It is time to build a new computer, finally squeezed the life out of my P4 3.0, the new games are getting to greedy for my Radeon HD2600 and it's slow AGP slot.
I say reborn newbie as I had kept up with everything new up until about 5 years ago when I finished my current build.
I am looking for suggestions for a new cpu/mobo/ram/video, I already have the case (ultra tower), psu (ocz 700W), optical drives and hdd (1 TB across 2 sata drives and an additional 600Gb across ide).
I am not a gamer but the games I do play tend to be car racing and fps and I want them to look great.
Right now I have intel but have been a fan of AMD in the past, and I am a loyal ati guy.
I am looking for suggestions in the $500-$700 range, please remember I am in Canada.
I have no idea when it comes to current slot types, processor names etc, I don't think I intend to go down a built video card route, but other than that I am pretty open to suggestion.
I know this question is a little vague but I trust I have given you enough to work with.
Thanks in advance...
