Hi- I am building my first system and want something that can handle the graphics for the games I run: MS Flight Sim, Pro Cycling manager 2012 and League of Legends for now. I run Flight Sim the most, and want to be able to add Payware planes and add-ons and still have a good frame rate. Here's what I am starting with, per the recommendation of another Flight Simmer:
Well, I would say that you don't really need to get the i7. I would get the i5-3570K save yourself a little bit of money. The power supply you have is a little overkill unless you plan on adding a lot more to this system later on. I would get something like this
Should run your programs and games beautifully. and leave some money in your pocket to buy some more games. or if you must spend more money you could
-Buy a better Graphics Card
-Better looking case
-Led light fans (if your into the lighted look)
-Liquid Cooling(If you are going to overclock alot)
hello, thank you for your reply. I am decided on the i7 I mentioned. sry . also, I have a hard drive already, and is there any reason that it wouldnt be compatible? I need a sound card, so thats good, I need a optical drive, so thanks, and why would I get the MSI GeFroce GTX 670 2GB when I can get the one mentioned? is that one better? is there any chance you could update the list, because I am set on the i7 3770K Ivy Bridge. memory, I am flexible, storage I am good on. sound card, like I said, that would be great, power supply and optical, just need to make sure that they are compatible with the I7 3770K. thanks for you response! if you could update, that would be great! also, is my moniter ok? thanks!
I cant really afford a 670, why would you not take a 660 ti? I think it would work fine for my needs. also, is everything you said earlier tenaciousuk valid except the i5? like would all of that work for the i7 3770K?
