Need help deciding new rig!


Recommended Posts

Hey all, I weren't sure where this was supposed to go but here it goes:

I built my last PC with the aid of my brother, but now hes gone off to university and I want to build one (for the experience and since I need a new gaming rig). I sold my old PC to my cousin for relativily cheap.


Anyway I am looking to make a new gaming rig, one thats good enough to last for a good 2+ years.


Im a bit unsure about as to wether I want to overclock it (What if I do something wrong? Mess up the processor... No warranty eh?).


But otherwise, I wish to have a DFI motherboard (I had one for my last PC, 100% satisfyed).


I have a £500-£600/$900 - $1100 budget (Not including monitor).


Any advice as to what to get would be nice... :)

Its mainly due to all the new processor line-ups comming out I am confused as to what to get.

Also I want a 5.1 or better sound system, I want to upgrade gaming experience to

a new level :) So advice here would be nice ;)
