Hello everyone, I don't have much physical experience with computers but I'd like to learn. I have been doing a bit of research and came up with what I think looks like a good rig. I want this PC to last a long time so I don't plan on overclocking. I just want to make sure everything is compatible as well as hear your input if you think something should change.
As a side note I will be getting that i7 3770k for $230.00 from Microcenter, otherwise I would have just went with an i5 3570k (only 190$ at MC). Also I'm going for a plain black looking case with a low green glow on the inside, and I will be using a 1920 X 1080 monitor for mostly only gaming graphic intensive games, as well as indies of coarse. If you reply, Thanks [:
