I already have some RAM I got for free, DDR3 8gb. I have a corsair tx650 psu, and a geforce 9800gtx+ that I am keeping for now. Mainly for gaming/school work/video editing.
Not the best with computer hardware, but here is what I came up with
$230 cpu i5-3570k ivy bridge 3.4ghz http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116504
$130 mobo gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128543
$40 case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146075
I don't know whether to get a SSD or regular HDD. I have a 320gb that has some slight errors that I could use in sync with the SSD until I buy a new one. But are SSD worth it?
I'm buying this as soon as I can get the build ready. And I have all the peripherals (two monitors, speakers, mouse, and keyboard)
