I wanna try my hand at building a computer for the first time. My old computer is really only collecting dust so I want to use my current to replace it and build my own to replace my current. I'm not very experienced in this kind of thing but I've got my base hardware down. I'll be getting an Intel i7-875k Processor along with an Intel DP55KG Motherboard. Where do I go from here and what do you recommend I get?
I'm pretty sure the resolution of the screen I plan to use is 1024x768. I'll be doing a good mix of casual reading and email checking as well as a lot of gaming and possibly making videos of those games. If you've ever played a Valve game, you know the type of games I'll be playing. I want to play on maximum or very close to maximum settings. I also need to know; how would I be able to force anti-aliasing? Does it have anything to do with hardware? And before I forget, my budget is $1300.
WHAT THE HECK... such low resolution -_- EVEN a 5770 would do for that resolution, any valve game at that resolution would easily max out. With a 5770 or the 6850 or a 460 GTX. I mean at that point you really don't need a 860 or 875k at a 1300$ budget, your wasting your money with a bad intel mobo and a chip that really isn't a choice for budget build of 1300$. I suggest going with an i5 750 or i5 760.
