hi... looking to build a half decent gaming rig, and the money and parts and whatever will be coming from my birthday which is next month, and my budget for the actual comp is $550 (can be stretched?) and the screen is around $160 but im getting that from here (england) cause apparently they dont work form america because of the voltage?
im not sure if ive done the conversions right so they may be a bit wonky :') and ive chosen all the parts form scan.co.uk cause im not sure theyll work from america
here are the names of the parts ive chosen already...
You would be much better off going with a i3-2100 and H61/H67. It's faster than a Phenom II quad core in gaming, and will eat that dual core for breakfast. Not to mention it will be upgradeable in the future.
