So not very pro here, hence why i'm posting. I'm trying to build a new PC. I would like to build something that has a high end core that i can expand on in the next few years. My budget is arround 1000$ and i'm sort of stuck wanting an i7 for CPU.Don't know a whole lot about the i5 VS the i7 but i figured for 50$ more why not..... For right now i would like to use my current case (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811156078) since...well i dont see the point of a new one. Also, just for now i'm thinking of keep using my nvidia GTX 460 overclocked (yes i know, it's a piece of shit but i will be spending for a good one in a few months).
so this what i came up with is the following:
motherboard: Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe Mini ITX LGA1155 Motherboard
optical drive: Samsung SH-224BB DVD/CD Writer
operating system: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit) (i have Win.7 already, but i lost the damn activation key. grrrr!)
all this would run me arround 900$ before tax (so i could even upgrade a little), and as i said i would be re-using my GTX 460 card and my case. i have all the rest (monitor, mouse, keyboards, surge protector, cables, etc, etc)
feel free to critique.
