Additional Comments: I was going to buy a pc from Best Buy but my friend told me its better to build one and after some explaining I gave in. I'm looking for a quiet computer that runs smoothly. I surf the web a lot and download frequently so I would like to be able to multitask easily. I also game a lot so I would like a Graphics card that can tackle almost anything I throw at it.
I mean if you want to spend a little more, you can check out my $850 build, it'll supply you with the i5 2500K, so you can OC in the future if you wanted to. You get the 560 Ti which is a sweet card, a solid board allowing SLI, a PSU that gives you the ability to SLI and you can just switch the case to the NZXT Source 210 $800-ish since the Source is cheaper than the HAF 912 and quieter. http://www.squidoo.com/electronicandmore
Thanks for the help bros! but unfortunately 250 dollars from my budget went towards school. So now i'm left with almost $500 . I'm getting more money soon but I need a computer asap since my Laptop messed up. Should I start a new thread or just continue from here?
