This is my first build so please bear with me.
These are some parts I put together through a little bit of research earlier this week. I don't know computer parts too well, so I'm not sure if they will be compatible with each other but hopefully some of you guys can give me your opinions or suggestions on the parts and build.
Like I said I'm not too familiar with computer parts so I'm sorry if it some parts doesn't make sense, which is why I posted this in hoping people would offer their opinions on the build and recommendations for parts.
So in regarding to your post, do you recommend a different psu? I don't know anything about psu in general.
I see Thanks.
I must have read it wrong sorry, I've been studying all day so I'm pretty exhausted right now.
Thanks again Why_me for the suggestion, my apology for sounding defensive. I will definitely look into that.
Oh my bad didn't notice the 600-800 in there. My price range is $1000-1400 after taxes if I need to i'll extend it $1500.
I know the items I posted total will be over $1400 but I'm hoping to buy them when they are on sale or something.
