I am putting my first gaming rig together on NewEgg. After a week of heavy research I am posting a proposed build that would hopefully top out at >1600$. Before I take the plunge and buy the parts there are a few ponderings that, as a newbie, I feel no amount of passive forum/review lurking could comfortably satiate. I'd also like to say that tom's hardware has become my go-to reference for all things computers. I am glad to have found such an informed and flame free community.
That being said, here are said concerns:
-Future Proof...ness(Not a huge concern, I'd still like to be pretty well off come 2014)
-MUST have accessories(fans, peripherals, etc.) for gaming/minor overclocking
-Any Core components I may be missing
-GTX680/Asrock Extreme6 Mobo -or- GTX670/Asus Sabertooth Z77 (Being presented as relatively equally priced options for motherboard/discrete graphics card combinations)
I greatly appreciate all input and if additional information is required to provide it, feel free to ask.
