Hello everyone, I am building a computer for the first time and had a few questions. I have been researching and buying parts for the past month or so. The following list of parts is what I have:

Case: Thermaltake Overseer RX-1
Power supply: Thermaltake TR2 RX 750 watt bronze
Processor: Intel i7 2700k
Mother board: Asus P8 Z77 V LK

Parts I have picked out:

RAM: Corsair vengeance 1600 MHz 8 CAS
Hard drive: WD 1TB blue/black (need help picking blue or black)

What I still need to research:

Graphics card: Primarily gaming, monitor resolution 1920x1200, max or almost max settings on newer games, willing to spend $200-$250, $300 if it will be worth it.

Hard drive: I know I want Western Digital, 1TB of storage, 7200 RPM, I need help deciding between blue or black. For now it will store everything, but later I will be getting a solid state to hold the OS, gaming exe’s, and other miscellaneous that I will need to pop in and out of (such as word documents, or excel sheets.)

Any help with picking the graphics card and hard drive would be much appreciated.

Best solution

That is a good place to start when considering a video card. Do you have a preference in a specific brand?

Not really, it would seem that AMD and NVidia are about the same at the 200-250 level.
