So like my desktop PC hit the ripe old age of 5 years old this year, and I thought it was time for an overhaul.
I set out to build a gaming machine that could handle all my demands and stay under my budget, which I had set at AU$1500.
This is what I ended up with:
PSU Seasonic X Series X650
MOTHERBOARD Gigabyte x58A-UD3R Intel X58
CPU Intel Quad Core i7 950
RAM Patriot DDR3 6GB Tri-Kit
HDD Seagate 1.5TB SATA-300
GFX CARD nVidia GTX 460 1024MB Overclocked Edition
CASE Thermaltake V9 BlacX Edition
So I managed to stay within my budget and am quite happy with the results. After a weekend of installing stuff and putting the whole package together, this is what I ended up with.
I’ll even attach some screenshots for your benefit. FPS rate is in the top left corner.
I have come to realise that none of my games are recent. Perhaps now I will be able to purchase more demanding ones, and post up results of those.
I hope to upgrade individual parts annually!!
