More about final check build find errors
  1. What are you doing with this build?
    If you are gaming I would rethink your cpu/gpu and think about an intel cpu and more money invested in the gpu to achieve performance. This will help show some performance comparisons:,3106-5.html
  2. More just general productivity. Some light gaming like minecraft, Crusader Kings 2, Civ 5 , etc. Still I just want the machine to be fast and future proof. Is this a good build for that?
  3. Without question the build you have wil work fine for the purposes you listed. Think about an AM3+ mobo - that will let you upgrade to FX chips down the road. Something like this:
    Also, you do not have an Operating System listed; go with windows 7 (its like $95)
  4. Thanks so much for your help.
