So in April I will be building my first PC ever!!! And it will be for gaming! Now I already have some parts in mind (I do know what parts I need)
-Motherboard: Asus Maximus V Formula
-Video Card: GTX 660 Superclocked
-Power Supply:TOPOWER TOP800WS
-Case: Cooler Master HAF X
-Hard Drive: (Youll See)
-20 dollar optical Drive
-Windows 7 Home Premium
Now all this is pretty sweet in my mind, but if you add it up, it is in fact over 1300 by just about 75 dollars. THE PROBLEM: Its over budget, but I don't really know what parts to downgrade. And I also want a 120GB (atleast) SSD WHAT I NEED HELP WITH: I need help downgrading these (below) parts but want certain features to be kept. So if you could suggest some parts that keep the features listed below.
Motherboard: 299 USD!!! What do be kept:
-easy to set up BIOS
-Built in sound
-Overclocking (Dont know what it means but Im sure its good.
-Its black and Red (doesnt have to be)
Power Supply: 60 USD
Case: 170 USD
-Ive looked hard and could not find a case lower than this with all its features
-Super Large For Large Parts
Processor: I really like this processor and would hate for it to be downgraded, but if there is something just as good and at a lower price, list it.
Now these parts listed above Im sure can be downgraded, but I think Im not looking hard enough. The things listed underneath are features Id like to be kept if downgraded.
