Dead Mobo, New Intel Build
So looks like my ASUS Z87 Sabertooth motherboard died and I'll be needing to buy another 1150 mobo or just starting over and getting some new core components. Haven't been as involved in the computer community for the past 4 years so I'm pretty behind on all the new tech. Before my board died, it had a 4770K, 16GB of Corsair Vengence RAM, and a EVGA GTX770. I'm contemplating selling the CPU and RAM and just buying a new CPU, RAM, Mobo combo, or selling the CPU, RAM, and GPU to recoup the cost of buying all of it new.
I'm not a huge video editor, but I do have a 1440P monitor that I would love to continue to do casual gaming on. I mostly play CSGO, a not too terribly strenuous game, but love having the flexibility of playing new games on decent settings on 1440P. I don't have a set number for a budget, and I don't mind paying a premium for future proofing to last another 5 years.
Any advice would be appreciated.
