I have a budget of around $1400 - including operating system - but need no monitor, mouse, or keyboard.
I must have a card reader and additional front USB ports - so I added some custom parts for those things. I would really like to "future proof" this PC - so went with the i7 instead of an i5 - not sure if that is warranted.
Some of my questions - do I need more RAM than 8GB? The most current game it's used for right now is Dragon Age: Inquisition - but who knows what will be made in 3 years from now, and I want this PC to still be relevant.
And I'm really not all that sure on how to pick a motherboard.
Is the power supply enough?
I'm not a tinkerer - so will not be overclocking.
