My current rig is slowly becoming worthless, especially with games such as Crysis on the horizon. I decided to build myself a new computer, and me and my friend began picking out parts in anticipation for next generation games.
Overall the cost comes out to 1653.47 with shipping, on newegg. I am a little hesitant however to stop looking for parts as this is, despite me willing to lay down this much cash, pretty expensive. I'm not a wizster when it comes to the best parts, so I was hoping to get some suggestions and tips on my computer from the community.
What I am looking for:
1. General suggestions
- Pretty much anything you see wrong, or right, and can comment on it.
2. Better parts for less
- Going back to me not knowing the perfect parts for cost, I was hoping to see if anyone knew better
parts for less money. In short: Is it possible to lower the cost and gain
(or keep the same) performance? If so, please point me to those parts!
3. Super Man rig
- Obviously this isn't the most jacked rig you can buy, but it's pretty close and allows to easily leap over into next gen games. Try not to suggest parts that would make the price burn a 60ft hole in my wallet(assuming I had a 60ft wide wallet...). Read #2 for an good example.
4. You're an idiot!
- I'm an idiot that screwed up so bad you had to call me an... idiot. Try to correct my mistake for me by explaining where I went wrong and possible ways to correct it.
