This will be my first build, I would appreciate any opinions about compatibility, better parts but only if comparably priced as I am right at my budget limit!!
Usage: Gaming (Crysis mainly), General surfing etc, Little (occasional) graphics rendering & 3D modelling.
Budget: £1000 - currently my parts total £996
Purchase Date: Looking to start buying parts as soon as.
- Must be RAID 1 (I lost a drive once >> too painful to go through again)
- The wife says it must be quiet, as the current one in noisy
- Would like to be set up for O'Cing in future, don't think I'm ready yet.
Parts not buying:
- Keyboard & Mouse
I will buy one later, so SSD compatibility is important - I chose mobo with SRT, is there anything else to consider?
