I am hoping to build a computer in the coming weeks. My first attempt was several years ago when I was a young teen and I bought a $300 TigerDirect combo pack. I failed and returned everything. I mostly blame my knowledge at the time. This time I have the funds and hopefully some more knowledge. I intend to use this rig for gaming (maybe a little bit of FRAPS/Streaming), and media entertainment.
I was trying to create an exceptional rig without breaking the bank. If you have any cost cutting opinions, I'd greatly appreciate it.
Also, it is my understanding that the Z97 chip set motherboards are just rolling out. Would it be wiser to stick to Z87?
Thanks for all your input/recommendations!
