Hey well ive been out of the loop for a while, my main comp recently stopped working and ive been trying to fix it but I figured i'd just get a new one seeing as its really outdated and cant really upgrade it at all. Last time I was gaming on PC was in the Core 2 Duo days, which is what my rig has. I need help on these new i5 and i7s, i read that the i5 is the way to go, but then i read something about LGA 1150 replacing the 1155 so idk what to choose. I was also looking at the 660ti which seems to be a great card for the money.
My budget is $800-$1000, i say this because I really want to get a new monitor and that would run me about $200
I could use my old PSU (corsair 650w) and dvd drive
Thanks in advance for all your help
