Hello computerforums! having read over these forums for a while now i've deided it's time to post, and also because the time to upgrade is upon me.
Now i plan on building a serious gaming PC that will handle any new games (battlefield 3, Diablo 3, Mass Effect 2 and so on). Now my budget is $2000 AUD for the tower alone. Here is what I have come up with:
Intel Core i7-950 3.06Ghz LGA1366 CPU - $308
ASUS P6X58D-E X58 LGA1366 USB3 DDR3 - $239
Patriot Viper-Sector7 12GB Kit(4Gx3) DDR3 1600 - $219
Kingston 2.5" 128GB SATA2 SSD HDD - $239
Seagate 3.5" Barracuda 2TB SATA3 64M HDD - $105
CoolerMaster HAF 922 Gaming tower - $128
800W PSU - $195
Inno3D 1536M GTX580 PCI-E VGA Card - $555
Total comes too $1,988. Me and my friend are gonna buy the same computer so maybe we can save some cash buying 2 of everything, but does this setup look good? is it worth my money? Or if you had similar budget what would you do?
Any help / criticism / comments are appreciated as i plan on ordering parts within a week, but really wanna get this right! Thanks in advance
