I've decided it's time to build myself another PC, and have once again come seeking advice. I built this machine in 2008, and haven't paid any attention to all of the new hardware and software released since, so I'm not really sure about most of what I've been looking at. I'm only looking to spend about $1,300 max, and this is what I've picked out so far, in no particular order. Spoiler OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - Oper...

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turb... No cpu cooler in the list as I've literally just decided on the i5 and haven't looked yet. Is there any particular cooler I should look into? No case either, as I'm waiting until I've picked out everything else before looking. Taking suggestions for those, too, if you've got 'em. What I'm the most hung up on is the motherboard. That video card I selected looks like it takes up two slots, so I'd need a motherboard with enough room for it. Those I looked at don't appear to have enough room, but then again I'm not exactly knowledgeable about these things and could easily be wrong. I have no idea. Any suggestions? This will be my second build, and that coupled with the fact that I've been out of the loop for so long means it's likely I've made a mistake or a couple dozen somewhere. Feel free to point them out! Thanks for any help. Edit: I'd like to add that my monitor is 1024x768 native. I don't have any need for a larger resolution, so the video card I chose is likely overkill. Basically, I just want a card capable of maxing todays games at a resolution of 1024x768 with a steady 60fps+. Am I correct in assuming the card I chose is overkill for this? If so, can anyone recommend a cheaper card that can still do what I want?
