Hi guys, I'm a first time poster but I've read many articles and forum answers. I stopped playing PC for a little while now(over a year) because I'm stuck with an Asus EEE PC but i recently got the chance to build my own, gaming PC. My budget is $1000 tops, and that must include the monitor and OS. I tried going with iBuyPower and CyberPC but soon realized that they are too expensive and buying each part is the way to go. So I spent over 4 hours picking parts, reading articles and reviews and this is what I came up with:
Oh yeah, I'd prefer parts from Microcenter because I live close to it. However if the difference is huge I can settle with ordering some parts online
1. Are the parts compatible?
2. Is there a way to knock down a couple of extra bucks, without sacrificing performance?(every dollar counts, I'm not made of money)
3. I'm going to play online games such as WoW, Gunz, Lineage, Minecraft ,etc... (may try Crysis or Dead Space too)- are they going to run smoothly, they dont need to be maxed out,let's say on high?
4. Is 4GB Ram going to be enough or do I need 8?
Well, if you're reading this you've hopefully read through the whole thread, so I thank you for that. I would love your feedback on this setup.
