I want top of the line. So any recommendations let me know. I am getting it all off of Newegg. If I should be looking anywhere else give me a recommendation Power supply: Roswill Green Series RG630-S12 Case: Cooler Master HAF X RC-942-KKN1 Processor: intel core i5-3550 ivy bride 3.3GHz Heatsink: Cooler Master Memory: Corsair Vengence 16GB (4x4) 240 pin. Also some Asus CD/DVD burner. So what is the ABSOLUTE BEST motherboard(intel) and Hard Drive for gaming? Also am I missing anything? Is everything compatable? This is my first build and I want it to be the absolute best I can make. Also for future reference, what is the best Graphics Card? I won't be getting one due to price but eventually I will. This will be my high matenence PC but I won't be trying to play any brand new games until I get my graphics card.
You don't really need 16gb of ram to be honest, 8 will run any game on max settings right now.
Any graphics card over $500 is overkill and most likely for video editing and the like.
If I had the money I'd buy an asrock z68 extreme4 gen3 mobo.
If you're not going to be using too much hard drive space then I'd buy an 120gb or 240 gb corsair or OCZ ssd because it's smaller, quieter, and faster.
Or you could buy a 32gb ssd, put your os on that and then get a 500gb or 1tb westgate hard drive
