Hi I’m a first time builder and I have looked around for some decent equipment for a first time computer that will able me to upgrade a lot as I get more experience in building a computer on my own as for my first computer I just picked out somewhat cheap items to start off and that looks easy to upgrade in the future. So I was wondering if some one can take a look at what iv selected and let me know if they are compatible with each other and if you know of another item that is either cheaper and better or way better for not much more.
SONY Black 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM IDE DVD-ROM Drive Model DDU1615/B2s – OEM $18.99
Btw thanks for taking a look at what iv selected I’ll mainly be using it to play games and surf the net so I also need a little help on selecting a gfx card but I don’t know if the one that is in the motherboard is good enough to start off? I don’t know what all iv missed so any ones 2 cents is very much appreciated.
-edit- im also starting out completely fresh I have no spear parts or any thing so if also know of a good cheap lcd moniter and all the other stuff I might be missing plz tell me –thanks-
Whats your budget for this pc? Socket 939 is dead, no upgrade path whatsoever. If you want to stick with AMD get an AM2 proc, if you dont mind getting intel i would get an E4300 or E6300. Those can both beat the crap out of amd procs in the same price range.
um i dont realy have a set price yet im just looking for cheap and good enough to run a game not realy looking for top of the line reasion i picked the 939 is cuz i can get the single core now and upgrade to a dual core laiter.
ok i have a question about the psu not sure y u picked that psu that is only 450w that is more expensive then the one i picked that has 500w? how dose that work?btw i dont thank imma do intel cuz i read up on a lot of amd stuff and was told its way better for games and uses less energy
oh ok then sounds reasonable lol. but as for my specs that i picked out im thanking of switching mem sticks to what apt403 picked and the psu would this system be good enough to play games with out much lag?
