I am looking to build a new gaming rig as my old PC as been upgraded to death and so I want to start fresh again.
The PC will be 80% used for Games, 20% used for development work (This also involves running a few VM sessions)
The games I curently play whether good or bad
World Of Warcraft
Guid Wars 2
Star Wars - The old republic
Kingdoms of Amular
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Now my current PC I have to play these games mostlly on low settings which annoys me as I miss allot of the detail in some of these games, my monitor at the moment is a 24" Dell 2407WFPHC Monitor running at 1920 x 1200. I want a rig that can play these games at high end settings and will be able to play new games at high end settings for at least the next year or so. I may upgrade my monitor to either a 32" High def monitor or 2 high def 24" monitors, not sure yet.
I havent built a PC in a few years so I am behind the times with the tech, but I did have a look and thought os something along these lines. As I say I am behind the current tech trend so I may be way of base with the below, so any and all help is appreciated.
