I’ve worked out this setup but I’m not sure how capable it is, or if I’m missing something that would make it either better for minimal extra $, or cheaper with no loss in performance. Any parts in particular I should skimp/splurge on?
The idea is to build the best quality gaming PC possible for the lowest amount of money possible, able to run high settings on games such as The Witcher, Skyrim, Tomb Raider, Metro Last Night. I plan to (carefully) overclock as much as I can.
You should get all the relevant cables with the equipment however I had to purchase an extra SATA cable. If you want wireless capability then you will need either a PCI wireless adapter or USB adapter. Also unless you have another PC to make windows install via a USB stick then purchase an optical drive as windows comes on a DVD. Just buy the cheapest if you will rarely use it. I personal would buy a 2TB HDD, it sounds overkill but you will soon fill it but thats down to personal preference.
Everything on the list looks good and you will have a nice machine when its built.
