So I'm looking at building a new computer and haven't done so before so I was hoping to get a critique of the system that I'm looking at purchasing in the next 2-3 months. Just a little background only looking to spend around 500-600 dollars after rebates (this is including an operating system, windows 7 home premium), and I already have optical drives, hard drives, monitor, speakers, keyboard, etc. So anyways, my system as it is now:
That's pretty decent for the budget. If you look for combo deals, you can sometimes get an AMD quad core and motherboard for about the same price as that triple-core and motherboard you picked. But not always.
I agree with going for a DX11 card with any new mid- to high-end build these days. 5770 would be preferable to the 5750 if you can afford the extra $20 or so.
