These are the parts I -think- are good and somewhat in my price range. If anyone can help suggest anything better and more bang for my buck then it would be appreciated if you could help.
Ironically that's the same article that I used to base it on but it didn't have the power that I really wanted for the CPU so I went with the i5-2400. The Mobo is something that I do not know how to choose so I went with something that my friend had gotten when I built his computer so if there anything you can help with reducing the price, it would have to be the Mobo so that I might upgrade the i5-2400 to an i5-2500k. the GTX 550 Ti is the kind of GPU that is is my price range, I don't want it to cost more than around $150. I would like to have 8gigs of ram but the price is kinda up there and would be very helpful if you could help find cheaper ram that is 8gig.
I would also need the room of 500 GB because I use steam and have wayyyy too many games on there which total on the current partition that I have almost takes up close to 100 gb and it is still growing. Also and cheap SSD that I can purely just have for the OS would also be helpful as I don't know what are effective SSD's with room for Windows 7 OS.
dudewitbow, I'm very interested in the build you posted. Would you recommend a different mobo?
I'm just trying to get a diablo 3 max settings pc.
you don't really have to change the mobo unless you would rather have 1600 frequency ram. the 7770 should run diablo very easily, and at a low computer temperature as well. you can use an i3-2120 and beef up your gpu, but really its your choice.
