My 18th birthday is next week and I am getting some money early. I am planning on buying within the next couple of days (Hopefully today!). I have about a 575$ish build up to 600$ with shipping. I am planning on buy everything at Newegg for shipping purposes.
So far this is the build I have chosen:
Rosewill CHALLENGER Black gaming ATX Mid Tower. ($49.99; 3 Fans)
But I was wondering should I get a AMD build? I was looking into these processors:
My goal is to run Planetside 2 on high settings. Understanding most of the game is CPU-heavy it is a hard derision for me. I saw a video that was uploaded in the past couple of days. Same exact build running PS2 on high.
Any advice would be helpful! I might be overclocking, but I highly doubt it. The reason I can not go higher is because of college starting in the fall and I need all the money I can get!
