Does this seem like a good build for starters? Moderate gaming/Low Price

Hello, beginner here to the building of computers... Here's what I have so far:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... as the case,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... as the CPU,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... as the motherboard,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... as the graphics card,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... because I want to access my wifi from a desktop.

Can you also guide me to a guides that help me with the buying process? Also, am I missing anything I NEED? And what am I missing that is optional? Do I need a power supply or does it come with the case? If i need a power supply does this suffice? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Thanks!


EDIT: Also, was thinking about using Ubuntu as my OS because it is free... Anything wrong with this/Does this need to be compatible with anything?

You don't need full tower case when buying micro mobo. Tell us what's your budget and what games you plan to play.

PS: you are missing HDD, RAM and yes, you need PSU. As I said, tell us the budget and we'll try to build something compatible.

Thanks so much! Yeah, I recently realized I was missing a HDD and RAM, thank you! Sorry to be so ignorant to this, but what is PSU?

Also, I plan on playing League of Legends and Minecraft and MAYBE some less intensive Steam games like Garry's Mod.
My budget would be like 300 - 450. I know its low, but hopefully I will upgrade as time goes on. Thank you!

Windows 7/8 is a lot better for gaming so I would go with that OS. I can help put something together because all of the parts in your build are either outdated/not poor quality.

Motherboard: ASRock FM2A55M-DGS Micro ATX FM2 Motherboard ($54.98 @ SuperBiiz)
Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($52.99 @ Newegg)

If you can spare a little bit more then I would change the CPU to a Athlon ii x4 750k and add a HD 7750.

Wow. I will have to look into all of this when I get a chance. Thanks a lot!

And when you say I can add a HD 7750 I assume that is a graphics card? But this isn't necessarily required, correct? I can go without one, my FPS just won't be as high?

Yeah, that looks solid. Good eye on the RAM RazerZ, I would've gone with 2x2, but 2x4 G.Skill Ares 1866MHz for that price is a steal IMO.

I forgot to mention that I am going to need to wirelessly access my internet instead of using an Ethernet cord. Should I simply do this with a USB that has wifi like what I linked is there a different way it should be done? Also, will having my internet be wireless affect speeds?

You could add a usb, but I would prefer a PCI or PCI-e wireless network adapter so it won't be sticking out of the case all the time. It will affect internet speed, but not by much.

Okay, the PCI/PCI-e sounds a lot better. This connects to the motherboard, correct? If so I am having difficulty finding which one its is compatible with the motherboard you suggested. (PCI or PCI-e)

Sorry to bug you, but what is the difference between the two CPUs you suggested? Because right now the Athlon ii x4 750k is cheaper than the AMD A10-5800k. Also, the AMD A10-5800k has integrated graphics... If I want to update that in the future will it become a problem? Also, is it okay that the Athlon ii x4 doesn't have integrated graphics?

If you get the athlon you'll need to buy a graphics card for it to work.

If you can spare a little bit more then I would change the CPU to a Athlon ii x4 750k and add a HD 7750.


I've decided to change the CPU and get a graphics card but there is sooo many out there. Like even for the ONE you suggested there are several variations. What does the core clock mean? And how much memory do I need in it?

a 1 gb 7750/ 7770 should be fine it costs around $100 but comes to $50-70 after rebates. Go with whichever one matches the color scheme and you feel looks the best, because they really are all around equal performance. Clock speed is the speed it runs at. If your getting a $100 video card I would go with the 7850 2GB version, but if you're going with the $50-$70 1GB will do fine.

Okay, thanks. And hopefully my last question is what tutorial would you recommend? I watched the Newegg one but I didn't know if you could direct me into anything better.

I sincerely apologize for bugging you again. I have a few more questions. Based upon my reasearh the motherboard you suggested has no HDMI? Can you tell me one that does? Or does my graphics card have HDMI output?
Also, regarding the Wireless Network Adapter, I am getting a new router and it will be capable of AC. Do you know of any good ac wireless network adapters.
Finally, what is the difference between the following: - 1 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot (PCIE1 @ x16 mode)
- 1 x PCI Express 2.0 x1 slot. Will I need to look out for if one can go in the 16 or if it is PCI express will it work in both?
So sorry for all the questions. Was just finalizing things and I wanted the highest internet connection possible.
