This is my newest build choices just wanting to get others input on compatibility, experience with the brands, and if I am spending too much on the system thanks for all the comments ahead of time.
The system will be used in order of importance for: Gaming, surfing the web, having muliple apps running at once on dual monitors, watching movies, listening to music, and schoolwork. I want to stay with an AMD build not the biggest fan of intel mainly bc of the integrated graphics with their processors. I know I have a graph card on here but this is my first build so I will probably be making more builds if this one is successful.
I will not be changing the graph card due to hours of research over the internet for the price I want to stay in and performance feedback this is the card I will be using. The feedback I will appreciate is compatibility, experience with product brands, sufficient psu, and mobo for future upgrades. PSU needs to be able to additionally handle 2 monitors. Thanks again ahead of time for feedback.
*additional note* I will have to buy from amazon as I have a store card there and I am trying to build up my credit so if better parts are found could they be posted from that site. I am looking to buy this build today at the latest tomorrow*
