My System Specs


My two cents, if you don't have the money right away, start small and work your way up. Just build a simple rig with a 3570K, a 660Ti, and a few other basic parts. Then as you get more money, buy nicer parts, then sell your old components to recoup some of the cost. Yes, you'll end up spending more money in the long run, but at least in the meantime you'll have a workable rig that is still fully capable of doing all the work you want the super high end rig to do.

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Coolermaster GeminII; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI R7-260X; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 1TB WD Green, 2x 2TB WD Green; PC P&C 750W PS; Fractal Design Node 605;
Son's Rig: M5A97; 1055T; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; ASUS GTX650Ti Boost; 80GB Intel 520 SSD; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
