I'm interested in building a gaming computer that utilizes the Intel i7 core technology.
Quick background bio: I'm an avid gamer and I am fascinated by technology. However, iv never been able to fully utilize any games that has come out the past 3 years. Iv been stuck sticking with medium settings on most games lest I want severe lag and choppy graphics. Even under certain games, all low settings is unplayable (I'm looking at you Empire:Total War.)
My Goal: To make a reasonable affordable Desktop gaming computer that utilizes the i7 core technology and can play Crysis on High(est). On a side note, i would like to make it upgradeable and last for at least two years.
Here's the build so far:
