So, this was my first time ever finding parts to build a computer, and I wanna see how I did and just get a final check on everything. Mostly with this computer I'll be playing some older games like ArmA and stuff like that. Maybe some newish games that came out in 2010/11. And of course, school work.
Well, i'm not sure i'd go with that motherboard to be honest. It's really not going to give you a lot in the way of future upgrade possibilities. An ASRock Extreme 4, however, would give you 4 ram slots vs the 2 on that motherboard, as well as the ability to SLI/CrossFire Later on. Those options tend to come at a higher premium though. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
That cpu, for $10 more you could get the higher clocked i5-2400, so that's worth looking at. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... This CPU has an additional $10 off with promo code EMCNEJJ42 through the end fo 5/17, so if you buy soon, you actually get the better processor for the same price as the one you had picked out.
I've heard some bad things about the power color brand of gpus and i think it's worth it to look at dropping another $10 to get a more reliable brand.
Not to pick your build apart, cause i'm pretty sure you were trying to do what you could to meet a specific budget, and i respect that completely!
