I've decided to go with a custom built computer and I have around 1300$(USD) to spend. I will be using this computer for some hardcore gaming (BF3, MW3, Diablo 3, Skyrim and Minecraft). I need some suggestions as to what the best parts to buy to make this the top notch computer I can make with my budget. I want to get a GTX 580 for now and buy another later for SLI, so make the power supply and MOBO good enough for SLI'ing please. The budjet money will also be covering the cost of shipping and taxes. I would also like a case that has filters infront of the fans because I have a chinchilla that sheds ALOT of hair balls and it takes a "dust bath" so not so computer friendly, but I think the filters will help.
PS - Does anyone know a fairly new video on how to assemble a computer?
System Usage from Most to Least Important: I use my computer EVERYDAY. I would like to do some hardcore gaming and record, School work, Watching Youtube Videos.
Parts Not Required: Monitor (If you cant fit the keyboard and mouse in the budget then its OK, I don't HAVE to have it)
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.com (Unless suggested)
Country of Origin: USA (Kansas)
Parts Preferences: Intel (i5 -2500k?) , Nvidia (580 if you can fit it into the tight budget)
SLI or Crossfire: Yes (Future upgrades)
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
Additional Comments: The case has to have filters infront of the fans so I can clean it much easier (as I have a chinchilla that sheds ALOT and he takes "dust" baths that would not be good for my computer to have inside xD. I would like a quiet PC, I would like a side window and tricked out but if you cant fit it into the budget then its ok
