And I could not be happier with my decision. I am just checking in here to see if you all think my system will need upgrades anytime soon. I am hoping I can hold off 1 more year, but am willing to do some upgrades sooner.
i5 2500k (OC'd to about 4.5)
16 GB Corsair Vengeance
2X 6950 (2GB each) in CFX (I plan on getting 1 top of the line GPU as opposed to CFX next time)
P67 PRO (REV 3.1) MOBO
60GB SSD (this was definitly a mistake should have gotten at least 128gb for my boot drive)
thats it for the stuff that I would need to upgrade. I plan off re-using
750ww Corsair PSU (Modular)
2X 23in Monitors
MS Sidewinder Keyboard
2 TB HDD
Windows 7 OEM
Hyper 212 cooling system
I think the initial investment on the system was like 1800-2000 dollars but if I reuse the stuff in the second cat I think I can build the next on about 1,000 to 1,200. If my parents or whomever want my old guts I would leave the PSU and get a new one.
thanks for the replys, I was seeing some issues with Guild Wars 2, but I upgraded to Catalyst 13.2 beta and it is much much better (like 20-30%) I can now run on Ultra and get over 60 FPS everywhere (in Lion's Arch it dips to the low 50s)
