I need some help on deciding on my new build. Well, I only got this horrible 4-year old rig, running on AMD Athlon II X2 240, DDR2 platform, HD4600 series graphic card, with crappy HDD. I'm still saving some money to have at least a budget of US$ 1,500 for the unit. I'm trying to build something that is isn't too fancy and pricey, but can run most new game titles with decent graphics at mid-high settings, from BF3 to future COD and MOH games (Yes, I play more FPS games). I'm not too much of a techie, so, I'm gonna need some feedback on the following build:
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k
Motherboard: Asus Maximus V Gene
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8gb ddr3 1600
Graphic Card: Asus ENGTX580 DCII
PSU: Corsair AX750
SSD: Corsair Force GT 120GB
HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB
CPU Cooling: Corsair H80
I still got this Carbide chassis, so I need not to spend for a new one. Will this build suffice? Are there any way I can cut down the price tag without sacrificing the performance that I am expecting? So far, those hardware are the ones that are easy to get hold of here in my location. As much as possible, I would want to save myself from spending on shipping fees, so, my choice of hardware is a bit limited.
Thanks everyone, in advance!
