I've joined Game Debate now and hope to make new gamer friends
I'm Vishnu from India and I'm planning to buy a desktop for playing Racing games.
I will be playing only car games (all sorts), I never have/will play those shooting games like BF3 or Wow (sorry).
I will buy a LOGITECH G27 + PLAYSEAT EVOLUTION very soon
I heard today's PC offers better graphics than PS3 or Xbox. So decided to buy a PC.
I'm planning on buying DELL U2412M as a 24-INCH MONITOR for ~350$ (expensive but I guess its worth it
, since it has IPS and height adjustable stand and the screen can be rotated to landscape/portrait).
Now I need to buy a CPU to go along with the monitor.
=> I want to play all Car racing games with maximum graphics that the game offers untill PS4 releases (if it beats my PC in graphic department).
=> I want my CPU also to support atleast 3 monitors to support my racing setup easily.
MY CONFIGURATION :
I made some research and have come up with a configuration, correct me wherever I'm wrong.
=> PROCESSOR : Intel i-5 . ( I see there are ~5 models, Which I do I choose ?? )
=> RAM : 8GB ( Is 2x4 GB better than 1X8 GB ??)
=> GRAPHIC CARD : Nvidia GTX 560 Ti 1GB DDR5 (Again is the lower model in this enough? )
=> HDD : 1TB @ 7200 Rpm ( Do I really need an expensive SSD along with this?? )
=> MOTHER BOARD : I really have no idea. I want it to support 16GB RAM, USB 3.0 and should support the above components perfectly.
=> CABINET : I want it to have USB 3.0 ports , not interested in looks/lightning .
=> POWER SUPPLY : What do I buy? How many W?
+ Add any DVD drive to insert games CDs + Decent Keyboard + other components needed if I missed anything out.
=> I have already bought a Razer Death Adder Black editon as mouse. (Even though I don't play shooting games, my friend forced me into it
== I want this configuration to be able 2 run all racing games in the next 1-2 years @ the maximum settings ==
PS: I don't want to spend too much on some extreme gaming rig bcos I won't play BF3 with ultra turned on (Tbh I don't even know what that means
My budget <1000$ for CPU , 900-1000$ is enough I guess, can spend 100$ more if its really needed.
Thanks in advance
