I want to be able to play minecraft at far distance, DayZ and Tribes Ascend decently for now until I can upgrade later, and from what I can tell it will be.
What I think Im going to get:
There is no point in getting that mobo, get a cheaper one, like this one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
You will not be able to sli with this board though.
That GPU is a rip off. If you are only gonna spend 130 on a GPU at least get a 560se but I would recommend this 7850 or another 7850 one as they are not mush more expensive. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
get this PSU, it is the same wattage and is cheaper. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Also be sure you want to get that CPU cooler, it is not really needed unless you do relatively high ocing. And also make sure you want that case, you can get one that will work just as well for half the price. But to conclude, if you listen to me you will spend $15 less not including things I think can be cut out. But if you listen to nothing else I say, PLEASE don't get the 550ti, you can get better cards made by nvidia for the same price. That card is one of the worst price for performance out there, the only one that is arguably worse is the 640.
