I currently have a laptop which can not play games =(
However I have around $1000 to spend on building a computer.
My dad has a dell optiplex 755 and has recently bought a new one. So I will be getting his.
I know it won't be very good for games either, but at least I will have a computer to upgrade.
I have a monitor coming in the post soon - http://www.amazon.co...04263108&sr=8-1
Full HD 1920 x 1080p
For university I am going to study games development and to process all the kits, and to max out games, I need a good computer.
I am very good at modelling and graphics design but I do not know a lot about inside a computer.
I cant find much information on building computers so I have came here.
I have read about graphics cards and to crossfire two hd radeon 5850s is very good and can 'max' games such as crysis and it is also relativly cheap
But to install a graphics card, i need a motherboard which I do not know anything about.
So can someone please tell me what would be the best motherboard I can buy for around $100 - $250 and is able to crossfire two 5850s?
8gb ram, can anyone recommand me any?
What CPU I should buy?
and what does it mean by cooling graphics cards?
Thanks in advance, I appreciate it and I am learning about inside a computer, so forgive me, we were all like this at one stage.
I would like the 2 5850s so please dont mention alternative graphics cards and I would like to stick with ATI.
