This is my first build and my budget is around $1300, but I am willing to spend a little more for necessary high quality components. My purpose for the new computer will be gaming, with a secondary purpose of nothing. Purely games. I've been doing a lot of research on this website and have taken a preference to Intel and EVGA. So, is the following a quality build?
The motherboard isn't compatible with the cpu you chose. I propose Asrock extreme3 gen3.
8gb of ram is more than enough.
Don't get the gtx 560. Either gtx560ti or even better, imho, 6950 1gb.
Why amazon? Go for newegg.
