This is what's confusing me. What is the difference between i3, i5, and i7? Whats the difference between different cores? What is the difference between "Intel Core i5-2500 3.30GHz " and "Intel Core i7-2700K 3.50GHz"?
And 8 gb ram should do but I like to at least slightly over do it. So 12gb, or 16gb maybe? (And I was just thinking the more ram, the better. it will only do good)
I think I'll get a 1T hard drive, more can't hurt though right?
And I have NO clue on how to buy a motherboard.
The same with a graphics card. "HIS HD 7870 IceQ 2048MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card (H787Q2G2M) w/ FARCRY3, Nexuiz & Sleeping Dogs PC Games" Do you judge with the 7870 number?
And I really would't know what else to add.
Edit: Also, buying from www.dabs.com
seems to be cheaper but better... can you maybe build the equivalent over there?
