I will be buying parts as soon as I have enough money, whenever that be. Don't know how much price will change, but hopefully not up. This computer will be used for the next year of high school and hopefully in college for gaming and "schoolwork" (to persuade my parents(: .) It is my first build and my official switch from console (360=garbage) to pc. I already enjoy this new community and all the help I have been getting on here and forums.
Planning to play titanfall, dayz, battlefield, and minecraft all on a 1080p monitor. What I know of from research, is that the 760 should play all fine on ultra or high. I chose the 990fx mobo to eventually upgrade and mayber sli and prob going to need to get new psu.
Pretty proud of myself, my total cost originally was at $970, and doing some more research and decisions brought me down to about $840.
I need some voices and opinions on anything I should change or things I should consider. Every persons thoughts are welcome :)
