i am looking to build a new pc for myself something thats fast and great for gaming and would like to know what parts i should get, i have a budget of around £800. i am looking to buy
(1) harddrive size isnt really and issue just big enough to run windows and afew games from.
(5) gfx card
i am currently running a radeon hd 5870 1gb do you think it would be more cost effective to buy a second 1 of these and run them as SLI or to just buy a new card as not sure what would be more powerful.
i am not interested in overclocking so am looking for fast and powerfull straight out the box,
can i ask why that cpu as i was looking at the i7 cpu as they seem a little more expensive but far more power or am i reading it wrong,
the only reason i ask about the 17 is that i want this system to last me a few years so really dont want to have to replace parts in 18 months,
Which i7 by the way? I picked the i5 2500K because if you Google it,it takes some beating as a gaming chip. Here's a good comparison site, Compare. Have a look and I a lot of cases the i5 will well beat the i7 in the gaming stakes. But as I do not know which i7 you are talking about I cannot comment on the difference.
i was thinking of the i7 3770k as it can be brought for around the £250 price,
the reason i was thinking of this is that this system will have to last me several years now so i want the best i can get now in the hope of it lasting as long as possible. but not sure if this chip is worth getting or not for my system as the 1 you hav said may do me better
