Hey guys, this is what I have come up with after a little bit on research on each part, would like to know if anyone sees any flaws or room for improvement while still in the 1100-1200 range.
This PC will be used for gaming, mainly a heavily modded skyrim as well as Shogun 2 for a while then maybe BF3 and other fps's, all at max settings. I went with a only a 120gb SSD for now because just skyrim and Tw:s2 should last me a while, giving me time in the future to buy a 1tb hdd or maybe another ssd. Wont be overclocking initially, but want to the opportunity to be there once i learn more about it.
The monitor was recommended as a cheap ips, but i want to know if the 6ms response is considered slow for gaming?
Would also like advice on the case, is this good or is a cheap case a not a good idea?
About the monitor - while most enthusiasts will rave about their 2ms response monitors, I'm fairly sure the difference of 4ms is imperceptible - either that or you're really good!
As far as the case, that's a personal choice that I think has as much to do with asthetics as functionality - if you like the looks of the Tempest and it has the features you want, then it's a good budget case
-cheaper board but is about as good
-cheaper ram that does the same job
-the hyper 212 plus is the older model. isnt as cool but the 10 dollar difference is pretty huge to pay for 2-3c
-cheaper and faster SSD. no reason to get the vector
-spend more on the case. you will see why its worth it when you start building
-dont get a chessy keyboard. once you go mechanical, you never go back. i can guarantee that you will type faster with one
