I enjoy maxing the games out. I have a monitor with the resolution of 1920X1080 and play games on it. What would you guys recommend for my next rig. Intel/AMD. ATI/iNvdia i'm open to all of it. Just need some advice. Thanks in advance !
Well I beleive lots can be done on such a budget. I would however wait a week for Ivy and get the i5 3570k. Get a Z77 board. 8-16gb of 1600 DDR3 RAM. A video card like a 7970, or 680. And if you can slip a SSD in you got yourself a SOLID build. I'll put a list together.
Edit: What do you plan on using from your old build besides your monitor (ie. Hard Drive?)Cpu:
Intel i5 3570K roughly $225-$250Mobo:ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 $145GPU:EVGA GeForce GTX 680 2GB $500RAM:Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 $45SSD:Corsair Performance Pro Series128GB $200
Just a rough part list. Edited by Andstraus - 4/17/12 at 1:50am
