I would like it to be able to play games as smooth and as beautiful as possible, also to be able to rig it to a home theater surround sound system thats compatible with my TV as well. I already have a TV with audio and HDMI output and i will be using my TV as the monitor for this build... at least for now.
I have picked out a set of components for the build, but since i am new to this i would appreciate help to make sure everything is compatible and also will work on the sound system (which i do not own yet) as well as get some suggestions as to what will work better. my budget is $1500, but i can dish out a couple hundred more if needed.
heres the list of parts. (don't worry about a mouse/keyboard, i got em')
-Video card (they offer this as a combo with the motherboard)
-CD drive/burner (I have no idea when it comes to these and will probably need help)
-Power Supply (also may need help here)
another concern is sound cards, i havent got much of a clue what they do or if i even need one. Well i hope this is all the info you need, feel free to ask more questions if needed, hope i didnt forget anything.
