Making a computer for the first time. need some tips. – Hino Turbocharger – Detroit Diesel Turbo

I honestly don’t recommend wireless headsets as those that run onrechargeable batteries don’t last very long and/or are prettyexpensive. Since you said you would also use them for videos (and I alsopresume music), the ASUS ROG Vulcan ANC is an excellent headset. It’s wired, but you can disconnect thecable from the headset when you’re not using it. It also features noise cancelling, which really helps immerse youin games by limiting exterior noise (like case fans or the AC). CAT Turbocharger

It’s not exactly on the cheap side, but you get what you pay for inaudio quality. Razer and Logitech also make pretty decent gaming headsets. This rig fits your demands nicely: Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 (REV 3.1) LGA 1155 ~ $150 CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K @ 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) ~ $219 RAM: Corsair 2x 4GB DDR3 @ 1600Mhz Dual Channel Memory Kit ~ $39 Video card: ASUS EN GTX560 Ti Core 448 320-bit 1280MB GDDR5 ~ $310 HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB ~ $95 Case: Cooler Master Storm Trooper ~ $190 PSU: Corsair TX650 650W ~ $90 (after rebate) TOTAL: $1,094 And I would also recommend a good after-market cooler for the CPU: Noctua NH-D14 ~ $90 TOTAL (with cooler): $1,184 With this rig you’ll max Crysis 2 @ Full HD and play BF3 @ Full HDwith high-ultra settings. Skyrim doesn’t require very demanding hardware so not only will yoube able to max it out with this rig, but even use some clevertweaks and mods to further improve image quality. Hino Turbocharger

There are some areas where you can trim on costs , such as exchanging the motherboard with something cheaper, butthen you’ll lose overclocking potential, features and possiblylong-term system stability. You could also go for a cheaper case and a cheaper (but lessperforming) video card such as the AMD 6870 or the nVidia GTX 560Ti. For the rig above, I recommend a 650W PSU, but if you change theGPU to one of those mentioned above, a 550W PSU would be sufficientas well. You’ll also need a 64bit OS to use more than 4GB of RAM.
