Hi - I decided to jump on the DIY bandwagon for a gaming project, mostly solely to play Elite Dangerous!
Soo - I've cobbled together this built around the gfx card really, on the basis that I want something fairly robust that will stand up to ED and other demanding games for a few years.. also, it would be great to pickup an occulus when it comes along, so wanted something up to the task..
I've tried to be frugal in some areas, but are they the right ones? The mobo seems a little cheap for example.. and that cpu cooler, not sure there... that said, I'd rather spend money where it counts now than have to upgrade in no time or make do with something underperforming for the sake of a few quid.. Also, I want a nice quiet and cool rig..
As to if it all "goes" together, the compatibility checker is some comfort, but it would great to get some feedback from the experts as to any areas where I've gone over/underboard. The site is a fantastic resource by the way, so thanks for the help provided already!
