Re: I want to buy a kickass gaming desktop under 2k
My main rig is old but still sufficient.
q9550 (still fast enough)
gtx 285 (still fast enough, but no dx11)
8 GIGS DDRII @ 1066 Corsair Dominator
Corsair HX 650w PSU
-No SSD, just a 7200 rpm SATA II HDD
I have a nice Zalman cooler on the q9550 and have it clocked around 3.8 w/ low temps.
I know eventually I will need to upgrade but waiting to see what prices do w/ this Ivy Bridge release, and this still runs any game I've thrown at it at highest settings.
