I will start by saying I haven't built a system in at least 6 years. I used to do it a lot but then I had kids. I am looking to build a quality system on a budget. I would like to build in some future proofing (as futile as it may be). I am looking at z77, crossfire/sli compatible (for future use), over-clocking compatible (again not now but in the future perhaps), and USB 3.0. There is actually a very low chance I would ever over-clock as I have never done it before but I thought having the option might help future proof the system a bit. Maybe I am wrong. I also didn't include the parts I already have. (additional storage, monitors, keyboard, mouse)
Primary uses: Gaming - League of Legends, Civ V, Battlefield, anything that goes on sale via Steam.
Secondary uses: Then all the usual, web browsing, email, Microsoft office, making YouTube videos, etc.
Overall I am happy were the price is. What I need help with is whether or not everything is optimal for its price range? Are these quality parts? Am I spending money in the right places? Please share your wisdom with me. I am not up to date on my hardware. I spent a couple days researching and making this list but I need you pros to give it a once over before I bust out the credit card.
Thanks for taking the time to look it over, even if you don't respond.
