Some questions before a new build

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I have some extra cash to build a new rig and have some questions. My current PC is not bad but everyone keeps saying I can get more performance out of an intel setup so I wanted to ask is it really worth it? I currently have my AMD phenom ii 965 BE OC to 3.8GHz and it runs FSX with a lot of eye candy and other adds such as the PMDG 747 decent. I average about 16-18FPS on the ground and 28 in the sky with frames locked at 30. Obviously if I switch to Intel I will have to reload everything and start over but I am willing to is it is really worth it. If I do I will sell my current system to recoup some of the cost. So at the moment I have 1200 to spend on a new PC. What would be a good setup to go with. I will be OC the CPU again so that has to be put into consideration. Thanks for all your advise.


Windows 7 64bit, Corsair Vengeance DDR3 Ram 12GB, EVGA GTX760 2GB, Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 motherboard, Intel i5 2500k 3.3GHz (OC 4.4GHz), Corsair H80 liquid cooler, Coolermaster Elite 430 case.

$1225 - Does NOT include: Keyboard, mouse, monitor and OS (assuming you already have those).

 

-Picked good quality parts.

-Don't buy SSD if you don't have enough money; first use all your money on buying a good PC and after that save up and get the SSD, since it's not vital and it will only improve boot/load times.

You may just need to get a CPU and MB mentioned there... try to reuse everything else as much as possible from your current PC. Even the cooler see if you can get an adapter..
