I'm planning on buying these parts and building a good gaming PC sometime in the next few months. I intend to use it to play emulators as well as contemporary stuff from Steam (Like BioShock Infinite, XCOM, etc.)
I'm wondering if there's a good alternative to some of these parts so I could cut down on cost. Several of the things on there (mouse, keyboard, monitor) won't need an upgrade nearly as often as a video card and all that so they'll basically be a one-time expense. That I understand. I'm just wondering since I'm not into competitive multiplayer and just want my games looking pretty and running smoothly if there's a way I can get cheaper stuff.
(The CPU needs to be that good according to the Dolphin site to run GameCube and Wii games.)
Also, any tips or links on how to actually build the thing and set it up would be appreciated. If there's anything else I need, I'd like to know.
