It's finally time to update my old system which was
Intel Core2Duo E8400 3Ghz
Gainward Bliss Geforce 8500 GT SilentFX
Wow still works, but SWTOR is pretty crappy on it.
My planned setup for now (planning to go to order soon, hopefully tomorrow...I'm really tired of the low FPS, my game experience in SWTOR is not exactly great)
i5-2500k ~200 €
Thermalright HR-02 Macho ~ 39 €
EVGA Geforce GTX 560 Ti FPB ~ 220 €
8 GB DDR3-1333 RAM, whatever comes cheap
SSD: ADATA S510 120GB ~ 139 €
Aerocool Vx-E Pro ~ 53 €
harddrive: probably Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB ~ 130 € (a bunch of Hitachi Deskstars are cheaper but I'm not sure about them...can you recommend one or is the Samsung one clearly better?)
I'm not sure about the mainboard, I tend towards
GA-P67A-D3-B3 ~ 90 € which is the cheapest (I also considered GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 (132 €) and Asrock Z68X Pro3 (102 €), but both are more expensive and I'm not sure I need a Z68 board)....What do you think?
I've also considered EVGA Geforce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores (300 €) and MSI N570GTX Twin Frozr III PE/OC (360 €) for graphics, but I think I'm going with the cheaper 560 Ti because I'm not sure the considerable extra cost is really worth it for SWTOR and WOW which I mainly play. Any opinions on that?
Any good power supply units you can recommend? I'd rather not spend more than 50€ on it, as cheap as possible without having bad quality.
Thanks a lot. I'm probably going to install Vista 64-bit because I already have a license and haven't had any problems with it, works like a charm for me.
edited for prices. I realise these are not the most competitive ones, but I'm buying at a store and having it built there, so I've used their prices. I know it would be cheaper on the internet.
