Hi guys! It's my first time building my gaming rig. I'm currently using a four-year old dual core laptop which is really getting slow right now .. So since I'm going to college next year, I decided to get a really kick-a$$ pc that will support my gaming and school needs . I really want something that can maxed out most of the games today and hopefully for the next two years (Ultra settings) 60+fps as I have never experienced that using my old laptop that my dad gave me before (Which I am still using right now to type this until I get a new pc). So any suggestions or advice guys will be totally appreciated!
Approximate Purchase Date: April or May 2013
Budget Range: $1800-$1950 including TAXES
System Usage: Gaming (Crysis 2 and 3, Arkham City, BF3 and etc.) , Heavy word excel processing slight video editing/encoding, slight photoshop and HD MOVIES!
Parts Not Required: OS, speaker, keyboard, mouse
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Please choose the parts only in NCIX.com (I chose this website because they will be the one to build the PC too so that I can just pick it up after and no hassle.)
Parts Preference: Intel for the CPU, then either AMD or NVIDIA for the GPU
SLI or Crossfire: YES! So please choose two GPU which would perform good in this configuration.
Monitor Resolution: YES! Please include monitor in the build! 1080p (Around 23-24 inch)
Thanks in advance!
P.S. * As for the storage, looks like hybrid drives by Seagate is pretty good. I don't want SSD+HDD cuz I think it's a bit complicated to use. Suggestions?
Yes I need monitor included in the build. And as I've said in my first post, I need all the parts to be chose in NCIX.com cuz they will be the one to build the computer too. Thanks for helping anyways!
