I want to buy my first gaming rig for budget of 1700$
i think its cheaper building it myself is it ?
and is this build good enough to play games on highest specs on a 1920*1080 monitor for few years?
i7 3820 (3.60 GHz,4cores) ( i think its the highest i7 base clock without overclock)
evga GTX 680 ( i will sli it later )
corsair vengeance 8gb ddr3 1600Mhz
Crucial M4 256 Go SATA Revision 3.0
Case :Zalman Z9 U3
Corsair GS800 Edition 2013 - Gaming Series 800W
Optical drive: Asus DRW-24B5ST
Asus P8Z77-V LK
Samsung SyncMaster S23B300B
and i will buy another 2To HDD later
i will need the i7 for 3d and video encoding later
is their any difference between the corsair vengance 8Gb ddr3 1600 and G.Skill Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 ?
is the 7970 better than the gtx680 ? (i know it's cheaper but better ?)
how much watt is enough for sli or crossfire ?
Thanks for your suggestions , but isn't the 2011 motherboard better
so i can upgrade to a 3970x for example later ?
and i heard that the 680 gtx is a little bit better than the 7970 and the price difference worth it ?
Generally people will go for the 670 rather than 680. The 680 has roughly 5-10% performance increase but with a 25% price increase. The 7970 performs better in some games the 670 performs better in others. Its much of a nothingness if you ask me.
