Howdy folks! I've pieced together a system I'm planning on building sometime between now and the end of this year. I'll be building two of these, one for myself and one for my wife. We game ~40 hours a week - typical games are LoL, WoW, Sims, Rift, D3, Skyrim, SW:ToR, GW2, etc.
I also record gameplay (FRAPS), and produce videos (Adobe Production Premium CS5.5).
We are hoping these will support maxed out / high settings on games for the next ~3-5 years. Hard drive shortage right now means we'll be using our existing hard drives or something else so we're not paying 4x as much. Budget is not to exceed ~$2,500.
Without further ado:
I've run it by a one other dude, he recommended a GTX 570 instead of the 580 for the cost/performance ratio. He also mentioned a different SSD - maybe even a PCI based one.COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II Advanced Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
