Hi all. I'll start this off by saying...I'm a noob and I'm about to embark on my first ever build. It's going to be a gaming setup and I'm a little unsure about the hardware I've chosen. I have $2000 to spend and would obviously like the best quality and performance for the money. I've been reading tons of forums, reviews, "how to's" and various articles on choosing hardware. But I would like some opinions on the selections I've made. If I'm missing anything or there are better choices as far as quality or performance please let me know. Here's the hardware I picked out..
Any feedback or opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
I have a couple questions. I plan on connecting this PC to a 50" plasma. Will the on-board sound be ok or will I need to add a sound card? And I see a couple people advising AMD processors. With the exception of price, is there a difference between those and intel?
