Hi, I'm going to build my first custom rig, and I am looking for a mid-higher end gaming machine. I don't really know much, so I'm looking for some advice on component selection. I have a microcenter nearby, so I may be using that for a few components.
Budget: Around 1500
Monitor, mouse, and keyboard: Already have these
OS: Need a Windows 7 copy (I'm probably going to go Pro so I can use RDP and network backup)
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg or Amazon
Parts Preferences: Intel, NVIDIA, High-end RAM
Overclocking: Probably not
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe in the future
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
I'm thinking of getting the NVIDIA GTX 680 to future proof for a few years. I want the system to be able to last for several years.
