Hi, I'm new to building my own PC, but have always been a bit of a PC gamer. However i am tired of trying to get games to run on my laptop! So want to have a go at making a decent gaming PC. I understand the basics, but struggle with configuring certain components against each other. Also since the introduction of multi core CPU's I sometimes struggle to understand which are the most powerful. Anyway there is a specific game I am trying to play on my current machine which is struggling. So my minimum benchmark would be something capable of this game. The game requirements are this: Processor: Intel Core i5-4430 3.0GHz / AMD FX-8300 Graphics: AMD Radeon R9 270X or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 System Memory: 8 GB RAM Storage: 4 GB Hard drive space I understand what those components are, but can anyone recommend a motherboard to connect them all to? Also, in gaming terms, are they fairly basic components? Would I need something much better to make it reasonably future proof? In addition to this, I also like to play retro games through Dosbox. I have those old games on floppy discs, which I currently use through a USB Floppy Drive. I would like an internal floppy on my new machine. Do they still make motherboards with built in Floppy support?
