Finally getting my butt in gear

RE: Finally getting my butt in gear
Yeah, Tier 5 will have no problem with your monitor. The main difference, with respect to gaming, is the video cards. The rest is includes storage, nicer cases, etc...If you want to spend a bit more on future-proofing, you could leave most of the build unchanged, but grab a higher-tier video card. Just make sure you have room, and a higher tier Power Supply to back it up.

Tier 5 should let you max out all those games and whatever comes out for the next couple years just fine. Occasionally turn down the "Anti Aliasing (AA)" (Google it) when you have a performance dip.

If you want to get more adventurous, you could leave the Tier 5 as-is, but swap in the recommended SLI motherboard below. That would let you drop in a 2nd Video Card down the road. Only problem is the tech and amount of VRAM may be low by the time you buy the 2nd card, but having the option is still nice.
