I've been reading a lot of topics here for a few months, and have been trying to learn at a little more about computers from listening to the technical babble. This is the first time I've felt confident enough to ask a question, though I hope I don't come off as sounding like too much of a boozoo. Anyways I've wanted to build a PC for a while. My previous machine, while a great $1,800 machine, turned six years old recently. I've already upgraded my GPU to a GTX 680 4gb a year ago (replacing my GTX 280 2gb) and now I'm looking to finish the makeover and complete its modernization.
I feel more than a bit overwhelmed with the talk of compatibility and efficiency on numerous webpages. So I was hoping some cookie smarter than myself could give me his/her opinion on what I should do. My budget is hovering around the $1,000 range. I’ve already bought a case and plan to cannibalize my PSU and GPU (Corsair 850w and GTX 680 4GB EVGA) from my old PC.
I’ll be using this PC for just about everything [music/video editing to simple browser surfing,], but gaming+mods will be the most important by far.Any input at all would be greatly appiciated.
My initial selection, though it could be terrible for all I can say: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3NQy8d
