Solved

Last post before starting my first build

This is what I have as a 1300 dollar build.

This is my first build and I really am not very knowledgeable as of now with different components and what not.

If there is any way to make this cheaper without sacrificing performance or better without making it more expensive I'd love some tips.

Thanks

  3. Thanks for the response. So just a cheaper hard drive and video card. Do you think doing that would sacrifice any performance?

  4. nope not at all, its just the same performance. i changed 4gbs gpu to 2gbs because you dont need 4gbs on 1080p monitor
  5. And you absolutely do NOT need an aftermarket cooler. You can't OC that CPU. Stock HS/Fan will more than fine. $30 back in your pocket.
  6. ^ yes if you can bear the noise from stock cooler
