As expected - I am looking to finally build a gaming pc. It is the summer, I have 2 jobs, and I finally have the means to make this a reality.
However, I am not looking to make a top of the line PC right away. Rather, I want something upgradeable. I'd like to be able to play most games on high settings at a reasonable resolutions. I don't need ultra high graphics at 2560x1600. The main game I play is Starcraft 2 and I'd like that to be playable at very high settings.
So what do you all recommend? I don't need something top of the line right now, but definitely something that is upgradeable. I'd like to be as conservative with my money as possible - I don't need an SSD at this point or even blu-ray, but the core components should be solid.
I already have a monitor (1440x900 19 inch LCD) that does not need to be upgraded right away, so this post is purely about the computer and components, not about accessories.
Also, I have never built a computer before, but I've been wanting to for years!
Thanks so much!
