Hey Everyone,

 

Looking at building a new gaming pc. Here's the specs I'm thinking about below, your constructive input would be appreciated. I'm aiming to spend $2000 on it.

 

PROCESSOR: Intel Core i5 4670K Quad Core

 

MOTHERBOARD: ASUS Z87-PLUS Motherboard

 

RAM: G.Skill Ares F3-1600C10D-16GAO 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 Ram

 

GPU: Sapphire Radeon R9 270X Boost OC 4GB

 

HDD 1: Samsung 840 EVO Series 250GB SSD

 

HDD 2: Seagate Barracude 2TB ST2000DM001

 

PSU: Corsair RM-650 90 Plus Gold PSU

 

CASE: Corsair Obsidian 650D Case

 

MONITORS: 2x LG 23EN43V-B 23" LED Widescreen Monitor

 

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64

 

 

Thanks! (btw I'm not sworn to AMD/NVIDIA for GPU.. That's what was on special at the time)

Ok I spent $100 on my PC and I still get 60 fps on MC, 400 on coduo, 160 on new cods, and around 90 on Killing Floor.

Whatever floats your boat man.

Syndicate does make a point. A computer even half that amount is feasible to run games over 60 fps.

 

Just a few tips:

  • I know that I'm not you, but personally I'd just stick with 1 TB and the SSD
  • Buying (4x4GB) slots of ram is proven to process faster/more efficiently
  • Liquid cooling to overclock CPU
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (You get a free game when you buy a GTX GPU. I believe it's Assassin's Creed 4)

Happy building!

I would actually suggest you go with the 2x 8gb as you have room for expansion, the difference will be barely noticeable in normal usage

Depending on what you're doing you will most likely not use 16GB of ram, consider buying a 8GBx1 instead of two and upgrade when you feel you need more.

Looks like a great gamer to me, and will probably be good in future generation gaming.

I would max out your RAM with 32 Gbs if you do a lot of VM's.

You can always use the extra as a RAM drive for gaming, when not in use. (at least I do.)
