Hello all, Just looking for your thoughts on this rig build. I have been looking around and taking suggestions for the past few days and this is what i have finally come up with. I have a limit of 2000, and i plan on hitting close to it (dont want to hold back) :
I currently have 16GB of 1333 RAM, a 2TB HDD, a i7 2600 (not the k version) and also a bluray drive that i can reuse.
My main plans for my first build is going to be gaming with no restrictions. I will be using my 32" Samsung 3d smart tv as my monitor (think it can get 120hz) but i do plan on getting 3x monitors for crossfire, (The monitors will come later) And i also have a pair for Astro a50's for my audio. My tower isnt set, but i will be wanting a full tower that does looks cool.
I have a few questions below also:
1. Im wondering if i should scrap the 3770k and just keep the 2600 which is a decent . (im not sure on if i will be overclocking, but i dont mind the idea of being able to if i wanted)
2. If i should just drop the 16gb of 1600 RAM and use the 1333 i currently have.
3. Should i get a sound card? Or will the on board audio be good enough for gaming? (I only wear a headset due to the hours i game and needing to be quiet)
4. If i do end up scraping the 3770k and using my current 2600, What are your thoughts on other models of the 7970's? (Like better versions then the ones in the link)
Anyways thanks for reading my noob topic for my first build.
ALSO i will be buying and building it in almost 3months (I go to the states for holiday soon). So this may change in price and other pieces may be available
I don't believe the CPU you chose is good for gaming, Something like the Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core, Also I noticed you only have 120GB SSD for storage, do you have a HDD already? If not buy a 1TB HDD because that 120GB SSD won't hold an entire computer's worth of information and data.
I don't think you will need to crossfire the GPU's either, My build will be running 1 GTX 670 which I believe is close to the Radeon HD 7970.
Thanks for the replys.
I already have a 2TB hdd that i will be reusing.
Any reason you suggested the i5 3570k over either the i7 2600 i currenty have or the i7 3770k for gaming?
I also want to crossfire for eyefinity after i get a nice monitor setup.
And EasyTransfer i did want the 7990 in your build but living in Aus either shipping will hit the pocket hard or the inflation over here for that card will.
