I'm looking at getting a good custom PC soon, but I have never built a PC before. I'd like some advice on what build I should go with.
Some of my preferences:
-Decent sized SSD Drive, at least 100 GB probably
-Good CPU and GPU Capable of running games at high fps.
-Maybe overclock capabilities, I've never done this but might in the future.
-Preferably Intel, but if there's an AMD CPU that can increase performance for the same Price it's fine
-Good cooling system
-Other basic parts like Optical drives, sound cards, wireless cards. These don't seem as important to me but I have no idea what I should be getting.
This PC will be the first quality PC I own, and I'll probably get it in a month or two. I'll probably be keeping this PC for at least 5 years. Also, I'm looking at getting the parts on NCIX and using price match feature to keep the price down, and just pay them $50 to assemble it.
if it a higher wattage then you can sli or crossfire it. cosair and sesonic have the lowest doa rate and when you buy the higher end units the silver and gold the parts used are higher qality then the bronze units so having a doa is less and having it run for years gets better. but if you look at two units from the same company one bronzs and one gold they may use the same parts almost just one has better energy savings at set loads. but paying 50 or more for better power savings could be a waste in a fixed build.
