I am preparing to build a new gaming system and need some advice on what to buy. I am currently looking the EVGA x58 SLI Classified MB (was told to make sure it’s a 16x16x16), and as as much DDR5 RAM that I can plug. I am thinking about using EVGA GTX 470, or 480 video cards (what ever gives me the best graphics-much difference? Can they make use of HDMIquality?) I am looking at the i920 or i950 processors and have read that the i series of CPU’s are going to be discarded very soon by Intel.
I plan to use a SSD drive for my OS and run Windows 7 and figure this will all require at least 850 watts. I don’t want to upgrade this for years to come, so where should I go from here? Thanks!!!
