Ask ! Get the answer JTursi July 26, 2012 11:35:22 PM I do have another monitor with 1920 x 1080 res (around 21''). Ive been using my 32'' tv as my monitor which is what I originally started in the post; and yes there is a microcenter nearby. Thanks for the feedback TheBigTroll a b 4 Gaming July 27, 2012 12:34:24 AM ok then good. you can go to microcenter and get the i5 3570k for 189.99 and the asrock extreme4 board for around 99.99 dollars boulbox a b 4 Gaming July 27, 2012 3:36:32 AM yep with a microcenter nearby you can save quite a bit you can also get 2x4GB ram over there if you do not want to order online/pay shipping this lets you spend more on stuff like GPU,PSU, and Case (ordered from most important to least) you can already get a pretty cheap 520W supply and will work good but if you are planning on getting a second GPU, you should make it go to 700W or more if you want to spend more on the PSU and don't have enough for a good case(usually $80+ for good cable management) then get a modular PSU that is 700-800W if you do have the case i would say to get your hands on a 670 GPU that will last for quite a while and it can fit inside your budget Can't find your answer ?
