Hey all, over the past few weeks i have been researching computer parts for my first build.

I am not really asking for any help, but any suggestions would be appreciated. Also I am $24 over my budget, so any changes will have to keep the price change to a minimum.

I will be using this build mostly for gaming with a small amount of video editing for my Youtube channel.

Howdy,

I would give it a low rating unfortunately..

Mainly I have 2 justifications.

The CPU. The i3-2100... You can get an i3-2120 that is a little better for roughly the same price. Its worth it.

The Power Supply. Quite frankly, CoolerMaster sucks for power supplies. They do have a few decent models worth considering, however there good ones have better ones from more reputable brands in the same price ranges. CoolerMaster also has a history of deliberately lying about the capabilities of their power supplies. Stick with brands with better reputations like Corsair, Seasonic, Antec or XFX.

Also, I would consider going with a 6870 video card instead of the 560 non Ti.
