Hi , I am attempting to build an PC specifically for high quality games. Basically, a gaming computer but i'm also on a tight budget and noticed the components I want to use for building such a computer is a too much for me to handle so I was wondering if these substitutions would let high end games pass by smoothly;
Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 140mm Fan,
1x Rear 120mm Fan, option Fans-2x Side 120mm Fan
Cheaper suggestions that will perform the same(or even better) for replacing some components are welcomed with open arms.I would like to spend 500 -600 dollars on this even though, sadly, when I summed out the total cost it was a little bit above 1000. So.. suggestions and where to buy it for a handsomely low price would be a great great big help. Also, please leave a detailed explanation of why I should replace the component with your suggestion. It would help an inexperienced, novice such as I greatly.
OH, and one last question, would these components run smoothly on games such as Half Life 2 or All Points Bulletin: Reloaded?
Well, I hate to say it, but that motherboard and processor are not going to work together. You need a LGA 1155 socket to run a Sandy Bridge CPU. I also feel that you're spending too much of your budget on the mobo. You should be able to pick up a decent P67 or Z68 board for between 100 and 140.
