ok. im trying to aquire a computer that will:
1) get me through uni
2) let me play modern and upcoming games (SKYRIM
), not necessarily on high graphic settings.
3) Not suck me dry
So. i have been shopping around, done a LOT of looking at graphs and stuff for components, and i have learned much. but im still a scrub. a friend of mine built his own pc a year or so back and he has helped me come up with set of things to buy to make this happen. Here it is:
Crucial 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz/PC3-10600 Memory Kit CL9 1.5V
Corsair 500W series PCU
Asus M4A88T-V-WVO/US83 880G Socket AM3, on board 128MB memory DVI VGA HDMI out ATX Motherboard
AMD Phenom II x 4 965 Black Edition 3.4GHz Socket AM3 8MB cache 125W processor
Sappire HD 6670 512 GDDR5 HM VGA HDMI PCI-E graphics card
Coolermaster Elite 330 Black Mid Tower Case
Western Digital WD5000AAKS 500GB SATAII 7200RPM 16MB cache – OEM Caviar Blue
LiteOn IHAS124-19 24x DVD RW DL & RAM SATA optical drive – OEM black with nero essentials
Xilence Red Wing 120mm Quiet Fan – 3&4pin connection
So there it is. I would love criticisms and advice. Atm i can get all that and a cheap monitor for £545, and my budget is very tight around that kinda price. If i could get something at this kinda level for any cheaper that would be awesome.
Also i would like to be able to add / swap out components in the future to upgrade, and keep level (or maybe a bit behind) the specifications for current games. At the moment im into sc2, and would love to get skyrim and either battlefield 3 / cod mw3 in the future. Just so you know what im aiming at
Hear my plea gamers of the world!
