Hi there.... looking at building a gaming machine in a few months, I realize some components may change between now and then but would like some opinion on this potential build list and if people had any ideas on good places to get parts:
Corsair Vengance DDR3 1600 2x4gb RAM
LG BluRay Drive
Corsair 750w modular power supply
Cooler Master CM690II Advanced Case
Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4 GHz Ivy Bridge CPU
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H mboard
Sapphire Radeon HD7850 Video Card
Seagate Barracuda HDD, 1000GB, 7200rpm, 64MB Cache, SATA 6 Gb/s
Windows 7 64bit (possibly 8 if its out before the build?)
I think thats the majority of items... dont think ive missed any important components.
I was thinking about an ssd. But as far as I read its only really beneficial for boot times and has no effect on gameplay? (boot times im not worried about really, im happy booting from a HDD, and the fact that you can't recover files from an SSD is a bit worrying.)
Just trying not to add on items that will increase what im paying and not really give me much extra, unless what I have read is wrong of course.
So, any tweaking one might make on any of the components, bearing in mind the price...?
Lastly, good retailer recommendations? I am familiar with PBTech and the Ascent website. Ascent are looking the most likely at the moment as they have some good feedback and seem to have more in stock of what I want than PBTech.
Appreciate your feedback!
