Hey guys, Ive never used this site so Im sorry if I post in the wrong spot. Anyways Im building my first gaming computer, my knowledge of building pc"s stems from the last couple of days, so...not experienced at all. Id like to post my first draft of parts that I want to buy and see what you all think since Im sure most are more experienced than me. For cpu if i could afford it I know intels usually the way to go, but thats not in my budget so Im sticking with AMD. Last thing is I want to make sure all these parts are compatible and Im on a budget so 750 is the max I can go. So Id appreciate anyones opinion on this "draft rig". After this I'll likely post again with the links to make comparing easier but for now ill just put out the names, hope thats ok. Thanks!
