I bought the following set up off Newegg for $500...I have a monitor/mouse/keyboard/2TB HD and an old vid card what I will be upgrading next. Looking at the build, what would you think will be the next thing I nee to upgrade Thank you ahead of time and all input is appreciated. If anyone had installation issues with any of these components let me know, this is my first build.
assuming you bought the shellshocker deal a few days ago. all of it will work together(why would newegg combo stuff that wouldn't work together). the main things you want to look into first is.
1. Get a GPU
2. Get a storage hardrive. 60gb ssd is essentially bootdrive + few games
3. after above has been prioritize, its more optional stuff, the next step would be cpu cooler so you can actually overclock the
as for gpu choices, you have the choice of either going for one strong gpu(as the hive 650w should be more than enough power to power it) or 2 single sata connector gpus(i.e 6850/7850) by getting one now and another in some future date. I would recommend getting one gpu though.
