Building a Gaming PC


Recommended Posts

So recently I've started building a Custom Gaming PC and here's what I've gotten so far.


My questions are

What do you guys suggest should I get for other parts including Motherboard, Video Card, So on. I know I have to get a Motherboard that can adapt with an LGA2011 socket. Thanks!

in all fairness a game like ROR is very CPU heavy, so it will benefit in this game. the 6970 is a little dated at this point so the newer releases will struggle to get the higher end. If you still have a return window and want to go amd, you may want to seriously consider getting a r9 270 model due to it being a GCN card and allowing mantel to run. This is technology that benefits AMD cards. Not a huge price leap either.

One good thing about a graphics card is that there are always people who will buy them used, you should be able to list it on ebay and recoup a good amount back when you decide to upgrade.

Like I said needed to start Budgeting. I'm not looking for Max settings I just want to run good games. I know its not that great and when I move and get a new job my goal is to eventually get a TitanZ or Titan Black. Then I'm gonna make another build with a rather low budget for back up and I'm gonna put the 6790 in it. Also I didn't intend on getting a CPU More than the GPU that was just the crap luck on not having anymore money coming in


Also I can't use Ebay cuz I got screwed over which lead to my PayPal account going in the negatives (long story)
