Upgrading my system
I think I might build a new system and use the old parts for my dad's build.
I do not need a complete system, I going to reuse the case, hard drives, dvd drive, and possibily power supply. The parts are in my sig.
CPU-probably the most obvious choice, the Core i7 920
MOBO-I am not to knowledgeable in this part
CPU Cooler-I figured I go with the Cooler Master V8 unless someone has a better suggestion. Will the Cooler Master fit in the case I have? I assume it would.
RAM- I am going to get 6gb's. I figured I would get DDR3 1600 since it is not that much higher in cost over DDR3 1066.
GPU- I was looking at the EVGA GTX 275 1792 version. Does anybody know when the new Nvidia card are coming out? It would be nice to use the Step-up program so I could get a Directx 11 card.
PSU- Do you think I could reuse the PSU I am using now or would it better to get a new one?
OS- Windows 7 Pro
This build is primary use will be gaming and the other usual stuff.
I have been doing some searching and it looks like I am going to be spending around $1000 even reusing some of my stuff. Is there any reason I should hold off? Are prices going to come down anytime soon?
Man, what would it cost to build a whole new system? When I built the rig I am using now, which was about 2 years ago, I spent around $1000 for everything but the monitor. Gaming is starting to be an expensive hobby.
