Hello everyone, I was looking to join the world of PC gaming and was looking for advice on making a PC. I am kind of on a tight budget so I was looking to maybe build one rather then buy a PC pre-built, but I am not sure which is cheaper. The builds I have made on come out to around 700 cutting corners on things like DVD drives and such that I already have in my computer now. I thought maybe it would be cheaper to find parts, and I have a motherboard I think I could afford with proper budgeting:
However, I still need a casing, graphics card, sound card, and RAM cards that are all compatible, so any suggestions? Thanks in advance to all those that reply!
