Need help building a new gaming comp
So here is the deal. My gaming computer, about 3 years old, broke. Since its around the christmas time i figuered id treat myself to a new one. Its been a while since i built a new computer so im a bit out of the loop on all the new and upcoming hardware. I need to keep it around 1k, and i want to be able to play current games and newer ones with good fps. For instance i was looking at crysis (which looks amazing) and i want to be able to play this at the higher, maybe not highest, level of detail. If would be great if you guys could give me your imput on what i should get. I was wondering if the pci express 2 was worth it over the x16. Also if sli of 2 cheaper cards was better than 1 expensive one. How much memory i should go for and if i should get one of the 10k hard drives, or a regular 7200. Remeber, im working with a budget here. Thanks!!
