I havent even hardly looked at hardware in over a year and I just know from intels roadmap sandy bridge was due.
I have a 50I 00 series amd card im upgrading to the new flagship. XFX Double D FX-797A-TDBC Radeon HD 7970 Black Edition 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
its under warranty and acting up bad so I am going to try to get that one.
for cpu I was looking at an I7 in the $300 range but im not sure which. It wont be for about 4 weeks so is anything newer due out?
motherboard idk i like gigabyte but I dont know what cpu socket to get. Id rather get one that is good for a bit in the future if possible.
for memory idk because again I dont know how many slots would be here but I want this to be a good amount since memory is so cheap.
I dont need other components just this. I dont want a $300 motherboard. just enough slots to get a good amount of memory and it will have 2 SSDs and an audio card.
