I think. Honestly, I'm about eight years removed from the last time I built a computer instead of bought one, so I'm muddling through this like a not-quite-newbie. I am looking to play WoW, Skyrim, probably SWTOR, a few other new games, so I'm aiming for something relatively powerful and current.
Also do sound cards all have universally bad reviews? Good lord. I just need something that will do surround sound, I have no idea what to pick, everything I looked at included a ton of doom reviews.
1300 is actually kind of expensive but I'll admit I'm hoping to grab some parts on sale since it happens to be November!
Not sure what else you need to know. Just looking for advice/corrections/input.
