This will be my first time building a computer, and need a little advice. I have already picked out the parts but need to know if I am getting the right parts for what I need. This will mainly be a gaming pc and something I watch movies on, thats it! I am trying to stay under 1500$! All items and prices are from newegg.com and tigerdirect.com
From the U.S / Prefer to use Newegg.com - Tigerdirect as I am first time buyer, unless you can suggest other well known sites / Dont have a clue how to overclock / dont know what SLI or crossfire is / and not sure what I would need for resolution!! (This is stay in line of format for posting)
If you are not overclocking and never plan to in the future, I would get the i5-2400 instead and a H67 chipset motherboard. However, since overclocking is very simple nowadays, I recommend the i5-2500k and a p67/z68 motherboard.
Less ram? I spend about 8-10 hrs a day on the computer playing games. I want to be able to stream them as well. Probably will have several web browsers open while this going on as well. So still less ram? Or is that a cpu thing? Sorry im not good with this kinda stuff at all :S
