Code Named: ~ The Underdog ~
This will be my first build, and after months of research, this is what I have come up with.
Here is what I plan to use this system for: - Gaming (Guild Wars 2, COD Black Ops II, WoW, and eventually Indie Games and Modding) - YouTube Channel Creation - Video Editing (Adobe Premier) - Photo Editing (Adobe Lightroom/Photoshop)
My initial budget is 900.00, and I do not want to go over that (as I have other life expenses).
The idea with this build is to purchase a "foot in the door" system that will bring me into the "Intel/Nvidia World".
Spending more on things like my Motherboard, CPU Cooler, and Case Build-out (which includes fans) with the intent of keeping these items as core components for at least 5 years.
After a year or so, I plan to upgrade the CPU and GPU to higher-end models (such as i7-4790k/GTX 970 STRIX)
In the mean-time, I am planning to O.C. the G3258 to 4.5GH.
I know that until I upgrade, I will hurt in every area that's not gaming, and even somewhat in gaming itself. I also know that If I were to switch to a AMD/AMD or even a AMD/Nvidia system initially, I would be able to satisfy all of my need immediately. But as I said, I know after A LOT of research that I will eventually have a better system in the long hall with Intel/Nvidia.
Is this build/thinking wise? I would appreciate your feedback, but not your insults thanks.
I also plan to post build pics and eventually post video of my building adventure on my new YouTube Channel, which I will edit and post a link to once it goes live.
Thanks all for your feedback!
