So my rig that I built in 2008 just crashed the other day. Rather than trying to figure out which part or parts are failing, I've decided to just build a new rig (carrying over only a few parts from the old rig). Here are the parts I'm looking into buying:
And that should about do it. I'm carrying over my hard drives, disk drive, monitor, keyboard, and mouse over from my old computer. I'm a grad student, so I will be buying Windows separately. Sound card will be coming down the road... Let's try to keep these under $1,000... preferrably less. I play most Blizzard games, will be playing a few new games, but don't need to max the new Crysis or anything. I mostly would just like it future proof, be able to play on 1080p, etc. I'm very out of the loop on new parts, so any help is appreciated. Also, I'm shooting for an Intel CPU and an nVidia GPU. I've always come to this site for help before, so help a fellow nerd out again! Thanks in advance.
Here are the parts that I've decided on so far. Thanks all for your help!
Okay, here is what I have so far:
i5 3750K - $230
ASRock Z77 - $135
EVGA GTX 670 FTW - $370
NZXT Phantom - $100
Cooler Master CPU Cooler - $33
Corsair Vengeance 8GB - $53
Corsair 650W Gold - $100
Total is about $1,019 (I think I did my math right...)
