so I'm building a computer for the first time. I've done a bit of research in the past couple of months on what seems to be the best components for my needs and have found a couple of what appears to be good combo deals from newegg.
let me begin with that I am building a new computer particularly for games such as Skyrim, Battlefield 3, and Starcraft 2. I don't really care for Ultra graphics. I would settle for high on 1920x1080.
I was interested in this mostly because of the additional blu-ray driver. I've begun buying all my movies on blu-ray. However, I'm not sure if 4gb of RAM is enough, or the radeon 6850 and phenom x6 1055t is good enough for Skyrim or Battlefield 3.
This is a little bit cheaper but does not come with a cd/dvd burner. It does come with the beloved i5-2500k, a GTX 560 Ti, and 8gb of RAM.
Anyways, to sum it up, I'm looking to play games with this new computer on 1920x1080 on at least high settings. I was also wondering if there would be anything else I need to buy for my first computer? I already have a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I know I need to buy a wireless adapter as well.
the amd build also has 1 tb hdd which is definite overkill considering that on my current computer I only have 280 gb used. I also plan on getting a laptop for school use so the computer will be used for the basic computer uses, such as web surfing, watching videos, and listening to music, and also playing games.
