First upgrade since 2007, looking for high end parts!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Until today, I had no problem running every game at med-high settings and reasonable fps. But today, BF4 Beta came out and wow, it is totally unplayable for me at the lowest settings (0-30 fps). I know it is not optimized yet but I don't think I can expect a much better performance at official release.

I am thinking of getting a new system, but since I was not following the hardware scene all these years I don't know where to start.

I am not in a rush, I will probably buy in the next month or so and I am doing a research now so I know what to expect to pay.

I am looking for high end parts that will last for many years. Back in the day the Q6600 and 8800GTX were the most popular choices and I am glad I bought them because they lasted all these years, except the GPU which died 1 year ago.

These are the parts I want to replace:

CPU+Cooler
Motherboard
Ram
GPU
PSU, unless I can still use my Enermax Infinity.

I will keep my case and my other peripherals. I am not a big fan of SLI/Crossfire (dunno why) so I would probably prefer a single card. Also, I would prefer an Intel CPU and Nvidia GPU, but the newly announced ATI card is supposed to be awesome?

Anyway, looking for a really powerful system mostly for gaming and general usage. No rendering and editing stuff.

Budget I'd say would be around 1500 Euros.

Sorry for the long post and thanks for reading.
