I am looking to build my first computer by myself, and need some advice. I want to make it a computer capable of doing games, but as I don't game too much or really want to play games with that high of a graphics need, I want to do it on a budget. That being said, I am looking for some good power + something that will last me a while.
So, my question to you is: Please help me find a suitable MoBo and video card. The stuff listed here totals to $560, and I'd like to keep it under 750 if at all possible.
However, I want a good quality MoBo + a good 1gig Video card, if at all possible. However, if you can recommend other parts that are just as good as above but cheaper, that will also help, as well.
(P.S. - As soon as possible is much preferred, as I would like to order some of the stuff today due to the deals! So please tell me if you think that processor is very good, because I will order it before everything else just to save and have it)
That combo deal with the ASUS MoBo and Phenom 965 black is excellent!
So all I will need is a 520W for this? Would it be more beneficial to get a larger wattage just for upgrade purposes? I don't plan on upgrading for a few years, but wouldn't more wattage run it better as well? I was never too sure on PSUs and how much you need.
Also, I'm guessing all these parts will work fine together, huh?
Yep they will work fine. You don't need more wattage, 520W is overkill already. Only if you get a crossfire motherboard and plan to add later a second video card you will need something like 600-650 watts but with the other mobo + more powerful PSU would be over $750:
