Building my first PC

post #1 of 65
Thread Starter 
I'd like to build my very first PC.
I'd say 2-3000$ Budget.
With 1080p Monitor 22 inch or higher.
I want a bad ass Gaming PC that wouldn't need replacing for the next 5-10 years minus the Video Cards.
My current monitor is the Acer x223w , I can't seem to be able to find if its 720p or 1080...

Do you have any parts already? Mouse, keyboard, headset, etc. Do you need it right now, or can you wait? If you want to build a computer that you won't need to upgrade for 5-10 years (other than the GPU, like you said), I'd build an Ivy Bridge rig.

EDIT I also forgot to ask where you can buy from. Do you live in the US? If so, Newegg.com will probably be your best bet, unless you live near a Micro Center. If you live in another country, tell us what sites you like to buy from so that we can help you out. thumb.gif

Good on Mouse, (Legendary Thunderfury Limited Edition WoW Mouse) + Merc Stealth Keyboard.
Could use a Mousepad.
Monitor if my Acer x223w doesn't cut it.
New Speakers would be awesome.
The rest I'm cluelest.. I had taken the i7 3960x on the last PC I ordered but ended up canceling.

Hey.

I'll start right away. Need to know a few things, what do you use the puter for, what games you want to play and what case you'd like.

brb with some parts.

Edit: Ohh do you want to have an option to OC your CPU?

Edit: What I meant by case is what size format.

I'd say wait for Ivy bridge too if you can. If you must have now, I'd say get a mobo that could use IB when it comes out as it should be much better than SB.

This is pretty much just an overall good build imo. Theres plenty of money left over to and newer, better parts or change/add things.

I want a badass looking case ? smile.gif Amaze me hehe I liked the Thermatake + Armor Black w/e I had on ibuypower. But after looking at it while it was on it's way (before I canceled) I didn't like it so much haha. Something that looks like if it was gonna bite off your arm! LOL smile.gif SWtor at Ultra. SC2 @ Ultra. D3 @ Ultra , Resident Evil 6 (when it ever comes out for PC, damn you consoles!) @ Ultra. Basically all the sweet games that come out this year since next year or the one after I'll need to upgrade video cards anyways?

Alright, and everything from Canada!

Shouldn't be too long.

PS. get the 3GB 580, not the 1.5.
