Now im somewhat limited since i do not want to assemble it myself. Im generally good with maintenance and upgrading, but the initial assembly is something i stay away from (and its a good thing, judging from my previous experiences), so in the end i will probably have it assembled for me by a company that deals with computers.
What i am looking for: A strong PC that can handle new releases on max settings.
My budget: Not going above £1700-1800. Cheap is good (but not if it harms performance significantly, or product quality)
Peripherals - none needed. Only the actual PC itself.
What i want to stay away from: SLI/Crossfire. I want a SINGLE NVIDIA GPU (that is not an internal sli in itself, like radeon 5980 was). I am tired of the issues that crossfire and radeons in general gave me, so please no more of that.
My current build: i7 960 @3.2 (OC to 3.6), Asus Rampage III Extreme, 2x Radeon 5980 Xfire.
I know its a very powerful computer, i am not changing it because of performance. Im changing it because half of the time motherboard does not recognise my RAM, radeons keep throwing me blue screens and corrupted graphics, my SSD is failing, and i think my CPU is the only thing that has not glitched on me yet. And since so many things need to be replaced, i might as well go for something brand new and then just ebay the old spare parts.
