I'd like to start getting into pc gaming as there r 2 main games i want to play civ5:gods and kings and the new simcity. Id woundnt mind trying my hand at some diablo3 or tourchlight2. Im not really into mmo or first person shooters, so if that matters into anything. I'd like to spend about $1000 on everything less if i can save some mone for some games and dont need a moniter. And from what im reading intel and nvidia or the way to go!! any help would be great
Take a look through this. this will run all those games with ease plus even newer games...so if will last you a while. and its upgradable
all looks ok there but if u getting z77 and cpu cooler then u should get cpu 3570k, if u stick with 3450 u dont need cpu cooler nor z77 mobo, h77 will do fine.
not familiar with the case but corsair 300r are realy good, or aim for any other that has usb3.0
