Need Opinions on Computer Build


Recommended Posts

I want a computer that allows me to run any Pinball emulator, add on, etc.  I haven't settled on displays yet, but I'm leaning towards 2 LCDs with a full color DMD, so I need 2 video cards.  Still have to figure out the actual cabinet, knockers/shakers/solenoids/lights, but think this is enough to get started with downloading/testing software.  I'd appreciate folks taking a look and making sure I haven't overlooked anything.

I may not - can I run a 3 monitor setup with 1 GPU?

If you don't have the connections on your GPU, DisplayPort has the option to split/daisy chain. Hdmi can be split as well I believe. I know AMD has eyefinity, might have to look into that too, though nvidea probably works better with the pinball programs due to certain optimizations. 

There's an argument to be made to wait for the new AMD gpu/cpu line, if not to go for AMD than for the price drop on intel/nvidea. Though this is always tricky, as it's a balance between waiting for a new generation and not waiting as you can keep waiting in perpetuity that way. There's always a small window you'd be better of to wait, the rest is just buy what's good now. Also, especially cpu's last longer than they used to.
