My last build was done in 2011 with and i5 2500k and a GTX 560 Ti video card so it's time for a new build. I'm a little behind on the current tech but I think I've come up with a decent build.
I play games so looking to build a decent gaming PC. I plan on picking up games like Witcher 3 and the like going forward.
Intel Core i5-4690K, EVGA GeForce GTX 970, Corsair 200R - System Build - PCPartPicker
This is my planned build but I have a few questions about some of the components.
I live near a micro center and they have a deal on the i5 4960k with a choice of motherboards and I need some help. The combo mobo I have chosen is the Asrock z97 pro 4 for 249.98. They also have the option of going with the z97 extreme 4 board for 279.98. What would you guys recommend? I plan on doing some moderate overclocking but not going crazy with it. What are the major differences between the 2 motherboards?
The case isn't set in stone either, I'm just looking for a decent mid tower case with good cable management and around $40-70 range.
I'm open to any suggestions you guys have if you can put together a better build for around the same price for $1000. I do not need a monitor or keyboard or mouse and such. My monitor is a 24" Asus 1080p for reference.
I appreciate the help.
