Re: Mitch's PC gaming Build 2012 Need opinions
I am also in the middle of building a pc/gaming pc. I am going with a six core amd, it is the about the same benchmarks as an Intel but cheaper and I have never had a prob with them. Also i would not spend extra money on factory overclock because most of the stuff you can do yourself. The main thing you may want to look at are your RAM, HDD, and Video. If you go with a six core with a socket 3+ gigabyte mb you should be good, but the RAM, HDD, and Video are also important. I would go with at least 16g for a good 5year investment, also for hdd i would raid four smaller drives, it makes your hdd 4x as fast, instead of having to write a lot of data to one drive it writes it to four drive, and you may think about getting a ssd for your OS, then you can get one bad ass video card or cross fire to medium cards. What you think? this may save you some money and make it a little bit better. In my opinion.
