So hello guys after a year or two of inactivity. I've been out for a long time.
A bit of a resumee.. I hope my Signature is stil intact but in case it's not i'll describe my current build (bought in 2010 and still gaming perfectly).
Processor: I7 950 3.2ghz
Memory; Patriot 3x2gb 1600mhz
Monitor: 20" samsung monitor
HDD: 1tb WD
Watercooling: H60 Watercooling
Case: Thermaltake v9 Black Case
PSU; Thermaltake 750w
GPU: Originally was a EVGA 460gtz but I bought from a friend a Zotac 760 gtx 4gb which I believe is dead or faulty (happened 2 days ago). This forces me to update ALL MY SYSTEM.
I will play on 1920x1080 Max (once I get a new Monitor, current one supports 1600x900).
I will keep the Case, PSU, Watercooling, HDD, and Monitor (for now)
I need (can't decide:
AMD (Generally cheapier than Intel but regarding performance is lower so..
INTEL (I was thinking in i7 7700k 4.2ghz or 8700 3.2ghz.
a) what is the deal with the K on intels? I do not plan on overclocking. Never did, never will.
b) Hhere is a comparisson and the 8700 is less power consuming, right? Cooler also. I don't know why would I need something like 4.2ghz looks too extreme
Motherboard.. Been out of hardware industry for a long time.. so I don't have ANY idea what to look for. For sure I do not want a GAMING Motherboard with lights and fancy expensive things. I want a solid motherboard with 1x PCI Express ( I don't think I will add 2 cards never). USB 3.0 (all mobos have) and 4 DIM Slot could be better than 2.
GPU: I'm pretty sure I will still choose Nvidia 1060gtx 6gb (probably the Gigabyte). Never bought AMD so It might be good but I trust on nvidia.. except for my shitty Zotac... (we can discuss about it later)
Memory: 2x8gb 2400mhz (no more Mhz or Size) That is plenty enough for me. I saw a Corsair for a decent Price.
