CPU : i7 950
Motherboard : X58A-GD65
I have the CPU oveclocked at the moment to 3.8 and ran Prime95 throughout the night with no issue.
My goal is to buy a good, power supply, graphics card, 128 GB SSD and 12GB of ram and turn it into a gaming machine for my TV upstairs. This is just part 1 of my bigger plan. In the future I plan on purchasing a 1080P Projector. This will be the machine for the PC gaming side of things.
So what do you guys have for recommendations. I'm thinking about spending $250 - $300. Can i get something that good for that much? Do you think the OC'ed 950 would be any sort of bottleneck?
Thank you everyone for your recommendations.
