Cheers from New York expat in HKG

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I guess I found out about this site since I was doing some searches on builds either on yahoo or google, and pics from overclock.net came up alot, so here I am.

A quick bio for the record: Age 22, I fly for Cathay Pacific on the Boeing 777 which is an international airline based out of Hong Kong. Other than flying, my hobbies are cars and technology. Reason I'm here is to look at builds and look around too see what options would be best suited for me without going overboard on parts and without breaking the bank. A perfect example would be that I was considering the i7 XXXXK for my future build, but that would be too much for what I intend to do with my system. So great advice here.

First computer: Can't really remember what brand of system it was but it I've been told that it was from a company in Michigan which does not exist anymore, ran Windows 95, and a Viewsonic 14 or 15-inch CRT.

Recent: Dell Inspiron D530 with an Intel Q6600 CPU, 4GB ram, EVGA Geforce GT430 video card, and Windows Vista.

Next build (Hopefully around June 9th of this year 2013): Intel core i5 XXXXK (either Haswell or Ivy Bridge), ASUS sabertooth Zxx motherboard, 16GB memory, Corsair PSU and Graphite Silver case with window, Windows 7 Home 64-bit, Samsung S23B550V monitor.

I'm looking forward to getting some great advice here and asking around so I get the best build without going overkill or breaking the bank.
