Turns out it's about a months pay
But it would be SOOOOOO GOOOOD!
And actually capable of playing LOTRO instead of LAGTRO
Note: This is compiled from one site's products and prices, so some parts i may be able to get cheaper elsewhere, and I may not have fully read the smallprint in each case. Not Linking specific products because these are likely to change, but I can link them if you want them.
- Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (Up Yours, Win8!)
- MSI Thunderbolt Motherboard (It's shiny blue and had a cool name)
- Intel I5 3570K 3.4Ghz Quad-core Processor (Seems to be ones of the best I5's)
- Plextor 256GB SSD (For Windows and LAGTRO)
- Seagate 3TB HD [x5] (One for games, one for Media, 3 for serious YouTubing!)
- NVidia GTX 660 MSI (The 660 range was the biggest number without orbital price costs.)
- 32GB Corsair DDR3 1600Mhz RAM - (THIRTY TWO! Because I Can! Because its the RAM LOTRO needs!)
- Corsair 750W Modular Power Unit (I'm pretty sure this is overkill, and a 650w or possibly even a 550w would still be plenty, but I'm just window shopping at this point )
- Some DVD Drives (Havent explicitly looked at these yet, but let's call it two at £20 each, though 4 is tempting if i can get the sockets to fit them.
- Coolermaster nVidia case (This seems to be the sequel to my current PC's case but tbh, I prefer my current one. Tempted to strip it out, give it a good clean, and re-use it.)
Additional fans, cables, screws and pimping not included.
So yeah. It's expensive. But GOD DAMN, it would be sweet.
Will be heading into new territory with brands though. My last two PC's I built myself were built around XFX GeForce cards and MoBo's, and I've always loved those guys, but sadly they don't do the boards anymore. Beyond knowing that MSI is one of the larger parts brands, i really don't know much about them or their tech, but the reviews for these specific items sound good, and if they pair together as well as my XFX Gfx Cards and mobo's have, I'll be more than happy.
Don't think I've really come across Plextor before either, but the product seems well rated. Corsair and Seagate are of course tried and tested brands.
Anyone else have any input on these brands/parts?
