So, this coming fall I'm planning to reach a critical point in my life: building my first pc!
I've been scouring guides and using pcpartpicker quite heavily, trying to find the best combinations for what I'd like.
This isn't going to be a top-of-the-line gaming pc, but I'd like it to be able to play graphics intensive games (WoW, Skyrim, etc.) on the highest settings while not even coughing at video editing and multiple applications.
My price point is somewhere between $900-$1300 so here's what I have so far (which is a bit too expensive).
I'm rather fond of the case and I want that particular CPU for it's easy overclocking abilities, but otherwise I'm open to changes. I want to be able to (if I choose to in the future) expand my hard drive storage and maybe even add in an extra graphics card (hence the larger watt power supply and full size case.
thanks for the suggestion, thats not a bad idea. Any suggestions for just general reduction of the overall price? I'm running a gtx 560m in my laptop right now which I'm accustomed to so anything past that is an upgrade definitely.
I'm looking towards the future for Elder Scrolls Online and the like.
