So I have a $1000 budget. But I will be reusing the following parts:
24" Monitor, 500GB HDD, NZXT Switch 810, Corsair AX750, Win 7 Professional 64-Bit, Keyboard, and Mouse
I want to overlclock! The computer will be mainly used for gaming, streaming, and video editing.
The games I plan to play are:
Modern Warfare 3
Star Wars: The Old Republic
I would love to run these games on MAX settings. Come to think about it...I dont think ive ever ran a game on MAX settings...that is very depressing...
I want my computer to be "Future Proof" to the extent that all I really have to do is upgrade my GPU and not have to really worry about anything else.
I put together a list rather its good or bad please let me know and help me tweak it.
CPU - Intel 2600K $269 ($20 off!)
Heatsink - Hyper 212 EVO $35
MoBo - ASUS P8Z77-V LK $140
RAM - GSKILL Ripjaws 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 $105
SSD - Crucial M4 128GB $119
DVD Burner - LITE-ON DVD Burner $18
GPU - Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB $280
Total - $950 (After Shipping)
I know theres the Ivy Bridge out right now but the 2600K is on sale and plus I heard the Ivy bridges are very HOT when trying to Overclock.
I do plan to add Watercooling to the system one day but thats in the future (Maybe tax time)
Please help me tweak this build and and help give me a long lasting solid build!
Thanks in advance!
