Hello everyone! This is my first post, and I hope I'm posting in the right area for this sort of question..
I am making a computer from scratch for the first time. I have been researching and formulating an idea for this gaming computer, and was wondering if I was going along the right path for it. I want to see how far $500 can get me, and I have already spent $115 for the i5-2500k Sandy Bridge CPU, a fan, and a cpu cooler. So I have $385 to spend on the rest. This is what I have brainstormed so far.
Mobo: ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - $74.99
Graphics Card: PowerColor AX7850 1GBD5-DH Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - $149.99
