Also I some how convinced my wife that this is the most logical as I will not be buying a new computer every year.
I'll be showing you the parts I've picked out, what I was hopping for everyone here is to just let me know if the stuff works well together I've already figured out if its compatible or not. Like my cpu I picked mainly for cost as I'm at the top end of my budget. Anyway let me start
Corsair 400R mid tower http://www.tigerdire...60&sku=C13-6400
Sabertooth 990FX MB http://www.tigerdire...6&sku=A455-3019
FX-8150 CPU http://www.tigerdire...91&sku=A79-8150
XFX 7950 VC http://www.tigerdire...5&sku=P450-7953
Corsair Vengance 16GB (4x4GB) http://www.tigerdire...17&sku=C13-5724
OCZ Vertex 3 240GB SSD http://www.tigerdire...9&sku=O261-6381
500GB Seagate Momentus XT HDD/SSD http://www.tigerdire...&sku=TMD-500AS4
Corsair TX650 PSU http://www.tigerdire...36&sku=C13-2800
Lite-On Blu,DVD,CD http://www.tigerdire...ku=L12-1374 OEM
I would like to know. Is there a difference for the RAM 4 cards Vs. 2. I originally had the 16GB 2x8GB version but it was about 50 bucks more so I went cheaper. I had a bigger power supply but went cheaper, can I go cheaper or smaller on that? Also the mother board can I switch that out for something as well? The SSD is the cheapest I've found but heard bad things about OCZ recently. I'm aware that the AMD 8150 is not as powerful as the I7 for independent gaming and I know I'm not going to be running a bunch of virtual machines seeing as I have no clue what they are. If you find an I7 for under 250 I guess let me know.I also wouldn't mind later on getting another graphics card for crossfire. ( it seems simple enough). And do I need an audio card?
Thanks for your time and stopping by to help me out anything would be a great help.
