Hello all, I am planning on building a cheap ($650-700, £450-500) gaming pc over the summer. I decided I would pick out a build and get your opinions on it. There very well may be errors, incompatabilities etc, so please read it carefully . I have gone slightly over my budget, so any suggestions to bring it down would be awesome. I have chosen a motherboard that supports DDR3 ram, which I am undecided on at the moment and seems to be quite expensive. I was also unsure how much would be necessary.
What I need it for
I plan on playing games such as GTA IV, Bad company 2 and other intensive games at a resoloution of 1920x1080. I am aware i will need pretty good specs, however I DO NOT need to play at max settings, mid range is fine, although I do want to keep my resoloution.
The build I have chosen doesnt include a case, so I need advice on what I can change for what, why I don't need something etc. I am fairly sure you have guessed I am hardly and expert in these matters, however I am interested in building a computer, and love playing games on 'em!
Awesome, I beleive you have helped me before Batuchka Thanks, One thing, it is a SATA dvdrw isn't it? Love the other suggestions :P. Oh and the Ram was quite expensive, with case and new selections its now £539, which I think I can manage!
