hey guys, I'm looking to throw together a budget PC, nothing crazy, but I'm still looking for something better than stock. I've thrown together a few parts on microcentres website and I'm just looking for some compatibility suggestions as well, perhaps some cheaper versions of things, and whatever else im missing. thanks very much.

  1. i should also add that im looking to spend 600-700, no moniter
  2. What will you use this PC for?

    If it is for gaming, you need to rethink the cpu and graphics card.

    Read this article:

    Also, I would never buy a $36 500w psu, never mind it comes with a case.
