Okay I've never built a PC before but I desperately need one. I am sick of dell garbage.
I think I will start with the CPU, I am thinking the i7-2600k because it seems like the best bang for the buck that will last me for a long time. Then I am not sure where to go from there such as which part would be best to pick next, what type of motherboard I need, if I should get a full or mid size tower case etc...
I am looking for speediness as priority #1; speediness during everything I do with the OS and programs. I just hate clicking on something and waiting for it to process. Also, I will like to use it for movies, video editing, photo editing, programming and things such as that. Gaming is not an issue.
One plan I have is to both have this computer connect to my TV in my bedroom (which is the neighboring room) to watch movies on my TV, as well as use the monitor AS a TV, also use two monitors next to each other.
I would appreciate any help
Budget - Approximately $1300, just as an estimate. I think a lot of times people focus on gaming but keep in mind I will not do any gaming that my current laptop couldn't handle.
Purchase date - as soon as I get a concrete build that seems like it has passed scrutiny.
All parts will be required except the 2nd monitor and the TV.
I do have a concern I won't know what kind of cords I need to buy... do all parts come with necessary cords?
