I have been thinking about building a new computer for a while since my current computer is like 8 years old. I wanted to ask you if there were any obvious or preferably not obvious problems that might occur with this set up that i put together. I have been trying to stay under 600$ and I want an intel processor, although if someone made a really good argument for amd i may be swayed.
I thought that an ssd boot drive would be pretty great but is the money definitely better used towards a better gpu?
I actually really like the MSI R7770-PMD1GD5 Radeon HD 7770 though but would i have to upgrade to an ivy bridge to be able to use the pci x16 3.0 functionality on my motherboard?
