So please have a look at my parts lists and let me know your thoughts... I'd love to bring the price down a bit more.
Thanks very much in advance. This site has been so very helpful as I try to put together a new build for my wife. I've not built a system since the one I'm using today (I'm not a gamer). It's a:
Asus P8Z68-V LX Intel Core i5-2500K @ 3.30GHz Sandy Bridge RAM = Kingston 4x2GB DDR3 SDRAM PC3-12800 Running on-board video Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000
She is crazy into Overwatch and her current machine is a Lenovo Y70-70 Touch. It has serious heat management issues and no matter what I do it lags like mad and is sometimes almost unplayable despite the high end spec's. Anyway this build is a replacement for that.
While I have your attention... how would you upgrade the i5 machine. I salvaged a GTX 9800+ and after moving my drives around put it in and got it running (despite only finding 1 power plug available on my OCZ StealthXstream 600W PSU).
Thanks very much
