The games I really have my mind set to playing are Dayz(the arma 2 mod), minecraft, and WoW. I am on a fairly tight budget, not including the operating system, keyboard, mouse, or monitor, Im willing to spend about 500-650 dollars. I will gladly take suggestions for improving performance or lowering price.
I will definitely get the suggested motherboard, but you must remember, I am on a tight budget and buying the i5 nearly puts me over. So I was wondering where I could get these parts cheaper prefferably in bundles.
