I'm very new to this and i was wondering if i could get some help. I want to build a gaming pc with a budget of $550 to $650 (but i would like to keep it below 600). The games i will be playing on this are not all that demanding (at least not like crisis) i will be playing games like WoW, stagecraft 2, guild wars 2, and maybe even a little dc universe. Here's what i came up with so far… (i am very new and for all i know i could have everything wrong and this computer will break in a week.)
It all comes out to about $552 to $652 depending on which OS i can use. Please let me know where i can save money but keep similar performance. Also can i upgrade all these parts in the future? And please let me know which OS i should use. AM i missing anything and i mean ANYTHING (i already hav a monitor, mouse, and keyboard, and an HDMI cable to hook up the monitor to the pc). Lastly, is there anything i can do to make it better without costing much more?
* If you install AMD AM3 CPU on this motherboard, the system bus speed will downgrade from HT3.0 (5200MT/s) to HT1.0 (2000 MT/s) spec; however, the frequency of AM3 CPU will not be impacted. Please refer "CPU Support List" for more information.
the only problem with the build you gave me (aznshinobi) is that it is goin over my budget when i buy the OS but thanks for the suggestion... so is i use the as rock 880GM my rig is complete or do i need to make other changes?
No, that's a DDR3 ram. I don't suggest following that build. It's very old and clearly hasn't been updated since the AMD Phenom II's came out. That build could play Crysis but newer games, that CPU couldn't handle them. Your better off following my link's 600$ build in mah siggy
