Thank you Jhariya, thats around the amount I could spend on and it looks really good. is the system good enough to play and can upgrade in the future?
I think it will be a good system for the game and could last for a while. The AM3 socket motherboard should be compatible with AMD's new 6-core CPU's (if not, have the bios reflashed to a newer version should you decide to upgrade).
If I remember correctly, this board will not support crossfire. I *think* that if you went with that setup but upgraded the processor to a Phenom II X4 955 BE processor you would be very happy with the results. I literally just built one the other day using these specs:
CoolerMaster HAF 922 Case
ECS Black Series A790GXM-AD3 Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition CPU 3.2ghz
4GB Gskill DDR3 1333mgz Ram
A-data 32GB SSD
Seagate 7200rpm 1TB HDD
Asus Blue Ray drive
Asus CD/DVD Burner
Gigabyte HD 5830 GPU
OCZ Fatal1ty 550 watt PSU
23" Acer Wide-screen LCD monitor
Wireless mouse and keyboard
It cost him $1200 in parts, but he was VERY happy with the performance compared to his old machine (an OEM, possibly Dell). After I benchtested his machine to ensure everything was fuctioning as it should he asked me to install and run the FF benchmark. With his machine, all stock settings, we scored roughly 4400 on low and 3500 on high.
I just purchased a MSI Hawk HD 5770 video card for myself and my setup is similar to the customer I referenced above, with the exception of a complete system OC on mine. I scored a touch over 4600 on low.
As far as liquid cooling goes, I can't really comment because I have never experimented with it. But from what I have read, you can really lower the temp. of your components as opposed to fans. My pc has a total of 9 fans installed. I idle at 29* C and peak at 56* C under 100% load. If I had liquid, I would guess my temp's would be roughly 5* cooler, but thats a guess :)
