Hello everyone! I need your advice or opinions, it would be greatly appreciated. I am putting together a gaming pc for my husband, and since this is my first time part-picking for a pc I would really be grateful for the help. Just a tidbit of information first (you don't have to read it, but I'd like to share). My husband is a very hard-working man, being in the military, and everyday he comes home tired and wants to relax. Sadly his current rig (Alienware) is years old, and needs a very nice upgrade. He's running a dual-core cpu and wants to run Dragon Age: Inquisition, he's certainly going to need an upgrade! (I mean my laptop outruns his tower.. that's so sad (especially because it's not a gaming laptop))
UPDATE Might switch out for a S340, and a kraken x61
I do plan to SLI this build later down the road, so water cooling is a must! Plus all that OCing' you know. Here's my cooling plan for the build: H440 Using the rear as exhaust and the front as intake. The H105 will be pull.
My budget has a bit of leeway: $1300 (preferred) or $1400 (a can-do)
Any help at all is appreciated.
