Keep this short, thinking of upgrading, especially due to x-plane being released soon (I HOPE).
Few things to note, I have a monitor, peripherals and all that jazz, just need the main computer, here is what I had in mind;
Gainward GeForce GTX 580
Intel Core i7-2600k
Gigabyte Z68X-UD4 MotherBoard
Corsair HX 750W ATX Modular PSU
Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3
Cooler Master Storm Enforcer Case
Western Digital Caviar Green 2TB 6Gb/s HDD
Samsung SH-B123L/RSBP BluRay
OCZ Vertex 3 120GB Sata-3 SSD
That comes to a total of £1485.86, which too be honest is fairly high.
If you have any suggestions to cut costs/improve the build, please tell me! I plan on keeping this build for a while.
Also! I want to know if there is a massive difference in performance between the i7 990x and the 2600k, and which one is 'more future proof'. The 990x costs almost 3 times as much
Finally! As far as sandy bridge motherboards go, should I get the z68 or p67?
