I've been out of the loop for years now and looking to build a new rig after selling my laptop. I've been a big Intel/Nvidia guy and considering I don't have a price range but I want to spend as little as possible on this. So I'm going AMD route (dont know much about AMD except they are not overpriced) and still debating on nvidia or ati, i'd rather be compatiable and do a amd/ati build but i love nvidia and their new update for their graphics card and settings are great!
The rig wil be hooked up to my 42" Sharp Aquos HDMI 1920x1080 IIRC, used for gaming (phantasy star II, Tera, borderlands 2, starcraft 2) and 3d studio max (making 3d models & animations)
I'd like to run everything on ultra if I could.
This is what I've built myself so far and feel it could be altered if anyone knows better it would be much appreciated! Everything is being purchased through Newegg
