It took seven years for my PC to finally give up, so I'm out window shopping for a new pet. Just as well since Borderlands 2 and Company of Heroes 2 will we arriving relatively soon.
I'm attempting to build a PC from the ground up. It'll be my first solo high range build, so I'm looking for advice, as much as possible. So far I've come up with the following:
Case - NZXT Phantom PHAN-002OR
Power Supply - CORSAIR Professional Series HX850 850W
Processor - Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz
Motherboard - ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77
Memory - CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
Internal HD - Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache
Operating System - Windows 7 Ultimate
I'll be salvaging my exterior hardware, DVD drives and my GPU (for now) off my old PC. If they aren't up to snuff a happy alternative suggestion is most welcome.
GPU - SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16
DVD-RW - LG GSA-H22N 18x8x16
DVD - LG GDR8164B 16x DVD, 52x CDROM
I'm trying to get the most out of this rig without exceeding $2000, any personal information or experiences with the aforementioned products is welcome.
