    Bying a new computer - Help!

    So, I finnaly decided to buy a new computer, as I'm tired of playing with less then 30 fps in raids.


    So, my problem is that I dont know a shit about computer specs, (Whats good and whats bad?) That's why I'm asking you to help me. So far I've picked out some stuff that I got from a premade computer:


    Cabinet: Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced

    Power Supply Unit: Silver Power SP-S650M 650W PSU ATX 12V V2.3, 80 Plus Bronze, Modular, 4x 6+2pin PCIe, 8x SATA, 7x Molex

    CPU: Intel® Core i7-3770 Processor Socket-LGA1155, Quad Core, 3.4Ghz, 8MB, Boxed w/fan

    Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V LX, Socket-1155 ATX, Z77, DDR3, 1xG3+1xG2-PCIe-x16, CFX, VGA, DVI, HDMI, UEFI

    RAM: Kingston ValueR. DDR3 1333MHz 8GB, CL9 Kit w/2x ValueRAM 4GB DDR3

    Graphic Card: Gainward GeForce GTX 570 1280MB PhysX PCI-Express 2.0,"Golden Sample - GS", GDDR5, 2xDVI, HDMI, DisplayPort, 750MHz

    SSD: Corsair SSD Force Series 3, 60GB 2.5" SATA 6 Gb/s (SATA3.0), 525MB/490MB/s read/write, SandForce® SF-2200, w/bracket

    HDD: Seagate Barracuda® 500GB SATA 6Gb/s (SATA 3.0), 16MB Cache, 7200RPM, 3.5"

    OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

    This costs 11 406,- NOK = 1 861,- USD = 1 202,- GBP = 1 516,- Euro.



    Another question; Will I be able to have two screens connected?

    Moved thread over to Build help.


    *) If you're going to do mostly gaming, drop to the i5 3570K.
    *) Motherboard and RAM is fine.
    *) SSD, either go 120 or drop it for two HDDs in RAID0. Get a Crucial M4 or Samsung 830
    *) HDD and OS is fine
    *) Case and PSU works
    *) The GPU is old tech, so unless you get a good deal, I'd advice against it and opting for a HD7870 or a HD7850 instead.
    ---) As an added information; Anything more expensive than a GTX 460 or a HD6850/HD6870 will do very, very little in wow or blizzard/MMO games.

    Yes, you can fit two monitors to all GPUs.

    Apart from the GTX 570, unless you get a very good deal, I'd opt for the other models, whichever you feel you can fit your budget.
    What games do you want top play, other than Wow?
    All of those will handle Skyrim, BF3, Arkham City et c formidably, and I'm talking at an 1920x1080 resolution.
