US$1000 - US$1400
Dual-Screen 22" Monitors, 1680x1050 (approx)
Games / Settings Desired
I'd like to run ALL of these on the highest settings, smoothly:
Various other single player games (RPGS, etc)
Any other intensive software or special things you do (Frequent video encoding, 3D modeling, etc)
Parts that can be reused
N/A - Coming from a Notebook
I'm a graphic designer and a photographer as well as a pretty heavy gamer. I need a computer than can balance my gaming and my design - I will be running Windows 7 64-Bit. I can spend up to US$1400, but it'd have to be something that'll sustain itself for a few years. My idea is to get something with a strong enough video card now that'll carry me through the next few years. I'm a complete idiot when it comes to building a PC, so I apologize. I've been browsing the forums and have been getting ideas, but hopefully I can get some more specific feedback.
My dual-monitor set-up is more for work than gaming. I'm also not really familiar how to overclock. I've been reading http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...r*-Help-please! and it seems to be similar...but again, specific feedback is appreciated!
