I am new to the forums and I hope you all can help me. I am looking to build a new gaming system capable of running the current generation of games at 1080 resolution on reasonable graphics settings. I will be updating from a much older Core 2 Quad system that is still surprisingly capable for what it is, and would like some help making sure the hardware that I choose will be compatible and will also afford me the best performance possible at the best price possible.
So far my component choices are:
Intel Core i5-4690K Devil's Canyon
MSI Z97 Gaming 5 ATX Motherboard
Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 Ram
Seagate 1TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA Harddrive
Samsung 850 EVO 250GB SATA III SSD
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 Video Card
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Cooler
Cooler Master HAF 912 Case
I would like recommendations on a power supply, a better video card for a reasonable price difference, preferring to stay with the GTX 970 series, and better or faster RAM for a reasonable price. I also need a recommendation for a very good wireless card as where my computer is located cannot have hard line run to it.
All of this will be used to play things like Fallout 4 and GTA V, as well as older games like Skyrim, previous Fallouts and GTAs and maybe Far Cry 4. I am planning to use Windows 7 as the operating system and playing through an older HP 27 inch 1080p monitor.
I am planning on taking advantage of Newegg's Black Friday sale, provided I can come up with a list of components to purchase before the sale ends or they are sold out.
