Hey Guys, I'm starting out with a brand new home-built computer that I' probably going to use for gaming, video editing, etc. I've got these parts that I'm about to order, but want to make sure that the geniuses at Tom's forums can certify it as a good idea (I am a beginner at this after all). Here are the parts:
You seem alot more "techy" than me at this so these parts should be a lot better. Are these the parts you suggested? Also shouldn't the CPU price be a lot higher because it's a quad core vs. a duel core?
The rest of the parts you guessed correctly! The X4 620 is a budget quad-core at a great price, which is why I recommended it. It is not as powerful as the Intel quads or Phenom II X4's but is the BEST $ valued quad-core. AMD's are ideal for budget minded buiders, as they typically provide the best bang for the buck.
