Alright, as the title says I have never built one before but I'm going to read/watch a few guides and maybe get a friend to come over so I can do it myself next time I need to. I don't know that much about hardware or anything so please look over my items.

Right now I have a Dell 2400 with a extra 512ram card and some old nvidia 5000 series card so big big upgrade this time around. I was expecting to just use my dvd and cd drive in my system right now, along with my speakers since I NEVER use them and just 99.9% of the time use a headset. I thought about getting a new keyboard and mouse, but he mouse I have right now is pretty nice and I haven't looked too much into keyboards but I could still use the one I have for a while if needed.

Hope to hear from everyone soon :)  Thanks

I dont know if this helps but
try to stay away from ECS
I heard they arent that great.
Try Asus or gigabyte for a mobo

OH and I was thinking if the hd 5750 card would be better cause its supports dx11? I'm making a gaming rig so I want to build a good base computer to play the latest games on high or max with good fps, but also to last me. I would like to just keep upgrading instead of having to buy a whole new computer in a few years.

Try getting a 5770 in there, its 50% better for only a little more $$

unless you've got a thing for nvidia gpus, usually ati have better performance per value and it is my recommendation to use a ati gpu on a ati mb and cpu for better parts integration and compatability

5770 is on edge with 4870 and gtx 260 ( or slightliy slower ) so it is the best.
