ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I want this to be as cheap as possible while keeping quality, also i plan on upgrading later. The only part i dont mind spending more on is the video card. This is my first build so im not too sure if everything is compatible or not and i want to make sure i picked decent brands. I plan on playing mostly shooters and maybe the new star wars MMORPG . Thanks for the help in advance.
ok that totals up to 369 w/o rebates. so i have some room to get a decent video card and maybe get a better RAM. So
which of these 2 are better and will i be able to play newer games smoothly with it. Also how big of a difference will the RAM make?
