  1. Also I would mostly be playing Starcraft and Photo editing on this computer how high of graphics could this play Starcraft 2 on?
  2. What resolution will you be playing at? In any case, I'd recommend a lot more GPU than that.
  3. For the DVD drive, Sony or Asus or Pioneer.

    Any reason your not going for a Z68 MB?

    You'll be able to play at a reasonable resolution with high detail graphics using that card.

    I prefer ASUS as a brand but what are the differences between the 2
    I'm game for anything, especially if its cheaper and around the same quality
  6. Go for a Z68 MoBo mannn!
  7. I'd recommend an HD 6950 if you can manage, it's almost 2x the 5770's performance.
  8. Hey Guys,
    I just went out and bought the parts
    I ended up getting the i5 2500k
    Patriot G2 series ddr3 memory
