New $2500 build! Tags: New Build Systems Last response: February 5, 2013 1:19 AM in Systems Share efngn February 5, 2013 1:00:09 AM I would really appreciate some help with my new build as I am new to home-brew computers and could use as much help as possible! Thanks! Approximate Purchase Date: The end of this month, unless you think I should wait for the Haswells. Budget Range: $2300-$2500+. The plus is, if you think a $50 upgrade would benefit hugely, feel free to add that. System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, internet browsing, streaming videos. Are you buying a monitor: Yes, I will need a good monitor. Do you need to buy OS: Yes, Windows. Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Whatever's cheapest as long as it isn't "Joe's Cheap Shady Computers." Location: New York City! Parts Preferences: Intel CPU, NVIDIA graphics, unless you strongly disagree with that. (Please no AMD/NVIDIA turf wars!) Overclocking: Maybe, sometime down the line when it gets a little outdated. But again, if you think it a good idea, I will take your advice. SLI or Crossfire: No, too expensive. Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200, a 24-inch monitor for gaming, so has to have fast refresh rate and low input lag. Additional Comments: I would like a quiet PC. Again, for hardcore gaming on maxed graphics; it has to be able to handle some of the most lag-inducing games on the market. Why Are You Upgrading: My current computer sucks. I cannot game on it. Parts are not salvageable as I am giving it to someone.
