Computer building forum

Okay well I've never built a computer before so I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing... Tell me if I'm doing anything wrong and if something is not compatible with the other.




Video Card

RAM and Processors

Hard Drive
Yet to be chosen

Okay so I have most of the parts planned out, but I don't know that it's all compatible. Also I need to know if I am able to install that video card into the motherboard despite the fact that it already has an on-board video card. A different motherboard is fine with me if it's around the price range. Lastly I need a cheap but quality Hard Drive from Newegg. My budget is around $600 for the entire computer, so I don't have much left for the Hard Drive. About $50 but I can go higher I suppose (Unless I find a Shellshocker deal from NewEgg like I did the PSU it's not looking good...) All help is appreciated, thanks.

  1. I wouldn't suggest that MB, it has an ancient chipset. Consider this:

    That's a good PSU but not a bargain. This is less expensive and will las into Video card upgrades.

  2. Okay I already bought the power supply (cost about $35.00 from a shellshocker+Mail-in rebate)
    The Motherboard looks really good, I suppose I will just have to save up a bit more and not cut corners on it thanks for the suggestion
    I'm not sure which case I'll be getting but I was actually looking at that one too

    Thanks for your help! Are all of my current items (If I swap my Motherboard with yours) compatible?
  3. What do you plan to do with your computer?
  4. It's going to be a Gaming computer. Hence the video card, which shouldn't require replacing any time soon...
