AMD cards require an expensive adapter tho. Just a FYI.


His best bet at this current time is 2 GTX460's in SLI.

If you can afford 3 monitors and a graphics card that can actually run a game on 3 monitors a $30 adapter is not really a limiting factor.

But you are correct that the adapter should be mentioned as part of the price of the setup.

Something like this, and this then?

Were already talking like almost a Grand just on Graphics and new Screens . Seriously? Maybe I'll start out with one at a time. Do you guys think my mobo can handle this?

You only have 1 PCI-e x16 slot, so you would not be able to run 2 cards on that motherboard. Just something to keep in mind.

For FPS's, go keyboard/mouse. Especially if you go online. A mouse has significantly better accuracy, and you will get beaten bloody if you use a controller, however good you were on the 360. There are some games that are generally played better with a controller though. ACII and Super Meat Boy, for example. Depending on if you have wired or wireless controllers, just google how to use them (wireless ones need an adapter, you can cheaply buy them on Ebay or something).

You'll notice severely better graphics if you go PC, and you'll also notice you'll generally play better in any game genre, because you have so many more hotkeys easily at your disposal. But, you'll need to use them right, and get used to them.

Also, if you use systems like Steam or another digital distributor, you'll be cheaper off buying games as well, in the end.

PC's are a pricey hobby, something you have to face. My sig-rig is extremely mid-range and I've dropped nearly $800 into it. Admitted, nearly everything was fried from a Facebook-rage-induced sister unleashing hell on the reset button: leading to a Mobo RMA, RAM rma, CPU replacement, and most likely a HDD replacement.

Stay with the i5 and your RAM, get a $130ish EVGA or ASUS/Gigabyte P55 Mobo, and a 650W-750W PSU, and a GTX460/560 or HD6850/70 pair.

This rig I have no cost me around $1200.

And as for all the upgrades, for right now, I think the best route is going with a new GPU right off the bat, such as the one I mentioned, then buying 2 monitors, if I feel the need for a third, it will go on the list for my Q3 2012 Build.

Honestly, a gaming PC shouldn't cost too much money. I mean, everyone has a PC nowadays. If they just upgrade some things here and there they're usually pretty reasonable gaming rigs. I'd say, for your average PC, a new video card, maybe more RAM (1-2 GB should do it) and if needed an (extra) HDD (I'd say you'll need at least 500 GB space if don't want to play the de-install/re-install game), spending maybe... 300 bucks on these parts? Tops, I'd say. This might not let you run Crysis on high, but it'll play most games on graphics superior to the 360.

Maybe if you're really getting into it, and want better quality, you should consider replacing all the older parts with parts better for gaming, but don't start with it.
