Well tax time is here and since my currrent system is very outdated I have decided to build a new system. Im looking for advice on parts and compatibility for my first build. I have used AMD in the past and would like to go over to intel based on overall reviews I have read.
•Budget --- ~1300 USD
•Resolution --- 1920x1080 Dual monitor...one for browsing only(already have the monitors)
•Games / Settings Desired --- WoW, Skyrim, DoTA2, LoL, CoD, BF3 and ESO when it is released. Not expecting to max settings on every game but as close as possible while staying around my budget.
•Country --- US, Arizona
•Parts that can be reused --- 2.5TB of mechanical HDD, Optical drive
•Do you need an OS? --- Yes
•Do you need peripherals --- No
Some things I have decided on already to be included:
windows 8 as an OS(new laptop has it and im starting to like it)
H100i for the cooler(Few people I know use them and love the performance)
I would prefer a case with a windowed side panel(not a deal breaker)
