So, I've watched the Tek Syndicate video on the $1200 pc build and I'm wondering if those parts are still "good" for gaming in 2014. The build includes...
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor ($169.99)
CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series H60 74.4 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($54.99)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($141.99)
Memory: Mushkin Redline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($74.99)
HardDrive: A-Data XPG SX900 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($119.99)
Video Card: HIS Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card ($409.99)
Case: Fractal Design Define R3 Black Pearl ATX Mid Tower Case ($114.99)
PowerSupply: Thermaltake 750W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($79.99)
OpticalDrive: LG GH24NS90 DVD/CD Writer ($16.99)
The prices are changing but the total is around the same. If this is outdated could I possible get some suggestions on a different build.
my budget is around $1000-$1200, Essentials: an Intel CPU and a 128gb SSD.
Quick note, the games I would like to be able to play are Battlefield 4, Planet Side 2 and most steam games.
