Hey guys, long time no post. I'm hoping to build a rig soon to game on. Mainly FPS, racing and fighting. Other than gaming I would be multitask web surfing (10-20 windows/tabs open at a time) light Adobe Photoshop use and netflix.
I already have:
Keyboard (have a mouse but could use a new one so recommendations please)
Windows 8 64bit OS
Budget 500-1200 USD If need be i have a couple cases I might be able to use until buying a new one so that can be played with on budget
What I would like for gaming:
minimum 1080p with ultra (maxed out everything) settings on new games ex bf4, advanced warfare, farcry 4 not only on todays games, but for games to come.
And instead of ATi I think I want to go with NVIDIA for gpu. Im kinda of leaning towards running sli/crossfire but lets assume 1 card.
Black case blue theme preferred.
I'm really not sure how much HDDs affect which psu is needed but in the future I plan to run 3 three TB hdds and maybe something like 250GB ssd.
Heres something I was working on feel free to go off that or change it up entirely.
Thank you very very much for the help. Also I dont have any preferences on where I'm buying from so I will definitely be shopping for best prices.
