I was playing SWTOR, and realized that my graphics card only just meets the minimum requirements. Was thinking of updating that, but decided just to go for it and build my own gaming pc as my own pc is several years old, so that it will be hopefully more easily upgraded in the future if needed.
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Within the next month
BUDGET RANGE: $800-$1500
USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, Movies, internet browsing and email
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, Mouse, Speakers, Monitors (could be tempted to get a new monitor so can play in higher resolution currently my monitor only supports 1680x1050)
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg
PARTS PREFERENCES: Want a good video card that will allow me to play SWTOR with great FPS on high settings, would also want something to play Diablo 3, ME3 etc. on max settings
OVERCLOCKING: Never did this before as afraid of frying my computer so not sure
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: This is my first time building a computer so any advice would be greatly appreciated and I also need to get a copy Windows 7 64 bit for my new rig
Also, do I need to buy a wireless adapter or Ethernet card or will be part of the motherboard? This is my first time trying to build a good gaming pc so I'm not sure which parts are better than others.
