1st Build

#1SteaminWilly13Posted 9/16/2013 8:46:35 PM
I've been wanting to build a nice PC for a while now, and I finally have enough $$$$ to do it.

-ASUS Sabertooth Z77
-MSI GTX 660 TI
-Corsair 850W
-Intel Core i7 3770K 3.5G 8M ivy
-8Gx2 GSkill Ripjaws 16GXM
-256 GB SATA 6GBs SSD
-Rosewill ATX Blackhawk
-Win8

Plugged everything up and it worked first try somehow...all of my games look great on it (StarCraft II, Diablo 3, Metro2033/Last Light, Tomb Raider, Civ 5, Total War). I'm guessing the first thing I'd eventually need to consider upgrading would be the video card? Completely new to WIn8 also, and I must say, it's not near as bad as I thought it was going to be.

I'd say either the video card or adding a regular hard drive would be the first upgrade.

Yeah that video card's going to need an upgrade really soon if you like using AA.

Why did you get an 850W PSU?

I have an external 1TB hard drive. Stick with NVIDIA drivers?

Don't get the Sabertooth, its only for people who prove worthy. If you don't prove your are worth it the motherboard won't work as it should.

How much are you willing to spend on a new video card? Knowing that can help us narrow down your best options.
