I have some extra cash and I need to upgrade my system - currently i am using (2) GTX 260s in SLi, with a Q9550 and 8gb ram - basically this was nice back in the day but now its just a slow pig when gaming with skyrim, BF3, COD, and yeah Eve online and wow... don't mock i know i know, kid games. But hey I enjoy them.. I play other games but these i mention are the most graphic intense.
So please - give me your ideas - I want to build a M-ATX this go around-
I looked at the As rock extreme 4-m but never used there boards before. So Im kinda scared about it.
My budget is around 2000 - to 2500 for the mobo, CPU, GPUs, memory, and PSU. i have case.
ASUS Maximus V Gene Micro ATX Intel Motherboard <--- sub out a Asrock Extream 4-M?????
Corsair Neutron Series CSSD-N120GB3-BK 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory
CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX850 (CMPSU-850AX) 850W Power Supply
CORSAIR H100 (CWCH100) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit
Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 Quad-Core Desktop Processor <-- go Ivy bridge?
(2) EVGA SuperClocked+ GeForce GTX 660 Ti 03G-P4-3663-KR Video Card <-- Sub out for 2 670, or 680s?
Now the Question I have is - will this set up be bottle necked at the Cpu because of the SLi Gpus? or memory, I haven' t been around much last 2 to 3 years.
I want a system that will be great for playing these games my moniter supports 2560 x 1440 -
so if any of this makes complete non - sense please help a fellow enthusiast with my new build.
