My apologies if this is not posted in the right section.
Im upgrading my current PC with the items listed below and before I spend about $800 I thought I'd pose a few questions to your brilliant minds.
My first question is am I getting good bang for my buck? My goal in the beginning of upgrading was to spend around $600-$700 so is there somewhere I could maybe trim some fat?
Secondly, as far as system longevity is concerned is it safe to say I could get a solid 4 years of high graphic gaming out of this?
I appreciate any thoughts or comments.
Upgrades (all prices are through NewEgg):
- ASUS P7P55D-E LX LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
-GIGABYTE GV-N285UD-1GH GeForce GTX 285 1GB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
