Solved

Can you help me with my first build? I'm new to tomshardware and I really need second opinions on my parts list.

Hi, as the title says I would like a second opinion on my first parts list for my first build. I have a $1200 AUD budget and I really would like to stick near that. I can go $100 over possibly.

Thank you in advance!

Here is the parts list:

    What do you recommend upgrading in the future and is this list future proof? The games I'd be playing at the moment would be, CS:GO, Call of Duty, Rust, Wizard101, Minecraft, Mount&Blade.
  5. Also, could you recommend a good monitor to go with that?
  6. Its hard to say which component will be the first out of date (needing change) but this PC should run for couple of years no problem with games you play

    I hope is not to much http://au.pcpartpicker.com/part/lg-monitor-22mp55hqp

    Hmm $155 seems alright. I have one at home that my dad bought to replace our old monitor on our old computer. I wonder if that could be used? I'd have to get the exact name of it so I can see if its compatible. The monitor is around a year old.
  8. If its 1 year old it is 100% compatible

    Ok. Well when I get the money for the parts (christmas) and after I build it. I'll find out if the monitor works, even though you said it should.

    Thanks :D
