First time building a computer, just want to make sure that I'm not making a foolish mistake picking my parts. I plan on doing some gaming, but I don't mind using minimum specs on high-demand games. I really appreciate your input.
All these parts are from newegg - the prices include shipping:
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz $105
ASRock 880GMH/U3S3 AM3+/AM3 AMD 880G $84.50
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) $52
HIS H675F1GD Radeon HD 6750 1GB $105
Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB $55
LG CD/DVD Burner $20
hec Zephyr MX 750 750W $65
HEC Blitz Black Steel Edition ATX Mid Tower Computer $42
Total: $528.50 - My budget is $450-$550
I should point out that I already have monitor, OS, keyboard and mouse.
it all looks good to me.
i personally would save for another month. your less than $100 from an fx series processor but if you cant wait this will do.
the 6 core is suposed to be $180-190 so i think the 4 cores will be in the $130-160 range.
