1. Playing Steam games such as TF2, CS:S, DOD:S, etc... (minecraft aswell)

2. Viewing Netflix, Hulu, and Youtube.

3. Browsing the web.

I have watched alot of installation videos on youtube and i think i should be able to build one, however...

I want to multi-task and use 2 monitors with my pc as well as it be able to be quick.

I have put together a list on Newegg here it is...

So the thing that i am missing is a Motherboard, can anyone recommend one? (if im missing anything else please let me know)
i have a monitor and keyboard so i dont have to buy those.

Also is there anything that i could cut back to save money?


This will be my first build so if anyone has a website with detailed step-by-step instructions i would love to read it.
===== Sorry for so many questions i just dont want to mess this up,

----Thanks in Advance!

Update 5: Chris Chris, is that wireless adapter internal or external?
Update 6: Around $1,017 as of now
Update 7: Edit13: "If you dont mind adding like 120$ an SSD is something to consider."

wait what exactly does an SSD do? would it be worth the xtra money? and what would u recommend?
Update 8: Changed mic to Rosewill RH-01 total now at around $995
Update 9: Thanks, would that windows version be ok? its called an OEM or something, can i use that?

Also, will this have enough speed to multitask and use 2 monitors?
Update 10: the only reason im spending the extra money on the 922 is..

1. the youtuber i watched build a pc had the same case

2. The case has a motherboard template to show where to place it.

3. The case is aesthetically pleasing.
Update 11: BTW is 520W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.91 80 power supply enough?

and im not overclocking but do i need any extra fans or coolers?
