Before addressing the wireless question.
It's a long way back to your original parts list and there has been some alterations. So we know were we are with parts and cost, please post the link to your updated list.
Hello again everybody! It's time for another update.
I apologize for re-quoting, but I thought it necessary given iammykyl's message fits in with this new update quite well.
To make things a bit easier for us all and less cluttered on this topic's page, I'll simply be posting links to either PC Part Picker or an X Marks shared folder when I reference my parts list. Secondly since you all have been so helpful and nice I thought I'd return the favor and ask if it would be helpful for me to do an assembly topic when I finally get the parts. If so I'd be more than happy to take pictures and discuss my thoughts and experiences as a first-time PC builder in the hopes that it will help those who are like me and building their PC for the first time.
Without further ado THE LIST! O_O
Some notes about this most recent parts list:
*While there are many niceties of the new Ivy Bridge i5-3570K (PCIe 3.0 ) it would appear that it doesn't accept 1866 clocked RAM. If I am wrong in this assumption please correct me; if not then I will most likely revise the list to include the Sandy Bridge cousin to the 3570, the i5-2500K.
*The current motherboard on the list would necessitate purchasing a wireless network adapter (most likely of the USB variety) for wireless internet capabilities. Otherwise there is a slightly more expensive version of the same mobo that has built-in wireless functionality and at this point I am wondering whether or not it would be more fiscally wise to get that instead of purchasing a separate product to gain wireless internet connectivity.
*The case present in this list is the "windowed" version of the case I intend to purchase. The windowless version is slightly cheaper, but in either case case (pun intended) I will need to purchase after-market fans/filters which are not included in the list here as PCPP has no option to do so. I would imagine another $30 or so for the additional fans and filters. Again, if I'm wrong in that assumption don't hesitate to call me stupid and correct me.
*I am uncertain as to whether the wattage on the PSU I selected is sufficient to power this build or not. After reviewing the links provided I looked for PSUs by Corsair, Antec, and Sea Sonic and finally settled on the one in the list above. It is certainly subject to change if a better option is suggested and any and all advice in that regard is greatly appreciated.
*I've said before that I intend to get a Mionix NAOS 3200 for my mouse and as such the above listed G500 is simply a placeholder based on the fact that it shares a similar price tag to the Mionix unit.
I'm fairly certain everything else is in order and I'm trying to keep my posts from turning into novel-length ramblings so to that end I'll leave it here and look forward to what you have to say about this most recent revision.
Thanks again and I look forward to continuing this most enlightening discussion.
