Bout that time

Post by WeaponX »

To build a new gaming rig. Any recommendations? Quad core vs. 8 Core, etc.

I'm doing tons of research but haven't built a machine in a few years. Any advice i'll weigh in! Graphics cards, mobo's, anything.

I've always gone AMD but seems like September before Bulldozer hits :(

What are you currently running? :D
And what games do you plan on playing? (latest & greatest at max settings?)
oh, and $ range :)

I don't really know anything about current hardware. Just make sure you are running a solid state drive for your OS load (if you aren't already).

Massive, but very expensive by the gig, which is why you just run your OS from it and gt a small one.
