So I am in the process of building a new gaming rig. I have been using PCpartpicker to find all of the components I think will work best for the games I will be playing on it. I currently play WoW and SWTOR. I am looking to spend $1,200.00 or less.
Let me clue you in to my knowledge of computers... I really don't have any. I've read a bunch of forum posts and talked to some people irl that know way more than I do and came up with a few builds on PCpartpicker.
I am really just looking to see if I picked parts that are good/decent enough to play the aforementioned games at high levels. So here is a build I put together:
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($169.99 @ Microcenter)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 76.8 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($23.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Motherboard: MSI Z77A-G43 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($99.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2133 Memory ($49.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($93.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Storage: Crucial M4 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($99.99 @ B&H)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 660 2GB Video Card ($219.99 @ Microcenter)
Case: Rosewill BlackHawk ATX Mid Tower Case ($74.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: CoolMax 600W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($34.99 @ Newegg)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit) ($99.99 @ Newegg)
Keyboard: Logitech G510 Wired Gaming Keyboard ($94.99 @ Amazon)
Please let me know if I should change anything (re: brand, etc.) or if anyone with more knowledge than myself can let me know if what I picked is sufficient for my needs. Thanks in advance.
