Hey guys, let me just start by saying I have never ever built a computer in my life. I have read many articles and watched some videos to get a good idea how to instead of buying a pre-built from Ibuypower. I am trying to get a mid-grade build, something that will last for a good amount of time and will be able to run games such as BF3 on high to ultra. Please if you have cheaper options plz let me know with reasoning behind your opinion. And if I am missing anything I may need to build it or for the actual computer plz let me know. I appreciate any help.
all the links are dead because they have 'http://www.&.com/#034;' and im too lazy to change each one. does everything have to be from newegg? descriptions and prices on the thread would make it easier.
i would look at intel. do you plan on overclocking? if not then you can save some money. also you probaly wont need 16GB of memory. that monitor has horrible reviews on newegg which would keep me from buying it. that case might look nice but a $100 case on a $1000 build is too much. especially at the expense of other parts.
