So i'm planning on making my first build <NOOB ALERT>
Let me start buy saying what i'm going to use this build for;
I simply want this computer to run very fast, a little bit of gaming so it should be able to handle games at a mediocre level, and maybe very, VERY light OC'ing (mainly the CPU). My budget is no more than around 950 or even 1000 if its really worth it. I know a top of the line system is allot more than that but i dont want a top of the line system. Oh and by the way it doesn't matter to me if its a Intel build or a amd build.
So here are the components i want inside:
SSD (80 or less gb nothing crazy its simply too run windows 7 and like 2 games)
HHD (more than 120gb)
dvd-rom reader ( and burner if it fits budget )
windows 7 home

dont include monitor, speakers, keyboard or mouse

All right, thank you! :D
