Hello everybody! I'm very knew to building computers and a total noob at this but I've done extensive research on building computers and I think I have the whole sha-bang ready to be made. I just wanted to know if this'll work when everything is connected (and since I'm a noob I'll ask my friend for help who knows his way around building computers.) Here is the list! Thanks! Will like any replies!
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: I won't make my order until the summer.
PRICE RANGE: If the price can be lower than 1200 then that'll make wonders for me!
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming and browsing
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg
OVERCLOCKING: I don't want to overclock my computer.
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No but will look forward if I'm ever rich.
Thanks for all your help
P.S: I would like just one graphics card not two. Not a person who'll want another graphics card.
Another P.S: I am open to any combos or opinions that you may have that could benefit me into buying a cheaper build. Thanks
tomvertommen has a good point. But since you have so much time to prepare, it'd be a good idea to do some research and keep up with what's new. For example, ATM, getting that WD 640GB is not recommended. 500GB-per-platter HDDs, such as Samsung's Spinpoint F3 and Seagate's 7200.12, are faster and run cooler, while consuming less power. Likewise, getting any Nvidia card is also not recommended, as ATI dominates the market in terms of performance per dollar (with an exception at the $200 price point, where neither has a worthwhile card). Unless you religiously avoid ATI cards, there's little reason to even consider an Nvidia card. Another example, the CM Hyper 212+ at $30 is a much better HSF than the AC Freezer 7 Pro, and costs less. It cools better (due to better design and larger fan), comes with a backplate and thermal paste, and doesn't use Intel's revolting push-pin design. It even has free shipping from Amazon.
But again, all of this could potentially change by the summer, which is why you shouldn't be looking for parts just yet.
Ya', I know that the prices will fade away but I just wanted to know if all the specs that put will work. Thanks for the look into the CM Hyper and the HD. I'll have a look in that, and yes I'm religious into Nvidea sorry.
P.S: I never do get ATI because of what has happened to me with that company so I'd rather have Nvidea all the way. No hard feelings.
