Hey this is my first post and I have been researching mobos, gpus, and just about all parts for my first build for a few months now. I just noticed that newegg has an Asus supercombo deal right now for around $1100, and I was wondering if it could handle most games on max settings. So here is the combo deal, which basically has everything except a mass storage drive and an OS:
Do you guys think that this would be a decent computer for the price? The grand total shipped to my door is $1,262.98 (minus the OS, that is a birthday gift from my mother). I was mainly looking at playing GW2, Battlefield 3, and possibly Diablo 3. I might also use it for CAD software if I decide to go into the engineering field when I graduate high school. Any feedback is much appreciated.
I kind of want to stay away from ATI/AMD cards mainly because I have heard so much about problems with their drivers. And I have heard that the UD series from gigabyte has had some bios issues with the ivy bridge processors and PCIe 3.0.
