GW2 PC build for about $500
I'm trying to put together a build to run GW2 for about $500 not including monitor or OS cost. I've already bought the monitor and will be getting Windows 7 or 8. Here's the partial build from PC Part Picker: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/p4B5
I was thinking of using this chipset: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820313086
I live near a Micro Center, so I'll be able to get some of these items there. For example, I'll can get the i5-3570K for $169.99 and the Gigabyte MoBo for $39.99. Also, I can get the power supply from NewEgg for $16.99 after rebate. My current total is about $510.
PC Part Picker had the following message regarding the build: Some Intel H61 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Ivy Bridge CPUs. I'm not sure if this is something that would give me problems or that I'd need to address if I bought this combination. Should I use a different MoBo and/or CPU?
This would be my first 'complete' build and I'm a casual gamer, so I won't be looking to OC. Any comments regarding improvements or potential problems (like the mobo message) regarding this build? Most of it came from 'skidawgz' suggestions in a thread from June 2012.
