Been wanting to build my first PC but don't have much idea and pretty much copy pasted the "great" bar from http://www.logicalincrements.com/. Following that I made this http://pcpartpicker.com/p/dzwQBm. Will just follow guidelines since don't have much idea. I have tons to learn.
Budget: Maximum around 700$ for the hardware not including the OS and peripherals. Less is better.
From Puerto Rico which uses USD.
Don't have a preference in retailer but there is a local Tigerdirect, though a friend has Newegg Premier so most of my purchases will be thought him, leaving Tigerdirect for peripherals.
Have no peripherals, Only thing I have is a an HP w1907 monitor which is 1440p but much more likely I will be using a 720p TV.
I will using it for gaming.
Being my first PC and it sounding intimidating, I won't be overclocking, won't be watercooling.
Don't have an OS and not sure on how to pick. I know it has to be 64bit but not sure if I should wait for Windows 10, get Windows 8.1 and also buy the start menu program Logan uses or get Windows 7. Also don't know the difference between EOM and retail licenses.
For setting, I want to play as high as it will let me while staying at 60FPS. If I keep Nvidia GPU might just let Nvidia Experience do settings at first then just tweak from there.
The resolution I play will depend on the game. If it can be played with a controller I will be using the 720p TV but if not it will be on a 1440p monitor. I don't know if I care about resolution since always played 720p on Xbox 360.
Some games on my wishlist are Metro, Amnesia, GTA IV and V, Just Cause 2, Valve's games, Wolfenstien, Shadow of Mordor. But what I will be playing the most will be modded Elder Scrolls and Fallout.
The case has to be HAF 912 since my friend gave me one. Bit more interested in Intel and Nvidia but not a requirement.
