Sorry for the slow update on this guys. My computer has died on me, won't turn on anymore, and if it does(1/25 times), it freezes and shuts down.All the more incentive to get a new computer I guess!
Havent really felt like getting on, ever since I'm thinking about purchasing the parts i've stayed away for some reason. I've also really excited to watch my friend build the computer, I want to learn pretty badly..have been looking at some pictures of rigs on here.looks sick. A
I decided to go with HD 4780x2(if i upgrade to a 26" is it worth it?..im also looking to play future games well too) and drop the monitor to save some money, I'll just stick with my 22" inch for now and possibly upgrade to a 26" later on. Also decided to go with the NZXT Apollo Black Case. $80(60 after rebate)Newegg.com - NZXT Apollo Black SECC Steel Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases
I'm just wondering if the other parts of the computer can support that amount of power? Just making sure because some people say it might not be enough. Also my friend can overclock the processor or whatever(I'm guessing thats only what is overclocked..I'm not sure). Also, will I need to purchase any additional fans(or something like that) or some form of a cooling system? I heard HD4780 run very hot.
Also purchasing a few other things for gaming:
Keyboard: $80Newegg.com - RAZER Lycosa RZ03-00180100 Black 104 Normal Keys 7 Function Keys USB Standard Gaming Keyboard - Keyboards
Mouse:$44Newegg.com - Logitech G5 2-Tone 7 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Laser 2000 dpi Mouse - Mouse
Mousepad: $17Newegg.com - XTRAC RIPPER XL Optical Mouse pad - Mouse Pads & Accessories
Getting Vista as well which is sold for $133.
I've come to around $1450(roughly) price range before rebates and the alike. Seems reasonable for top end gaming. What do you guys think? Any suggestions are welcome.
