Im going to be getting a new computer mostly used for gaming, watching movies, music, editing videos (sometimes), internet a bit of everything really.
I was going to wait for the new Gulftown but i believe hardly anything uses the 4 cores so nothing will use 6 for ages .... or am i wrong?
Here is my proposed rig and im hoping that it is future proof with only minor upgrades needed for years to come.
Intel® Coreā¢i7 Processor Extreme Edition i7-975 (3.33GHz) 6.4GTs/8MB Cache
6GB DOMINATOR GT TRI-DDR3 1866MHz (7-8-7-20)
ASUS® P6T DELUXE V2: DDR3, 2-Way SLI & CrossFireX on Demand
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit - inc DVD & Licence
2x 80GB Intel® X25-M (34nm) HIGH PERFORMANCE 2.5" SSD (upto 250MB/sR | 70MB/sW)
8x BLU-RAY RE-WRITER DRIVE, 16x DVD ±R/±RW
2GB ATI RADEONā¢ HD 5970 PCI EXPRESS - DirectX® 11
ASUS XONAR HDAV1.3 - Enjoy 100% Blu-Ray Quality Audio
INTERNAL 52 IN 1 CARD READER (READS XD, MS, CF, SD, etc)
COOLERMASTER HAF 932 FULL TOWER BLACK GAMING PC CASE
1010W Quiet Quad Rail PSU + 120mm Case Fan
COOLERMASTER V8 EXTREME CPU COOLER
Ok Now is this a good set up? is there anything that is bottlenecking it?
I was going to get the ASUS RAMPAGE II EXTREME: DDR3 and the 6GB DOMINATOR GT TRI-DDR3 2000MHz (8-8-8-24) but I thought that was a bit of an overkill as I wouldnt be over clocking it I dont think.
also I picked 2x 80GB Intel® X25-M SSD drives and I take it they are better than 2x 150GB Veloceraptors 10,000rpm? I was gonna use one for installing windows 7/and storage and the other for games and apps i would be using, is that the best way to make sure everything runs fast? or would just one larger capacity SSD be just as good?
any sugestions would be great.
