Hey guys, I am getting ready to build my 1st true gaming pc and have put together a list of parts that I am planning on buying, however, i thought before I make a purchase I would get some other opinions on my build
What I need:
First of all, I have around $1750 to spend on my machine, the less i can pay however, the better so i can buy more games and software.
I play a lot of video games, anything from minecraft to BF4, so i would like to run these games on high(er) settings at 1080p
I also occasionally run game servers in the background while playing games.
I would like to be able to record the games I play (with fraps or what have you ) and yes, i have an extra external hard drive to record them to.
I also like programming and messing around with unity as well as modeling (and occasionally rendering) in Blender
Most importantly, I would like my pc to last me a while, as I am just entering collage and will not be able to buy a completely new system any time soon, just maybe upgrade parts here and there.
i do not expect to overclock anything because i want all of my hardware to last as long as possible, and i want the best stability possible
Here is what I came up with: EDIT: I have modified my build after reading your comments
Notes on my choices:
- I am still unsure about the graphics cards, since i have edited the build i have a little extra money to spend on the graphics card. I currantly have an R9 249 listed (4gb so that it can keep more textures in the memory) but i was wondering if for some reason that i should switch to a Gtx 780 (ti?) or if that would even change the performance considerably---also, is throttling due to heat an issue?
- Any thoughts on the monitor i have (re-)Chosen?
That's really all i can think of to mention at the moment, as always I appreciate you guys taking time out of your day to help me. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me. Thanks!
