That is the build I'm thinking about going with. Problem is I'm about 80$ over budget, which I can deal with but I'd like to stick to my budget.
The fat I'm thinking of trimming.
1.) The case - But it's so sexy and comes with a fan set-up I'm happy with.
2.) The PSU - I defiantly want modular and I don't want to cut corners with a PSU any quality cheapies you know of?
3.) The GPU - I have a 550ti I could SLI with. But I've heard 1 2GB is stronger than 2 1GB
4.) The CPU - I was originally going to go with a 3350p, though I'd like to have the extra CPU power.
I thought about going AMD but decided against it. So no AMD builds please.
List from the sticky.
I'd like to keep to under 750$ but the closer to 500$ the better.
I'll be buying in the next week.
Gaming will be the priority. I will be running multiple clients of the same game. I tend to have alot of background clutter running.
Don't need a monitor, OS is kinda optional I have a windows 7 upgrade that I can con Microsoft into a new key for.
I'm in upstate NY no microcenter.
I like Asus, Nvidia, Corsair the tried and tested brands..
I have no plans for overclocking.
SLI for sure if not now then later.
I'm running a full HD LED (1920X1080) but it's a low refresh 60 Hz if I'm not mistaken.
Don't need an optical drive.
Any advice is appreciated. Kinda anxious this will be my first solo build.
