Welcome to OCN. You'll find the awnsers to everything you ever wanted to know about PCs....and alot of answers you didn't want to know too
ok so my budget is somewhere around 2 grand give or take a little and i need everything but a CPU heatsink thingy and im not sure on what i am going to get but i want to go with a black and white theme cause that is what my fan on the cooler has and i like what it looks like. But im not sure if i want an actual case or a test bench<-- not sure if that is what it is called. but any help on parts i should look into would be great. I was not expecting this many people to greet me here but im new so i guess anything that happens here is unexpected by me.
I think a
-8 gb OCZ Ram
-a 750 Corsair PSU
-A EVGA 132-YW-E179-TR LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 790i SLI or Rampage Formula
-A GTX 295 or a 4870 X2
-A 1TB hard drive of choice
-a Cosmos 1000 for the white + black
would be the a good set up off the top of my head. BE SURE to pick either the SLI or CROSSFIRE mobo for the GTX 295 and 4870 x2 respectively.
