Haven't built a computer in about 4 years so it's amazing to see how much the tech world has changed (not to mention how cheap RAM is now!) I haven't updated in so long because I've been fine on my current setup-- but with a few new games that I want coming out (and a small bonus from work) I want to have a system powerful enough to run them at decent settings.
Here's the parts of my current rig that I'm not sure I can get away with not purchasing new things for. Any advice about it and I'm all ears:
Western Digital Caviar Blue 400 GB HD
Powerspec TX366 Micro-ATX Case
And here's a proposed build I have. I appreciate all suggestions and education on why I might be FOS:
CPU: Intel Core i5 2400 - Buying from a friend, should be ~$160.
Others: I do hear I need to also get a fan because the one out of the box for the i5 2400 is not quite as good. I also only have a Khypermedia 48x24 CD-RW-- would an upgrade be necessary if I'm not doing any video editing/DVD watching?
Any other components/parts/things I'm missing, please let me know. The price of everything above is currently running at about $430. I can go slightly over my budget and I'm very open to advice on what should be upgradeded/downgraded to better suit my needs.
