    Looking to build my first PC. I do have to admit I get stuck when looking at a good video card and mobo to go with.

    Right now I'm looking this i5-3570K

    For a case.

    Now new egg gives me this combo when looking at the parts and looks pretty good

    Also I'm guess SSD's are the new rage for gaming, but I'll hold out in that for now. Is there anything you would change or add?

    If you like the case, stick with that one. Otherwise everything looks fine, but obviously you need a hard drive of some sort.

    What a lot of people do, is they get a small SSD Drive, and use that for the installation of Windows, and files and other programs, then you have a large HDD to store your games and what not.

    I've got a 120GB SSD, for Windows 7, and then a 3TB for everything else that I have.

    I usually go to NewEgg to build the computers, but then look around on the web to see if I can find the parts for cheaper! So try out NewEgg and see how that works out for you!
