Everything above listed added up to 762.93. if you add the video card listed below it totals 1,012.92! That leaves me with 237.08 to work with a mobo/video card combo. I also already have a dvd drive.
With all that being listed i have not been able to choose a motherboard or video card because there is just so much to choose from. For the motherboard i want easy overclock ability for the i5 2500k. I was looking at a bunch of differnt Asus Z68 (pro and non-pro) mobos with UEFI Bios, but dont know to much about other brands with overclock compatablility.
With the video card i am open to any suggestion as long as it is a nvdia 560ti, or amd radeon similar card. I want to be able to play games like BF3, Skyrim and maybe some Crysis 2 on high and ultra settings. I included some links below to some cards i was looking at.
Thats about it. I havent built a computer in several years and havent really kept up with the new tech but im sure this will last me at least a few years. I just need it for high quality gaming and surfing the web.
Thanks for the time reading this post and all the suggestions you may give me. I plan on purchasing all this around mid-april. I know the new ivy-bridge cpus are coming out but i dont see much gain in it for me.
