How are you all doing? I decided a while back that i wanted to build my computer rather then buy one, now the main reason i'm doing so is for the building experience it's self. I have put togeather some parts and would like to get your feed back on my selected parts. Note my budget is extreamly tight and i have already bought the PSU, RAM, and case.
CPU: AMD A8-5600k
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 2x2gb
PSU: corsair cx500w 80+ bronze
CASE: cooler master HAF 912.
HDD: WD caviar blue 500gb.
Agian, i already bought the PSU,CASE and RAM. With all discounts and MIRs i got the price down to about $320. I would love some input from you guys on my general use/light gaming rig, as well as any first time building advice as well. Thanks for reading and have a great day
I kind of figured that, really appriciate the feedback though. What is the most powerful GPU you think i could run with this PSU? as i do plan on upgrading in a few months and would like to start shopping around for deals. Might upgrade the CPU but it seems like it will handle any game i throw at it moderatley well. As far as the budget for said GPU...just give me the best the PSU can handle
Yeah, i wanted to wait and see what steam roller would ring to the table, but my old PC died and i need it for school. so i decided to get the cheap APU and then upgrade when steam roller comes out. would need a new board but thats fine. Hate to be that guy, but anyone know how many fan headers are on the board i listed? or the board that sn listed? i'm too lazy to do my own reasearch
