I am planning to build my first gaming PC and need to make sure that all of these parts will work well together before I order, that I'm not missing anything, and if anybody has any extra knowledge for a building newbie.
I'm quite nervous about this. If you have any suggestions on parts that will save money but not reduce my performance to much I'm all ears. My friend tells me that I should get a full tower case instead of mid but I'm not to sure especially with the price difference in them. I plan to play games such as Demons Forge, Rift, Dungeon Siege 3, Dragon Age 2. and would love to do so with pushing the settings max or close to it. Thank you very much for your time.
Au_equus does a good job of bring up some combos that Newegg has to offer. The only real problem with that bundle is the power supply which is rated very poorly. The Intel® Core™ i5-2500K and the Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 give you a great basis for the start of an outstanding gaming system. With a good video card you can be set.
