I am the newest it gets to building my own computer. I have a $600 dollar budget. I don't even know what I am supposed to be looking for. I have an idea, but nothing to really go off of.
If this great computer can give me a build or some tips would be greatly appreciated
@excella- The XFX version of the 7850 you have posted is vastly inferior to the MSI. The MSI has 2GB of dedicated VRAM as opposed to the XFX's 1. The MSI is clocked 90MHz faster, and it has a ton of headroom to overclock because it has a better cooler. In addition to overclock headroom, it is cooler and quieter.
Not ragging on the 965 at all, it was and still is a good CPU. However, if the OP ever decides to up the system to a better gaming system, he would probably want to go intel and have to buy a new mobo.
^Seeing as this is a budget build, I doubt he has more than 1 monitor so there's not really a point for more than 1gb of VRAM. True the MSI has a higher stock clock, probably a better cooler too with the TwinFrozr technology, but we don't really know if he's gonna overclock anyway.
About the CPU, upgrading won't be a problem since the motherboard is fairly new generation. I find it a bit early to tell whether he'll need to go Intel for an upgrade since AMD's next line of CPUs is just around the corner and from the reviews so far, it looks good.
