It's my first time attempting a build and have been reading on the forums for a while but I finally decided to join and ask for some help. Like I said, trying to build a PC somewhere within the 500-700 dollar range. I've done a lot of reading and whatnot but am still not sure about compatibility issues and if whether or not I'm making the best choices on components or if I could do better. Here's what I had in mind so far (I'm totally up for scratching it all and starting over btw)
As far as HD and DVD drive.. I have no clue what direction to steer towards as far as quality differences.
Again, please feel free to tell me I'm all jacked up here if that's the case. Here to learn! Thanks!
Gotchya. Yeah I really wasn't even looking at the i5-2500k until now but I like what I'm seeing! For instance BF3/MW3 and mostly shooters plus some Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 (eventually).. any idea on performance there?
