And here ...we....go...(New Gaming Rig)
Ok so ive been at this for 4 months now.
It all started with one game...The Witcher 2...I bought my last PC just in time for The Witcher (Got a laptop afterwards) and now i thought was the right time to get a new one.
So here are the specs that i am looking at.
Processor : i5 2500k
Motherboard: MSI P67A-GD65 or Asus P8P67 PRO (Help me decide)
Memory : 6 GB XMS3 (Bought)
Card : MSI GTX 295 (Bought)
(Alot of people have asked me upgrade it, but at this point the 290's performance is at par of GTX 570, and it will take some time before they can actually utilize Dx11 to its fullest. So i shall wait! )
HDD: 1 TB Segate
500 GB Segate
PSU: CorsairTX 750
Chassis : HAF x or Silverstone RV 02e (Help me decide)
Heres my dilemma, f***ing Hafeez Center!
When i went there a month ago or so, they said the processors have not arrived, and now a week ago they told me that the ASUS motherboards are not here yet.
So...just wanted to share my tale...will be updating the pictures of the things i have already bought soon!

Go for Asus p8p67 pro
and ur GPU is GTX 295... not GTX 290
and for chasis... go for Xigmatek Elysium (www.iamextreme.net)
congratz on the purchase and i suggest you msi as you are purchasing unlocked processor
go for msi board and xigmatek elysium the HUGE Monster
Even if there is a tiniest chance of you changing your mind, I'd recommend you go for a GTX 570. You are better off with a single GPU. Under the hood, GTX 295 is basically 2xGTX275 working in SLI. There is always a possibility of running into compatibility issues with games. Witcher 2 in particular was buggy as well at launch, although I believe the issue is fixed now.
agreed with the card suggestion... ur whole pc is perfect but card selection is not good... i would recommend u to go for GTX 570... and check imx for casing...

Ok heres the deal...

Seriously... that's why the 295 was such an important grab!
Alright. Then you should keep it heh.

I was also going for it but after checking the dimensions it was too much big for my computer table .
