My first build.. suggestions please
I am going to be building a new computer here in the near future. Will be my first time building one, so if anyone has links to step by step guide on putting together i would appreciate it :D.
Currently my pc i been using for last 2 1/2 years (be sure not to die of laughter) emachines EL1300G-02w.
With all these new games currently coming out, i am in desperate need of a gaming rig. So after alot of looking around i think i've narrowed it down to what my build will consist of. Here is what im thinking of using; instead of typing out everything i have a link of the list of parts. My budget is 1200-1500 range.
feel free to suggest which parts to switch out to and what not :D
Intel Core i5-3570K, MSI GeForce GTX 660 Ti, Cooler Master Storm Scout - System Build - PCPartPicker
looks pretty good.
just remember, that 120gb ssd fills up awfully fast when your gaming. if you can swing a 240gb, i would highly recommend it.
was just looking at some other SSD's and didnt realize how cheap they are becoming now, ill prob switch that out for a higher storage one. Is the 750w psu overkill, or would be good to keep in the build for when i get a 2nd card for 2 way sli?
650 would be sufficient for sli 660's but 750 will give you a bit of breathing room.
A single 660 will be plenty for 1080 resolution.. if you think you'll need more power or will go SLI for a larger or multi-monitor set-up in the future then I would say grab a 670 now instead..
or if it's going to be over a year away then your best to probably get the next generation of card and stay on a single card.
Galaxy GeForce GTX 670 2GB Video Card (67NPH6DV5ZVX) - PCPartPicker
Stock cooler (though I think a 680's stock cooler) but a pretty good deal..
If you have 120GB SSD and your Steam folder is getting too large - simply buy another 120GB SSD and move Steam folder there. I have got 256GB SSD and still keep Steam folder on the second SSD.
oh I like that web site you found! pcpartpicker! interesting
