My old PC is dying a slow death, so it's time to look for a new one. I'm fairly tech. savy, but I've never built a PC from scratch before so I'm hesitant to go the entire "build your own" route as I don't really want to risk getting a motherboard that doesn't fit the case, not enough fans, nor ***** up installing the processors. I've installed power supplies, slave drives, RAM, & video cards though so I'm not a complete n00b, however I've always found it easier to purchase a decent system then upgrade from there.
I wanna spend less than $1000 & have a good monitor already, so looking around New Egg I found this.
Intel Core i5-2500K 3.30GHz Quad-Core processor (Sandy Bridge)
8GB DDR3 1333MHz Dual Channel Memory
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
1TB SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 7200RPM
600W Power Supply
AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB PCI-E Graphics Card
PCI Slots: 1x PCI-e x16, 1x PCI-e x1, 2 x PCI
Would this be a decent starting point? Looking around New Egg & not really wanting to go the alienware route, this looks like the best "starting" gaming PC I could find. Any thoughts on upgrades? Thanks for any & all input!
