Hello people. I am a brand new member of this site and i was hoping you guys could help me out with my first pc build. I am primarily a console gamer, but i have been looking to get into pc gaming for quite some time now. Also, im going to be including basically every last component of the build, for maximum feedback potential. Anyway, thanks a lot in advance, and here are the specs:
Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
A tip for you: If you want more replies, don't list things that way. Granted you did it better than
many others, in that you changed the link names. What you should do, for the best results, is to list
the component name outside each link. People are lazy, don't have time and whatnot else, to check each
and every link to get an overview of your system. I'm glad you're coming into PC gaming though. You might
want to add Star Citizen to the list too. What's your budget? You've picked some pretty excellent parts otherwise;
except the Apevia PSU. Go for a 600W or 750W PSU from brands like Corsair or XFX. You'll also be wanting a better
mouse and keyboard. At least the mouse. You can also forfeit the sound card. Just use the motherboards onboard
Audio. It'll be fine for you; unless you're either an audiophile or have a great headset to match.
yeah didn't think about it that way. I assumed people would want links as opposed to a wall of text w/ strange numbers and such. Also, thanks for bringing start citizen to my attention, man that game looks good. could you recommend a better mouse and keyboard combo? i kinda picked those without too much consideration, as most of my pc experience has been with laptop trackpads. could you also tell me why the psu isn's as good as the other parts?
If you're not doing SLI or CF then no, you won't need that PSU.
If you feel the mouse would be good for that, then go ahead. There aren't so many abilities though are there?
I think the buttons are more for MMOs wherein you have lots of abilities.
I hope you checked out the link with the other mice. Programmable keys are quite good in many cases.
well there are only 4 abilities per hero, but the gameplay is fast and twitch based so i might need them. that logitech g700 looks great though. well i suppose thats it then. I'll figure out the mouse later. it looks like my build is basically finalized now, and man is it looking great. Thank you so much for the help, it was great!
