Hi, I've just recently have been looking into building a PC for gaming with a budget of around 900$ give or take 100$. I'm not very knowledgeable about all the parts, but have been studying. This is what I have so far and now I'm stuck with what the next part I need to continue my build.

Case-Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 140mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan, option Fans-2x Side 120mm Fan

CPU-Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623I52500K

Motherboard-GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

I need some help on what to look to purchase next, all help is very much needed and appreciated. If anyone has a checklist or something of that sort to ensure that I get every component I need, that would be great. Thanks in advance :) 


Extra notes: Games> League of Legends
Dragons Nest
Forsaken World
Also enjoy watching videos and streams of other games, as well as just surfing the web but am looking for a pc to play games with medium to high settings with no issues.
All parts looking to be purchased off New Egg.
If there is any other information needed, please post would gladly add more info.

Budget is anywhere from 800-1000$, and I will look at both of the motherboards. Also which one is better?


Next question, which component do I look at next?

No problem!Your very welcome!Yes you should be able to run all current games on high or ultra settings not just the ones you listed but all games period depending on your monitor resolution and how many monitors you will be using for example a single monitor 1920 x 1200 or 1920 x 1080 you'll be able to play on high settings :)

Keyboard I recommend is the Sidewinder X4. Good quality and cheap for its features.

For monitor, I recommend you avoid 24" and 27" at 1080p and 27" at 1200p. I suggest the Yamakasi Catleap Q270 2560x1440 H-IPS panel Monitor for $330 or so.

I looked i don't think he can afford it as he still needs a mouse,keyboard,speakers, and possible OS. Only has four hundred to get all that so i am pretty sure a Yamakasi Catleap Q270 2560x1440 H-IPS panel Monitor is out of op reach :??:
