Posted here in in Sept last year about parts for my first custom build, the feedback was great and i love my machine to bits. Now that i have shown my house mate the joys of gaming
- he wants in.
At the most he has $900 to play with; for both build and monitor, we dont need peripherals yet. So far i have:
CPU: i5 2500k - $215
MOBO: ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 - $169
RAM: Gskill RipJaws 2x2 - $35
GPU: EVGA GTX 560Ti - $269
PSU: Corsair 600 - $88
This too extreme?
Now i havent worked out a case but i think we will go with this screen http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?mai ... s_id=19716
- Samsung 23 LED $165
As a reference obviously im not looking for him to be able to play BF3 maxed, however i would like it to be able to run D3 smoothly and smash any current valve titles easily.
Thoughts, ideas? cheers guys.
