Hey guys, first time build here, I'm graduating from highschool soon and have some spare money from work / graduation gift and decided i'd like to build a gaming rig. I've been researching a decent amount the past week and a half and picked out a possible build.

I'd like advice / suggestions / complete replacements on it, I mostly went off good product reviews but I don't really know what would be the best for performance-price with $900

Here's what I chose (feel free to say blahblah this sucks not even compatible lol n00b etcetc), just help me out:

Parts Not Required: Have all the accessories picked out, just not the computer itself (Picked out monitor/keyboard/OS/mouse/thermal paste/etc)

Parts Preferences: No preference really, I just want the best bang for my buck and reliable products.


Overclocking: Maybe, don't really know too much about it, but most likely not, i'd like some room for it just to have the option, but not something dependent on OCing, if you catch my drift.

Thanks again. <:

That Asus 870 is not recommended for multi GPU due to being 16/4 when both it's PCIex16 gen 2.0 lanes are populated and for far less u could actually land HD 6950 2GB and CFable hehe

$712AR
