So I just had a topic on SSD, but I decided to just create a new one since it'll be a new subject. I've been thinking of upgrading parts of my PC recently and it started with just a SSD, then it became I might need new RAM, then I realized my GPU is starting to get old... So.... how about I just build a new PC. My PC will be used for gaming, and photo editing. I just need the tower. I have a OS, monitor, keyboard/mouse. So far this is what I was thinking.
PSU: No idea, but it MUST be dual voltage (ex 110v-240v) because I'll be living overseas for quite some time)
RAM: Don't matter
CPU: Prefer Intel since that is what I always had in the past.
GPU: I prefer NVIDIA. I see the EVGA 770 right now has 3 free games with it. that would be pretty cool
Case: I have a laptop so mobility isn't that big of an issue. I can do a full size. Currently I have the HAF 922 and I like that. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147053 possibly? Only $110
CPU Cooler: I don't plan on overclocking my CPU ever, so if you feel I don't need a cooler then I'll stick with the stock one. I will not overclock my CPU.
Hard-drive: I added up how much room I use on my current PC and I saw it's at like 220GB so I think a 500GB SSD is good. I was thinking the Samsung 840 Evo 500GB
Optical: Don't matter to me.
My budget is probably $1,500 total. What kind of setup could I get with that you all think? --- | HAF 922 | i7 930 - 2.8GHz | EVGA 480 GTX | 6G DDR3 1600 | P6X58D Premium | ABS Dark Berret 850W | Corsair H70 | 1TB WD Caviar Black |

Overseas? Don't build a PC.. you got things to do. --- The PC gaming Master Race will never die out. We will continue to train, raise, and breed Master Race. http://www.youtube.com/user/PCGamingMasterRace87/videos
Haha I appreciate the concern. I'm going to England for 2 years for work. It's nothing major and not a big deal. I'll still be working a normal schedule over there. It's just I have a lot of vacation time with my current work and it transfers over to my new job in England, so I'll be taking a lot of days off to travel Europe. Not sure if you got me confused with going to Afghanistan or something like that. --- | HAF 922 | i7 930 - 2.8GHz | EVGA 480 GTX | 6G DDR3 1600 | P6X58D Premium | ABS Dark Berret 850W | Corsair H70 | 1TB WD Caviar Black |
Only part I'm still iffy on is the Power Supply. What is your opinion on all this? --- | HAF 922 | i7 930 - 2.8GHz | EVGA 480 GTX | 6G DDR3 1600 | P6X58D Premium | ABS Dark Berret 850W | Corsair H70 | 1TB WD Caviar Black |
