I have never built or even changed a graphics card or anything. My brother gave me a list of parts to get and says its no sweat to build it. I feel ok with building one, im rather handy. What worries me is installing the OS and updating all the componites and trouble shooting any issues. I know very little os the software side of PC's. this is the list he gave me. Any help would be great. Do i build one or buy one? if building one, where to get good parts at good price? if buying one, where? if these parts suck, plz point me in right direction.
It's fairly limited on upgrade ability. You can add a faster processor, more RAM, but the graphics card won't upgrade unless you first upgraded the power supply. Your motherboard also doesn't allow cpu overclocking or RAM with frequencies greater than 1333Mhz. Your build is more of a use for a few years and then build a new one vs. upgrade a few pieces here and there. You can but it would be more effective to just build a new one.
