(Generated by PCPartPicker 2014-01-19 14:15 EST-0500) My budget is $1400 but I do not see anything that needs upgrading. I could increase my budget to $1450 if there is something big that I should get. Will the intel 5xxx and gtx 8xx be out very soon? Also is this all I need to set up my PC? And does a wifi connector come with that mobo?
