Is this a a good build for the money?

Is this a solid build for the money? Its my first time building a computer and i want to make sure all the components are compatible with each other. It will be used mostly for gaming, like skyrim and whatnot.

  1. Best answer
    For some reason you have a tiny motherboard in quite a big case, I would get a full ATX or mATX motherboard. Other than that it looks OK.
  2. Well what mobo would you suggest? I cant seem to find one that is affordable, reliable and supports the rest of my hardware.
    Thanks!
  3. I forgot about the bundles! Thank you very much!
  4. heres another one coming your way


    if you still have money left over, push for a better gpu
  5. Now that you've saved a bit of cash here and there, possibly upgrade your GPU to this:

  6. Well thank you both for all your help! It is greatly appriciated and i will be looking forward to the frugal yet vastly greater upgrades you have shown me!
    Thanks again :D
  7. no problem. most new buyers dont know the ins and outs of bundle pricing on certain items as much. simple changes can yeild better results.
  8. Yeah thanks for showing me that! Im saving tonnns of money from your advice! Plus that graphics card you suggested comes with a free game xD ( although i probably wont play it)
