I recently worked up a build for the $600 range in an attempt to get a relatively cheap gaming computer. I was hoping to get a last triple check to make sure my parts were compatible, would have enough power and cooling, and that none of the parts are crap.
Sorry I'm a total noob when it comes to building computers, this was a build that a friend picked out for me if I'm honest.
I'm pretty overwhelmed but how much would I have to change assuming I switched to the H67 and i3? Also would it not make sense in my price range to go for the i5, or is that just not where I should be focusing my money? I was originally planning on having only 4g of ram but figured I'd post the build as he sent it to me.
All of the parts you recommended I've heard good things about, I'm mostly worried about making sure they'll all work together with the power supply and mobo.
I've been reading up as much as possible the past few days, but I'm eager to jump right in :-D I'll try to slow my roll, and any help is certainly appreciated.
Sorry that was a bit informal. Check out my build guide for $600 http://www.squidoo.com/electronicandmore
If you can spare $50 more (putting you @ $650) I spend the extra and get the i5 2400. I do mention it in my guide.
Alright I considered your build guide and I have been recommended similar parts in various places so I'm not too worried about the quality of the parts. Perhaps this is the last run through I'll need, but the parts I'm looking at now are::
