So I building my computer for the first time and I finally picked out all my parts, but before I order I just want to make sure that the hardware I decided on is good and that it will work with all the other hardware.
So this is my set up for my new comp, if this set up is good then please say so.
If you have any suggestions on better hardware, or maybe some of this hardware won't work together, do say so.
My budget is around $600 for the computer, but I already on the GPU, PSU, speakers, mouse and keyboard.
So the hardware I have listed will only run me around $490. I also plan on buying a decent monitor.
Well if you already have the PSU and GPU at least get a decent hard-drive like the one I posted above... stay away from seagate drives if you can......
other than that you are fine.....
Wow, I've used Seagate for years, no problems. For a long time they were the only ones with a 5 year warranty on their consumer level drives. I know they had some issues with their Gen 11 drives (primarily above 750GB), but they've seemed to sort them out with their Gen 12's. Not only that but Seagate consistently perform at the top of their class. I don't have anything against Western Digital, but I'm not sure turning someone away from any brand without justification is wise. In fact the only drive I have ever had fail within it's warranty period was a Western Digital drive. It was awhile ago, and I wouldn't let it stop me from getting another (actually I have purchased from them since). I can say the Western Digital's RMA process was excellent.
To the OP, use whatever brand HDD your comfortable with and whatever you think gives you more bang for the buck.
