Quote from: Ryex on June 11, 2015, 04:52:06 pmI updated my post with stuff about your other parts. Take a look. DX12 will be out with Windows 10. but if your building a rig like this you should consider future performance, windows 10 will be out in 6ish months and DX12 games 2-3 months after that so...

Cause you don't need to their good, real good. You might want to shop around on the 290x for a better price. That saphire one is on the upper end. $360 would be closer to its true value.

If you want it for multimedia and gaming only, one big monitor would be a better choice. And you can always buy second one later if you change your mind.- CPU: Ryex already said it. AMD will give you cheaper stuff, but if you want cutting edge, Intel is the way to go. But unless you need it for gaming or something other CPU-intensive (game development or compiling code), you might want to consider an AMD after all. Though, if you are going to run a virtual machine, Intel is far better at that.- GPU: What Ryex said. AMD are the better choice, NVidia is generally overpriced. Especially with DX12 (and Mantle!), AMD will take over the market. They already power both Xbox One and the PS4. Think about that. But SLI and Crossfire aren't worth it. You'll pay double, but the performance will be increased maybe 40%. I've read an article about that stuff. I can't remember where, but there's tons of other problems as well with SLI/Crossfire.- HDD/SSD: While an SSD will speed up your booting time insanely, don't get it if you just want it for booting. Or get a small one like 128 GB. e.g. At work I have my OS on a 128 GB together with our project files so compilation is faster and VS boots up much faster than on my home laptop. It's really worth it in this case. I'm also planning to get a 500 GB SSD for my home laptop. I'll put the OS on it together with my projects and my VM (booting it up and shutting it down is often a hassle, especially suspending it since it has to dump all 4 GB of RAM onto the HDD and renders my laptop almost unusable for at least 20 minutes).
Quotei had two old amd gpus in crossfire and if i remember correctly i had about 40% increase in performance
QuoteWhat do you do? Also buy the GFX 1900 for 1'500 Buckazoids?No! You go buy yet another GFX 700, which now is down to 300 Buckazoids and SLIFire it with your existing card, geting up to 40% more FPS out of your system.
