In brief, this is the first time I am going to build a PC configuration, so I'll need some help. The PC primary purpose will be software development, but I intend to play games, too, and wish I do not feel so much restrictions when it comes to performance.
I've done some research, but as I've already mentioned, this is my first build, so there might be some incompatibility between the parts. I'll appreciate any help and suggestions, so here is my built so far:
mobo: ASROCK Z87 EXTREME4, Z87, DDR III - 160$
So, my budget is about 600$, right now, excluding the GPU (which will be brought as an upgrade after month or two, and the RAM which I already have). I am not counting the fans and cpu cooler (not the stock one), cuz I don't know if I need them - probably, someone would give me advice here, anyway I won't include their price, too.
One last thing, I noticed that the case (CM Elite 430) does not have a slot for 2.5'' HDD's, which I think might be a blocker if I decide to buy a SSD?
