Okies, so a few months back I acquired an Intel i7-3930k for basically pennies in terms of it's actual cost.. I've been chopping and changing with ideas of what to get or do with it..
The first of my ideas, builds, I had in mind is below. Featuring a P9X79
at heart. (See Signature/Profile)
CPU: Intel 3930k
Mobo: ASUS P9X79
RAM: 8x4GB Mushkin Enhanced Blackline Frostbyte 1600MHz
Case: NZXT Phantom / AeroCool Strike-X ST
SSD: 240GB Mushkin Chronos deluxe
GPU: Undecided still.
PSU: Antec HCP-1200 / Seasonic X-1250 (Decided I might want to go large and just leave plenty of spare overhead.)
That's the baseline that probably will need expanding when budget permits and cash starts to flow in.
Another idea, which has no parts to it at present. Is to build a mATX LGA2011 rig. Something fairly small but extremely potent..
I'm considering going to The Gathering
in Norway next year. Money and job permitting. And taking something small but packed full of all niceties and storage space.
Does anyone else have any ideas or suggestions as to what I can go for?
I don't and won't have a limitless budget, I'm not going to be splashing out £800 on Graphics cards. No way whatsoever, not when I still adore my Unlocked 6950 in Hoshi.
