I decided today that I’m going to build a new PC. I’ve got my parts list figured out I think, but I’m going to post it here to get feedback. If you want to add helpful advice or ridicule me, please feel free. Look at me giving you permission to ridicule me on the internet. Anyway, the parts are below.

This PC is only going to cost me $313 as I just sold an old laptop and already have a 600 watt power supply from a recent build and already own a case. I have a 2.5” HDD I just bought that I’m using. This PC is for medium gaming. I play a lot of indie games and some AAA stuff like Bioshock, Skyrim, and on occasion Battlefield. I don’t care if things are at their prettiest, so long as I can get them looking decent and running well.

Intel i5-2500k CPU

4gb of G.Skill Ripjaw ram (will upgrade to 8gb later)

EVGA GTX 550 TI

Asus P8Z68 motherboard

@amir90: My subscription is up next month. I'm on the edge and not sure which way to lean.

I didn't see Dark Void listed here.

It seems as though I need to hurry up and buy the DLC before it goes away. Does anyone know when this is happening?

Thinking about it now, I really liked this game.

@amir90:But $50 sweeter?

My achievements aren't 8 years old, my profile is. Or very close.

I think I'm going with the Xbox 360. I can save up for an inexpensive PS3 at a later date. With all the time I've invested in my Xbox live account I can't leave it to die.

Does anyone want to be Xbox live friends? I'll be playing Battlefield 3 a lot and I never have enough friends for that. I'll probably pick up GTA: IV for cheap as well. I really liked the multiplayer.

@Humanity: Fair points, all of them. I suppose I could find someone that has a PS3, or buy one from Craigslist that has a busted disc drive. All I want it for are the indie games.

I need some help. You guys might be able to tip me one way or another. I'm going to buy a new console this Friday. I'm torn as to which way to go. Most of my friends are on the 360 and I already have a profile there that's got about 8 years of achievements on it.

I have 1 or 2 friends on the PS3. I'm interested in the PS3 because it has a lot of old games I liked on the PS1 available for download. It also has some indie stuff I want to play. Namely, Pixel Junk shooter 2 and Journey.

What would you guys do?

@TheDudeOfGaming: I can't tell if you're being snarky. Do you see what the internet has done to me?

This wasn't meant as a template, but more of a how to get started. I know that probably sounds pretentious but I've had success with it.

@RoboRobb: There isn't a good way to talk about Twitter without sounding like a stalker. But yes, if you provide your Twitter account details I'll follow you. And then you can follow me.
