Windows 7: Budget Gaming Suggestion..

12 Jun 2011   #41

7 Ultimate x64

If this is still a budget gaming rig, then you should not worry about hard drives. Games do not use hard drives for anything other than map loading... that's it. When you're in-game blasting Chives away, your hard drive is sitting there idle. It's still spinning, but it's not doing anything game related... so setting up a RAID array is unnecessary. If you have any extra money, you really do want to put it into getting the very best graphics card you can. If you already have the best card, then put your money into the fastest cpu.... extra hard drives are low on the list.

I'm very, very excited about my rig. People have lower power X4's, same GFX, less ram, yet run modern games such as BFBC2 maxed at minimum 30FPS.. PLUS, Overclocking is an option. the HD5830 seems a great, great card, plus has a decent overclocking head room (With minor adjustments, at least 25%+ Core speed).. It's all looking up. :')

EDIT - Hmm. I've been looking at PSU's now, my 650W is definitely powerful, and some half-decent reviews, but, is it worth shelling out 10 more for a weaker, branded PSU that's reliable?

Original -Colors-IT 650W Titan

New Proposed idea - Corsair 500CX Builder Series
