for about 2years now.warrentys been up so no need to worry about voiding that anymore
i do moderate gaming in the sense that i play alot of em..but only when i have time(dam you school and work!).but my life revolves around my computer.tv.dvr.music.photos.etc all done on the same rig.
for starters i was thinking better video card
next i have a 24 monitor
now...but want something bigger...not sure how big id need to see a noticable difference..i dont wana upgrade unless its worth it.i also was tossing around the idea of dual monitors but im not sure if that would distort the image too much(when im watching tv).also my apt is facing sunrise so for most of the day its pretty bright.i have a lcd right now and reading that if i got a led it should give me a better quailty picture during the day.this true?
now with that video card im pretty set on it...but my mobo is not pci 2.0 so im afraid it might bottle neck it.if so what mobo should i get?
if my current mobo is fine is there a way to unlock bios?i ask because i currently have no overclock options(which isnt too suprising cuz its prebuilt) and i would like to overclock everything a little(just to learn how to do it)
right now im only running 6gb of ram (3x2) and maybe would add another 2gb stick just because
for power supply i was thinking along the lines of
Newegg.com - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-850TX 850W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
just to give me a little cushion in case i want to add more things later
is there anything else im forgetting?more cooling maybe(i live in texas.and temps easyly reach over 100 during the summer)
ill probally wait til cmas time rolls around because newegg had killer deals on most eveything and tv/monitors get pretty cheap than too.
with out price of video card included budget 500 to 1000
