To all -
I'm building a new desktop for some medium gaming, coding on multiple monitors, and statistical work. I'm a huge fan of the L4D and CSGO games, so FPS are along the lines of what i'd like to play. I currently have a 27" 1440p S.Korean monitor that runs at 60hz, and willl most likely game @ 1080p while using the higher resolutions for statistical work and coding simply for screen space.
I'm also currently using a Razer Deathaddler 2013 mouse and DAS keyboard with cherry switches.
So here's what I picked up on my own, I'd simply like to gather some community input on what they would change, abandon, alter, etc. I'd like to keep this desktop around $1000-$1100. Although i cannot show you, the rebates attached to most of the items I've picked out bring my total build price (including paste and fans and brackets) to just over $1000.
So here's the setup =
