Approximate Purchase Date: In the next month or so
Budget Range: Max Budget $700 After rebates and shipping
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, web browsing, editing, watching movies and tv shows
Are you buying a monitor: no
Parts to Upgrade: I scavaged a dvd drive from an old dell inspiron desktop computer but I'm not sure if i will be able to use it. I'm almost positive it's from 2005 or so. I will give more information if requested.
Do you need to buy OS: No
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: I have a Micro Center close by but I have noticed that they do not always have all of the parts. I do not mind buying off of Amazon or Newegg. Wherever you can find the cheapest price will work for me!
Location: City, State/Region, Country - Telford, PA, USA
Parts Preferences: I like the Intel and NVIDIA CPU and video card combo. I would prefer a 3750k but if it doesnt fit this budget then that is fine. If not the 3750k either the 2500k would work or a similar AMD CPU that is easily overclocked.
SLI or Crossfire: No
Your Monitor Resolution: I'm pretty sure it's 1080p. Here is the tv I want to use http://store.vizio.com/led-lcd-hdtvs/e390a1.html?___SID... If you could tell me if hooking up a pc will be possible then that will be great. I will also add a smaller and older monitor for web browsing while the big tv will be playing games.
Additional Comments: I am not crazy on graphics and don't really need to run BF3 on ultra, but I would like to run BF3, Dayz, and some Steam games on medium-high graphics with good framerates. I would also like to add that I will not take anything other than the Cooler Master HAF912. I am in love with that case. The rest is up to you guys! Thank you all in advance!
EDIT: I do not need a keyboard but would like a Razer mouse that is not wireless! The Naga looks awesome but if it cannot fit in the budget then thats fine. I love Razer products though.
Yea I guess I could drop the overclocking for now. I visited the microcenter over the weekend and I saw that deal. I was going to swap out the Z77 for the eXtreme4 by ASrock. What do you think? And how long will that deal go on for?
Yes I checked with them, actually this guy ran me through everything that I needed for a 1000 dollar budget but that's a little bit too much. So I can get both the CPU and motherboard for fantastic prices. Thank you so much man.
