So I have this in mind for my first gaming PC build. I was wondering that you all thought of it. I will mainly be using this for gaming and watching videos. I play games like Dota, Bioshock Infinit,e SCII, Dragon age Borderlands and Mass Effect. I want something that will last a while without much upgrading. As for games on the horizon I am looking forward too Titanfall and Dragon age are the main pones right now. Right now this PC is at about $1200 and thats pretty much the top of my budget, with a little wiggle room. But the less the better.
I'd redistribute the 1200 a little differently, honestly. That's a great Psu, but it's too much money for that build, for what you are getting. I'd also skip the SSD for now, to get better components right now, or I'd drop the Cpu cooler and pick up the "k" Cpu and buy a cooler later. Here:
The K Cpu is nice to have, or you could get an h87 motherboard and whatever reasonably priced Cpu there is, like the 4570 for 195. In a couple of years, I'm willing to bet that you'd spent just a little more money for the chance to overclock that cpu though. Also, I fit a 770 into the budget which will provide better performance than the 760. Skipped out on the case though, because it was 130 dollars. Still got a white, good quality case however.
It is if you want a smaller system based on a smaller motherboard, do you have a case or one in mind? And I would still say the cooler isn't necessary as the stock one will do fine but it's not an expensive luxury if you really want it.
I was thinking this Corsair 500R White ATX Mid Tower Case and I forgot to remove the after market cooler. But I am open to suggestions for cases. I must admit I am a sucker for a cool case lol. I would prefer a mid tower.
Yeah I know nothing about mobo so I just picked one and did notice it was a micro. Any suggestions then because I don't really know anything about them. Also I don't NEED 3Tb but I sure do want it. lol
I don't know a good H77 mobo somebody else will have to help you there. I would just start with reviews. While I wouldn't trust the newegg reviews entirely it may be a good place to start. Go into mobos and select H77 only then sort by highest rated
