Hi there, I'm Kevin and I would thank you all for your help and advice. I am building a new computer for college now, and it will be my first build. My 2007 Macbook won't cut anymore and I need a pc for java/C++ programming(But I love gaming ) so I want a solid gaming build as well. I'll be building in two weeks.
So here is my build layout so far.
Case: Phantom 410(Black)
MotherBoard: MSI Z77 Mpower
CPU: Intel i5 3570k
GPU: MSI GTX 680 TwinForzr 2GB (I may SLI two gtx 680's in the future)
Memory: DDR3 Patriot 16gb 1600MHZ (8x2)
Cooling: Kraken X40
SSD: Samsung 840 series
HDD: Seagate 2TB
PSU: Lepa G1000 (1000Watt)
GPU. 670s perform the same as 680s. if you want more performance though, you should be looking at a 7970 as they are better performers for the money and come with crysis 3. the GPU choice depends if you want CUDA functionality for certain applications http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=72914&vpn=N670%20PE%20...
