Well its been a few years since my last build which my wife has now took over. So now i think its time to build another rig. This will continually be updated with new parts and pieces based on what you guys say and what i think.
I plan on doing a fair amount of gaming and i usually stream to justin.tv so i need this to be able to handle the demands of gaming/livestreaming without lag on my end.
I am fairly certain i want a i7 2600k because i do plan to oveclock this (stick with air coolers because i have never done anything water before and dont want to break it
Two monitors is a must! I'm looking for around 1080p 20-24inch monitors 1920x1200 is perferred so if i need to go bigger to reach that res id do it
USB 3.0 is pretty much a req because i want to use a usb 3.0 capture card to stream console games
Ram i currently have 6GB in my current build but i think ill go with 2x4GB sticks?
Optical drives im looking for is DVD DL writer not really into blue ray players.
Im looking to do a SSD for my OS and possibly a few of my most played games. so maybe like 64+GB.
Also for the gpu on my last build i went with a gtx 295 and then DX11 came out XD So i dont need a top of the line gpu if SLI'ing two gpus will give me around the same perfomance for the same price.
As for the case i had an antec 1200 and im fairly prone to that case, the amount of space/ease of access was really really nice. Just would be nice if the case had built in usb3.0 on the front
Bought on amazon so i can unlock them
Im not looking to order the parts today as ill be out of the country for a few weeks and wont be back until the end of the month. I can wait longer if better SSD's are about to be released or a better MOBO revision is comming out in the next few months. I made the misteak of buying the first set of MOBOS for my 920 build and i had a few problems with usb drivers and such.
As always thanks to those that help me with this and im really excited for this build
