Hey all, I'm pretty excited... Just about to order all the parts to my first build! Before I order, is there anything you would change with about 200-300$ left in the budget? Sadly I already have that processor so can't go for the i5. Anyway, let me know!
I'd keep the SSD; it makes the entire user experience better. A GTX770 can play modern games on Ultra on a single 1080p display.
Edit: Welshstig, he already has the processor.
Add a card reader if you take digital pictures. For the case, check out the Rosewill Blackhawk, the lesser Challenger-U3, or one of the midrange Fractal Designs cases.
Yea I thought the SSD was a good choice too. Although, the 780 gtx is really tempting... How much of a difference would it really make though? & Welshstig, like he said I already purchased the processor.
most of the new motherboards have already a decent sound card. If you have a high end sound system setup, you could add one of course. It is not necessary. If you are interested, check the creative blaster series
