Welcome to the Max Pc Forum, however you posted this question in the wrong forum for a good answer.

Ask a Moderator to move you to this forum:

viewforum.php?f=35

To answer part of your question, you are using the wrong type of video card. The card you picked is for Auto-Cad type programs not games.

The processor you picked is whimpy and will choke running tomorrows games.

If you want to run 8 gigs of ram you need Win7 64bit.

I'm confused, do you wish to build a desktop PC or purchase a laptop? You said you wish to build a desktop but list laptop parts. :?:

Since you say that money is no problem, and you want a gaming machine, and you want it to run anything without issues for at least several years, then you should be thinking along these lines.

1) A full size case, with plenty of ventilation, and the option for water cooling if you want it, like the HAF 932 series.

2) A hearty CPU like the i7 3820, or the i7 3930k

3) Memory is very inexpensive now, you can grab 16GB of high quality memory for $100.00

4) First class cooling like the Noctua D-14, or the ThermalRight Silver Arrow SB-E, or the Corsair H100

5) A quality motherboard from Asus, or Gigabyte

6) A high quality power supply from Corsair, Antec, or Silverstone

7) A pair of Nvidea GTX 680 cards, or comparable.

Now your talking about a high quality gaming system.

My idea for system building is build a system that runs all the apps and games of today. You don't know what the requirements of tomorrows games will be, so build for today only and not tomorrow. There is no way to "future-proof" a gaming machine. For instance my latest build was built when the 8150 8-core hit the market:

Win 7 64 bit

Asus Sabertooth motherboard

8150 cpu

8 gigs of Corsair ram

Velociraptor hard drive 300 gig. (from old gaming machine)

Two XFX 6970 video cards in Crossfire

1000 watt Antec power supply (from old gaming machine)

The above setup runs all of todays games as smooth as butter and this includes BF3, Skyrim, Witcher 2, Mass Effect 3, all Steam games, all Origin games that I own and the machine didn't cost me an arm and a leg. In my opinion you buy top of the line equipment for ego satisfaction and bragging rites only and is a waste of money. I rather put my money in new games than overbuild a machine.....this is just my humble opinion though....

Well, Crossfire or SLI should be held back until you know the resolution the GPU needs to pump out. The GTX 760 or HD 7870 are no slouch as a single card solution.

But yes, it's still a help me build thread and feel it's a laptop.
