Re entering the scene
Oh boy. Where to begin. Was a system builder and enthusiast for some years, but I got out of the game for a while because I became interested in the AR-15 building scene, and car scene. So I’ve been out of the loop since 2013. Last system was an i5 2500K 4.6GHZ with a ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3, 128gb Crucial M3, Radeon HD 7950 1,150MHZ. Benched about 10K on 3D Mark 11. I’m not familiar with much of anything post 2013, and I’m wanting to learn again and build a similar system, with a unlocked I5/I7 and a single higher end GPU, and spend about the same price. $1,300 ish.
I’ll have to catch up a LOT obviously, but I don’t know where to start. Where should I?
System before that was an I7 950 at 4.3ghz, and a GTX 570 (GTX 295 SLI failed me prior)
Anyways. I’m hoping to get back into the game, and hopefully some of my old knowledge will come back to me and I can simply resume progress.
