Hello guys. I would like to start off with clarifying that I am inexperienced when it comes to building PC's. I understand how the process works and which components are needed, but I have not yet built one. I do, once I obtain a good sum of money, plan to build a high end gaming rig in the near future. But for now, I get to practice with a desktop. My family has a fairly old and lacking desktop computer and they want to upgrade. I told them that I could find all the necessary parts and build one myself, a PC that surpasses the stock desktops at chain stores, yet retains the same pricing.
So I went on Amazon and found parts I think would work well for I need. I am fairly familiar with Intel and Nvidia components and therefore have chosen to stick to an Intel/Nvidia build. I also understand that a GPU isn't necessary for desktops, but I thought of including at least a low profile one just incase. My brother plays mine craft a lot and I'm considering adding a blu-ray drive as well so a GPU would be helpful. I also know what sort of performance to expect from my particular pick. I will list the parts below, and their amazon links. I would love to hear from you guys. I want to know whether all the parts are compatible with each other and which, if any, should be changed.
Also, some things to keep in mind: I want to go with a quad core processor and at least 8gb of RAM. I picked a hybrid drive because of the combination of great performance and flexible pricing and I prefer a modular PSU. It will be running windows 7. I'll probably be using a DVI port to connect to the monitor. The price limit is somewhere around $600-$700. I already have windows 7, a keyboard, mouse and an optical drive. Light gaming is intended. Let me know what you guys think and what I should change. Thank you all who contribute!
