I'm just getting back into PC gaming after a very long hiatus. I'm doing research in terms of building an upper mid range desktop. I haven't kept up with all the hardware developments so some pointers would great. What would I be looking at in terms of a video card ( I was last up to date in the 3DFX Voodoo era..) My aim would be to have smooth gameplay at 1080p. What other components would be preferred? I just want to buy the right stuff first time round.
Then secondly a few game recommendations to buy first, preferably games with some depth to them.
Thank you for any advice!
