Ive had the same dell computer for the past 7 years and its time for a new PC as the smallest thing I do on it it sounds like the fan is gonna blow up!
I want one that will be used for gaming, internet, watching movies like blurays, some video editing and really just a bit of everything.
The items ive picked may seem a bit much but I want to make sure it lasts me at least 5 years with minor upgrades, bearing in mind that im not a tech person, here is what I have been thinking about so far.
Case - COOLERMASTER HAF 932 FULL TOWER GAMING CASE
CPU - Intel® Core™i7 Processor Extreme Edition i7-980X (3.33GHz) 6.4GTs/12MB Cache
Motherboard - ASUS® RAMPAGE III EXTREME: 3-Way SLI & CrossFireX, SATA 6.0GB/s, USB 3.0
Memory - 6GB DOMINATOR GT TRI-DDR3 2000MHz (8-8-8-24)
Storage - 160GB Intel® X25-M 2.5" SSD (34nm / upto 250MB/sR | 100MB/sW)
10x BLU-RAY RE-WRITER DRIVE, 16x DVD ±R/±RW (£119)
Power Supply - CORSAIR 1000W MODULAR PSU (HX1000) 80+ ULTRA QUIET
Processor Cooling - TITAN FENRIR EXTREME DIRECT TOUCH COPPER CPU COOLER
Sound Card - ASUS XONAR HDAV1.3 - Enjoy 100% Blu-Ray Quality Audio
Operating System - Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
Graphics Card - Not decided yet if I should go ATI HD 5870 or Nvidia GTX 480....
I havent fully decided on the motherboard, I wont be overclocking it so maybe the Rampage III is a bit much, the other choices I was thinking about were - Asus P6X58D Premium Intel X58 or Asus P6X58D-E Intel X58 (im not really sure what the difference between them are)
Please let me know what you think and if this sounds ok or if you think I should change something, Im looking for something that will run quiet and be able to handle anything I do on it.
