I'm planning on building a gaming pc for myself soon. I have a budget of $1000, and was wondering if you guys had any suggestions. I've gone through a few guides and have made a list of parts I think are good, but decided to ask for a second opinion.
Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP, but at the latest December
Budget Range: $800-$1000
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Movies, Basic Word Processing
Parts Not Required: Mouse, Keyboard, Monitor, Operating System
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: NewEgg.com
Country: United States
Parts Preferences: I prefer Intel CPU's and nVidia graphics cards. I don't have an opinion on most other parts.
That would work, although the i5-2500k is a Sandy bridge processor, so older technology. Same goes for the GeForce 560Ti. The GeForce 660 I selected on my second build stomps it pretty well for about $10 more.
