Re: Gaming PC- First Build
if you dont have any currently, you will need to buy speakers. a set of 2.1 (2 speakers a little subwoofer) of under $100US is typical.
sound can be done off from the motherboard and is more than adequate for 95% of people. Some improvements could be had, and might not be a bad idea given your overall budget. For just gaming, you can get a sound card for under $35US
Dont cheap out on the power supply. especially with as a high a budget as you have. You should look at getting an antec, corsair, or seasonic power supply. investing just a bit more into the power supply is a cheap insurance for the rest of the system. This is even more important if you dont have the highest quality and most reliable electricity supply.
I am not familiar with SSD's enough to know the differences between those ones. I do know that intel makes the best ones, though they also get the highest price.
