I just got a year end bonus and would like to build a new 1155 rig with some of the money. I have 2 goals: 1 it must play star wars old republic and 2: be under $1000.00. I already have a corsair 850 watt power supply so that will help. Here are the parts I'm considering. The biggest unknown to me here is the mobo and RAM. Any input is appreciated.
Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000)
HIS IceQ X Turbo H695QNT2G2M Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit
GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68
OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III
Cooler Master HAF 922
*I am at $984.94 as it is.
