If your system has sky's the limit upgradeability (good case, etc.) then this is most certainly worth it for the time being
If this works, it's win-win for you buddy
i'm guessing amd has the best bang-for-buck, but i'm totally new to them
not trying to pick sides or anything
i'm just new to building my own system, but i do have some background experience
took a A+ class, etc..
the thing is i wouldn't want to upgrade for a good 2-3 years if i made this computer
so i want to disguss, what is a good price point
something is telling me i wont be purchasing anything until next year
i feel like im rushing into it, and i believe the OC vets..i haven't done any research, and last time i rushed something.. i made a bad choice
i say i might put a hault to this topic
because battlefield games are the ones i will be into
so i need a computer that supports DX11, and will score me 80+ fps in the newest games that will be out
now this might be hard, because i doubt any has the inside scoop on what these new games will require...but im sure we can make an educated guess
ive been looking at the samsung 2233RZ 120hz monitr...but i feel like the monitor needs to be planned out first..then a rig
do i want to game at 1680x1050 (and not be able to watch movies at 1080p, and save money on NOT buying a blue ray player)
or do i want to game/watch videos on a monitor that supports 1920x1200 (i dont mind having black bars when watching movies, because the higher resolution in gaming makes the most difference)
so that being said, i really need to hear some replies
please, feel free to chime in.. i really want to do some research
some new stuff: fermi, hsi big bang, and new ati/nvidia cards coming out
with all these new terms i brought up, is it worth the wait?
i only have $350 saved up, and have no job yet
in 2-3 months i will have $450 forsure!
the thing is... if i get a job... this is how im thinking
drop 700 on a computer, and 2,000 on rims for a car (if i get a car)
or drop 2,700, and end up upgrading my computer later down the road
keep in mind if i buy the $700 set-up i would most likely upgrade the same time if i had the more expensive system
