Man, what am I do to? I guess buy myself some 1333, although.. I need power!
Part of me wants a rig so powerful it can run Crysis, 1920x1080, very high, AA, no less than 30 FPS consistently.
The other part of me says, "Man, thats crazy, that's a LOT of $"
But then the first part of me retorts with "Yeah, but think about it like this: You build yourself a computer that can play THAT at full settings, and you're set for YEARS.."
The second part of me is left speechless
Can anyone step in to defend the second part?
Cause.. perhaps its not worth dishing out all the $?
What I will use the computer for:
Multi-track sound editing
Asus P6T mobo
Core i7 920
1x Radeon 4870x2
6 gigs of triple channel DDR 1333 (guess I can't get that 1600 now)
Should I need more or less to be set for years of a NASTY rig? I'd rather get something that lasts 5 years as opposed to 2 or 3.
