Been browsing the site here for a few days and it seemed extremely helpful so I figured I'd give it a shot for some advice/tips and what not. As the title says I'm about to start building my first computer myself, and as such I'm not 100% of the compatibility between parts, but naturally I don't want to uselessly burn money, I'd rather have it work the first time around I've been interested in building a PC from scratch for awhile so I figured I'd give it a shot. Gotta learn some time!
Anyways, below I'll post what I'm currently looking at. I looked through all the specs and I *think* everything should be compatible, but like I said being a first-timer I can never be too sure!
My plan is to use it for some lower end-gaming; I'm not horribly competitive online but I'd still like to be to play the games without hitches and on the lowest graphics settings
This is up the air right now, I won't need anything bigger than a 500Gb for sure, and I could definitely manage with a 320 Gb.
Anyways, I do believe that covers it. As I mentioned it doesn't need to be very high-end, just good enough to satisfy a thirst and get a decent idea of where I could go with it. Suggestions, of course, are welcome! Although if you know of a good place to learn more about putting a PC together, that's just as good I'm in this as much to learn as I am to get a computer going.
I'm in Canada, not opposed to paying shipping though if the price of the part is right.
My budget is flexible, but I figure for what I'm aiming for it might be around the 700-800 ish dollar range. Like I said, I'm flexible, but I'm aiming more for what I want than trying to fit under a tidy little price tag.
