Hey all, I am new to these forums, computer building, and many other technical things, LOL. I want to put together a good system that will run the following games: World of Tanks, War Thunder, & Armored Warfare and any other War Gaming Title, for starters. I am AMD fan and prefer to stay with this system, if at all possible. I am looking at a $700 to $800 budget but the cheaper the better and I can even go to around $1,000 if it requires it. I don't have a parts list picked out but here are a few of my own thoughts. Please tell me how off base I may be, if needed:
1) A good AMD CPU the runs at 3.5 gigs and up but can be over clocked to around 4.0 or so. Over clocking will be an option but not necessary. 2) Around 12 to 16 gigs of DDR3 memory. Is it best to go with heat sinks or not? Over clocking will be an option but not necessary. 3) A good CPU cooler, preferably an air cooled unit like the Cooler Master EVO 212 or the Zalman unit that is similar. Any good cooler would be looked at, not just those two. 4) a 2 to 4 gig AMD graphics card. Crossfire/SLI is not necessary but would entertain it if it is best. 5) A good Mother board that will run Crossfire/SLI if needed. 6) An adequate 80 + Bronze cert power supply around 500 to 1K wattage. 7) 1TB hard drive 8) A solid state drive also 9) Any other item I have over looked.
