Looking to build a gaming rig. Also this will be my first rig build (I will take pics and post them when done).
Please no need to be gentle with me, if I mess up lingo, component combos or the like let me know.
Approximate Purchase Date: within the next 3-4 months
Budget Range: 1500 buckaroos
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming and some movie watching.
Are you buying a monitor: No
Parts to Upgrade: fresh build, so all
Do you need to buy OS: yes
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.com
Location: New Hampshire, USA
Parts Preferences: None really, I have selected Intel however
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920X1080
Additional Comments: I would like it as quiet as possible.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I think it was time I finally build a rig that would last a while that I could just upgrade components on as needed/wanted.
Mostly games like WoW, RIFT, DiabloIII and the like.
You would see better performance out of the AMD card for those games, but why buy something so powerful for those games? You really don't need to spend that much, those are hardly demanding titles at all. If you are an MMO gamer most of them are highly optimized which means you don't need top of the line hardware to run those games. A 7850 would be able to max those games for 3-5 years without a problem.
