Im new to the world of gaming and building computers ( right now I have a fujitsu with integraded graphics which cant do anything) basically I want something that will last a while and have decent performance. Heres the list of parts I have so far. I want a system around $1000 to $1200 with a decent soundcard.
Can someone let me know if these parts are ok or recommend other parts that might be better
case Zalman Z11 Plus $65
graphics card GTX 560 Ti $180 used
processor i5-3570k $223
motherboard gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H-WB $125 or open box newegg (msi Z77-GD55)
thanks for that link. I think I want to stick with an nvidia card just because I have a 3d tv that I can hook it up to just to have that option. As for the other parts I'll look through those I'll probably end up switching whats on my list for some of those parts.
If you have a MC near you, I can tweak the above build to include a GTX 670.
I dont know what an MC is
micro center. they have all these sweet deals. but they are only in the states
