Re: First Rig- need help to determine if everything will work.
semes like a fine pc to me.
but how much is she willing to pay. you can easy make it cheeper.
she does not need a twin trozer gtx 560ti. just a standard gtx 560 ti will be way more than enough.
that twin trozer edetion cost more then a standard, and she does not need that cooler because she is not overclocking.
but if you do it for her it will still not be nessasary to have that cooler because the card is cool enough.
if you are not doing any serious overclocking with volt tweaking then it is just wast of money.
and about the CPU. i will rather buy a core i5 2500k. it is cheeper and more then enough for her. and it can be overclocked as crazy if needed.
just overclock it slightly and the standard cooler is still enough for her. for that reason i dont think she needs a better cooler. the cpu as stuck is very powerfull.
she does not need it overclocked. if you still want to overclock it the standard cooler will still make it even faster. the cooler might be a waste of money for her use.
but thats up to you/her.
you might also want to considder a gtx 560 (non "TI"), it is cheeper and can play anything.
but if she realy want to start playing games and want to spend the money then go for the better card. just considder the cheeper one.
tell her about the difference and make her dicide what she want.
