thx jrm20 i guess u sell all these things too if im not mistaking ... so i wanna ask u something can u list me all the components i need to build the best gaming pc ever it doesnt matter how much it will sum i just need u to tell me all u know about building the best gaming pc ever please.
Keep in mind that it has to remain for years u know what im saying i wont have to buy another computer or rebuild my computer the next year or in 2 years something i can use for a long time as well.
Thx man! i appreciated this.
I do build pc's for friends/coworkers and people but I buy all parts from newegg then build the pc around the customers budget and charge about $250 and thats it. The customer pays for the parts up front usually then I only charge up to $250 for putting it together and for my time. In my earlier days I hardly charged anything.
Well the thing is it wont be the best gaming pc ever and it won't last for years as new series of video cards come out at least every 6 months and new processors 6 months to a year. Technology is moving so fast in today's society.
What I posted on the last post will be a very good high end build but no computer can last for years as I stated above. A pc with those specs above should last a good 1.5-2years no problems then you might decide on upgrading just the Video card in a year or 2.
Ya you can get a very very high end pc if you have the cash to spill out.
I am more of the best price / performance ratio on High end parts but if you want the best cpu it is the Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition 965 Nehalem 3.2GHz at $1,019.99 just for the cpu LOL.
Now would I personally buy that, no way. The next step below that one is the Intel Core i7 940 Nehalem 2.93GHz for $564.99 as that price is more reasonable. You never need to get the highest priced cpu as you are wasting your money dishing out $1000+ on just 1 part and in a few months to 6 months it will be considered outdated because newer cpu's or architectures will be out.. Even the cheapest Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem 2.66GHz at $294.99 is a fast chip as you can overclock any of these and get it past the $1000 cpu and save a lot of cash.
Id go for the core i7 940 or the core i7 920 as you can overclock any of these chips pretty easy if you have some knowledge.
With the money you saved on that you can get 2 gtx 295 video cards and run it in sli as that would be a killer setup and IMO all you would need for 2 years lol. 2 years is a long time for a gaming pc as more and more games require faster and faster video cards here lately.
Use this advice and the mobo, ram, hd as I posted in earlier posts and you will have a [email protected]
Well I gave you the price/ performance speech but if you have a hefty budget and you will take nothing less than the BEST I would change to the $1000 cpu and 3 gtx 295 video cards in tri sli. Do you need it, no way but hey it is up to you I gave you my opinion as even the cheapest core I7 can be overclocked past the $1000 cpu and you just saved $700..
What is your budget anyway?
