Hey there! I'm looking forward to configuring a gaming PC from geekbox.com. The process is easy but I'm a bit of an amateur when it comes to choosing parts. Obviously the more expensive parts the better, but I just wanna get what is good enough to run FF14 smoothly. I'll post the options in the bottom that I need help with.
-Corsair 650 Watt TX Power Supply
-Intel Core i7-875K Lynnfield 2.93GHz LGA 1156 Quad-Core Unlocked Processor
-8 GB (4x2GB) G.Skill PC3 12800 7-8-7-24
-Nvidia Based EVGA GeForce GTX 580 1536 MB (Fermi)
-Whatever you think you'll need.
-Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Champion Series 7.1 Channel
Network Interface Card: Not necessary. Motherboards come with it.
-Western Digital 240 GB Solid State Drive (ESATA/USB2.0)
-Western Digital 1 TB Hard Drive (ESATA/USB2.0)
Also, are multiple hard drives and and optical drives necessary? Thank you again for your help!
-It's necessary if you want peak gaming performance. You generally don't want your games on the
same drive as all the junk you download/install. It bogs down your gaming and load times. If you
can afford it, you should get a Solid State Drive (SSD). They're the fastest, and you could make
it strictly for system files and games, while another 1 or 2 TB HDD stores the rest of your files. Edited, Jan 25th 2011 5:04pm by SoumaKyou
