So, I've taken the plunge!
After a fairly lack-lustre spec reveal from both Sony & MS with the PS4 and Xbox One, I have started buying bits for my rig! :)
After seeing what is available on Steam and the way the mod community works, it was a 'no brainer' really. The system will mainly go in my front room and use Steam Big Window mode, although I hope to get Occulus Rift down the line.
Specs so far:
Samsung DVD RW
Samsung 250gb Solid State drive (To boot windows etc...)
1TB WEstern Digital HD
16gb Corsair DDR3
EVGA GTX 780, 3GB DDR5
Asus Z77 Sabertooth Mother board
Basically, it should kick the living fuck out of anything for quite some time.
I was going to go with the GTX680, but the 780 runs the same as the Titan in a lot of tests and is almost half the price.
I already have most of the parts, just waiting to buy the GPU next month but have a few questions.
1. What PSU would be good for this set up? I don't want a shit one, but don't want to spend over the odds as the other stuff has cost a fair whack, any suggestions?
2. Any software I should go for? This is purely a gaming rig, but is there anything that will enhance speed or ease of use?
3. Shall I go Windows 8 or Windows 7?
Anyway, I'll try and keep this updated once I get the build going and tell you all how I got on!
Any tips on PC games to try would also be helpful, I love all genres generally! :)
