Additional Comments: Alright so what I'm trying to set up is my computer in one room, hooked to my TV in the room beside through an HDMI cable in the ceiling. Going to need a long HDMI cable and a wireless keyboard/mouse with about a range of 10-20 ft but that can pass through an interior wall.
Not overly certain about any piece of the gear but especially not the motherboard or the graphics. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Is there anything I'm missing? This will be my first build and any advice would be appreciated. Still need a good wireless mouse/keyboard that will work through a wall. Not building on a budget but I'm not a serious enough user to need anything too over the top.
Thats a real nice build. Everything looks good. I just built a gaming rig for my wife with that same cpu/mobo. The bios is a little weird when you first see it. Only question is you dont have a second HDD like a 1TB WD or seagate for storage. Good luck and nice build
I was thinking I'd add another hard drive later as needed.
That really is a nice build. I've been considering the i5 or the i7. I was thinking the i7 just because I've had CPUs bottleneck my computers in the past. Is there something wrong with the ram I choose. I just wanted to get 16gigs and be done with it for the foreseeable future. I also choose the GTX 570 because D3 is really the only game I want to play right now and I figured I could add a second in SLI later if I needed more power. Is that a bad way to go about it?
