Hi there! I am doing my first build ever and I have ordered my case. It is a Rosewill Galaxy-01 Mid-Tower case. It has a lot of clearance and is able to fit most things that I would ever plan on putting in it. I also plan on going with a 500-600 watt PSU to power all my parts. I have had a hard time deciding on which CPU and motherboard I should get. I have talked to many PC experts and some say that I should go with an Intel i5 (which I would not prefer because it is a little pricey), and others say I should go with an AMD FX. I would much rather prefer an AMD FX because for a cheaper price I would get a higher clock speed and more cores then an i5 (I plan on doing some SLIGHT editing, quite a bit of gaming, and internet surfing). I am used Intel's a lot, and in my Mac Mini I have an intel i7. I am not sure on what to get. I would also like a good motherboard depending on which CPU I get. I also want to have some upgrading potential because in the far future I plan on going 2-way SLI with the GTX 970s. Any advice would be appreciated. Ty!
