Time for a new PC, the one i have got at the moment is gonna go into use elsewhere

Now this is what I have come up with at the moment

And yes the wheel needs to be in there as i am building a rig for racing, now i can stretch my budget to $3000NZD but i still need to fit in a monitor into that price

All parts will be bought from here. http://www.computerlounge.co.nz

So C'mon people help out a fellow OCN'er

I like it. I don't think anything is wrong.

 

When will you buy the PC? AMD 8xxx might come out.

Yeah good to go.

 

You did your homework very well. thumb.gif

 

650W should be enough even if you go CF later down the road.

 

I just don't see an SSD. Any reason you don't want to buy one?

Im contemplating using the one i have at the moment. But i would love to get a bigger one for this build.

If you can mange to somehow squeeze one into my budget then go right ahead and come up with something, just remember i still need to add a monitor to that price thumb.gif

Best person to ask about SSDs is Sean Webster... He is always on the HDD/SSD section of the forum. He knows the best deals out there thumb.gif

 

Also which monitor are you getting?

1440p monitors are amazing.

 

Unless you are an extremely competitive FPS gamer, I would always pick up 1440p. But people are different. They have different tastes.

 

Look into QNIX 1440p monitors. They are OCable to 96 or even 120hz as far as I know. More QNIX owners can help you.

 

I think it is the hottest 1440p Korean panel out there currently.

650 watts is a bit overkill for that system 550 watts could cover it fine

Also the Asrock Extreme 4 uses cheap and ancient D-Pak mosfets or at least the old Z77 did

A Gigabyte board would be better

So maybe something like this. The thing is with the power supply is that you are pretty much paying the same for 550w as a 650w here.
