I'd like to ask the following questions somewhere on Stack Exchange. Where can I ask this type of question?
I am trying to build a new system for playing MMORPGs at maximum capacity.
I am configuring a brand new system and am spec-ing out the motherboard, CPU, GPU (graphics card), memory, storage (SSD and HDD), and monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
So, can anyone tell me:
What are the operating specs (NOT minimum or recommended requirements)? Meaning, what is the top FPS, Hz, resolution, refresh rate I should look for a good system to have?
Motherboard: best which will support multiple pin sets (i.e., upgradeable) I am leaning towards a ASUS ATX Z-97A
- CPU: Intel or AMD? I am leaning towards a 6th generation Intel Core i7-6700 3.4 GHz processor
- GPU: nVidia or Radeon? I am leaning towards the nVidia GeForce GTX 970 or 980 GPU with 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 on-board memory and SLI for two cards
- Memory? I am leaning towards 16GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM (but have no idea if that's good, better, or best, or if there are other options)
- Storage? I have several USB hard drives for external storage so I'm not sure I really care if the system comes with a 1 or 2TB HDD at 7200rpm, but my main concern is the SSD -- which BRAND is best and what size min is best? 256GB?
- Monitors? I am slightly confused about all the specs on monitors: 60Hz vs 144Hz refresh rate?, response time (GTG) under 5ms?, TN (120-144Hz) or IPS (60Hz) or VA? 1080p vs 1440p?
- Keyboard? I like the RAZER BLACKWIDOW CHROMA or ULTIMATE 2016, the CORSAIR VENGEANCE K70 RGB, and the LOGITECH WIRELESS ILLUMINATED KEYBOARD K800. Other suggestions?
- Mouse? RAZER DEATHADDER or NAGA CHROMA? LOGITECH G502 PROTEUS CORE? MadCatz? RocCat?
