New rig.... What to get?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Building a new rig... What would you guys buy if you where building a new computer with around 2.5k to spend.

I was thinking 970, but the new SB 2600k looks nice

So... what do?

Actually, you might want to wait for bulldozer. It's confirmed now that AMD is bringing the FX series back, and with 2.5k, you could easily build a rig with an 8 core FX cpu.
Does 2.5k include or exclude the monitors, peripherals etc? With that budget, you can build basically anything you want

Q2 is the general release date, it won't be before or around the 590, but when the 590 is out, just pick 2 up, and run them in your current set up, your cpu is far from being a bottleneck

If I can't spend that 2.5K for any other than a PC, I will build an SR-2 Rig with that.
