Parts Preferences: by brand or type : No preference
I've been researching a custom PC for awhile now, but I get stuck when trying to select certain parts( motherboard, graphics card)
This is the baseline I'm starting with, but I'm open to adjusting if there's better value elsewhere:
CPU - AMD FX8350
Storage : 120GB SSD, 1TB Hard drive (any reliable brand would do)
RAM: 16 GB
I don't do a lot of gaming currently, but I use some resource intensive programs so that's why I've decided on those specs. I'm currently using a 4 year old Mac with 8GB of ram.
I don't really have any preference on the other parts (outside of a monitor - need something in the 24 inch range) When I try to pick all the parts out my self I always go over budget because I don't know where I can save some money.
One other question, I'm not against building this myself, but would it be simpler if I just used the $50 assembly option on ncix?
