Hi, I am building my first PC and I dont have very much experience so im looking for some advice. Im trying to build an acceptable gaming pc for around 800 Australian dollars. Because I live in Australia it takes an age to receive pc components when I order them online so I am going to get all the parts from a local store and get them to build it for me. Or Should I just build it myself?
In terms of the pc build any advice is greatly appreciated. the things i am worried about is whether the PSU is good enough and if the case is a suitable size. thanks
Well you will want to split up the ram for duel channel so get 2x2gb if your gonna use 4gb and that hard drive is garbage no offense but you do not want a 5400 rpm hdd that is terrible get a 7200rpm wd blue or black or get a ssd. Other than that looks ok.
Your CPU and motherboard are not compatible. (need 1150 socket motherboard)
PSU is pretty low quality. Replace with Antec, XFX, Seasonic, Corsair (ax, hx, tx)
The HDD is a slow laptop HDD. You want a 3.5" 7200rpm drive.
Get win 8.1. It is simple better.
I would suggest you Look on Youtube and type in " How to build a Gaming PC" and there will be step by step videos by people. I suggest you go to newegg youtube channel. They are very helpful on first timers. It will save you alot of money from having someone build it for you.
