I am a noob to this
So i'm in dire need of a new pc. I generally want it for gaming and Graphic Design. I am on a really tight budget.
So i want to know whats the best Pc i could build for under $600 that fits my needs. This does not include an optical drive, a monitor, an OS, a keyboard and mouse, nor a hard drive. A friend is donating those but i do plan on upgrading.
It will but you will need to flash the bios to be able to use that processor. Those components are fine. The memory you will have to be careful with if you ever get a large heatsink because of the high profile of the dimms.
Do you have a lot of devices that utilize usb 3.0. See I really dislike the standard because what happens is it normally needs drivers to work properly and few devices actually use the speed. That first link with the asrock 990fx board has front panel 3.0
I gotcha well you should be just fine with that motherboard honestly. You have 2 USB 3.0 ports on the back which would be more manageable cable wise anyway plus you have E-SATA which is faster then the USB 3.0 if your external drives had a E-SATA port.
I like it I'd personally say if you aren't looking to overclock you may be just fine with the stock cooler although I don't like using the stock fan.
