Hey Tom's Hardware folk. I am looking at building a computer (have been since April of this year) and finally the time has come for me to ask your help, unfortunately there are damn floods... But whatever, I want to be able to play all the latest games ate 1920x1080 in their highest detail possible. So I hope you can help me out a bit here.
This is going to be my first build, though i have done some research over the past 6 months.
Approximate Purchase Date: As soon as possible.
Budget Range: 1400€ before rebates (I don't even know if we have them, thats why.)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, video editing, Browsing etc.
Parts Not Required: Mouse, OS, Speakers
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: www.alternate.nl ( www.azerty.nl is also an option, but they are more expensive with most of the stuff other then the CPU, but their prices differ each day.)
Country of Origin: The Netherlands
Parts Preferences: Intel CPU (AMD really didn't do well with Bulldozer, can't believe I waited for that, No preference in GPU's
So far this would put me at €1061,- leaving ~350€ to spend on a monitor, SSD, and HDD (Though I am not bothering with HDD's too much right now, I just need something small to get some games on, whilst not costing too much.) So I want to see what you all can do with this budget, and I may increase it if it has to be done. Then again, you may find some of the things I buy not good, and I can get better stuff, cheaper.
The list above will be changed if I agree with your suggestions/additions.
Couldn't find that particular model, I did find this one on Azerty (this is a Newegg link though): ASUS VE248H Which has only 2 ms responsetime, LED-backlighting, and for €185,- I think thats a pretty good deal, thanks for showing me that.
I also found out that Alternate hates Asus monitors (I couldnt find any on their website), thought that was interesting.
