Okay! Im a software guy, not a hardware guy, so i have no idea about these parts, but i picked them out of MaximumPC and a few other PC magazines... Here is what im trying to do....
A windows 7 gaming computer, with a budget around 1500$. I need everything, including monitor/keyboard. My theory is that if it can handle games with the high intensities like Far Cry 3, then it can handle MSWord and Photoshop/DreamWeaver lol So here is what i have compiled so far:
Asus PA238Q $ 300
NZXT PHANTOM- 130 or Corsair CARBIDE 500R 140$
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO- $ 35
INTEL CORE I5-2500K 3.3GHZ $ 220
Gigabytega-z68xp-ud3 $ 155
Corsair Vengeance 8GB- 2 sticks x 4gb each- $50
Xfx Radeon HD 6950- $ 250
Sound Blaster x-fi titanium fatality series- $120
ASUS 24XDVD RW DRW-24B1ST- $ 20
Seagate Barracude 3TB $200 - solid state for massive storing
OCZ Agility 3120GB $160 - for high transfer rates, do i really need both of these?
Corsair TX750M $125
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM- $ 100
Microsoft Sidewinder X4- $50
Corsair Vengeance 1500 - $ 95
The only problem is that im not sure if any of these components are compatible with eachother, if they are out of date (some are), if there are better options for less money, and im also spending too much.
Right now, with those specs, im also 350$ or more out of my budget..
Help me slim the cost down, upgrade some of the more important aspects and help me save money on the stuff i dont need. Ya know, spec it out for me
I appreciate it all.
