First time builder needs help [under 700$] Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: October 15, 2012 12:38 PM in Systems Share bobmakers October 15, 2012 11:17:18 AM Hello fello forum-goers. I am looking to build a computer for the first time and am looking for a bit of help piecing one together that will run well. Approximate Purchase Date: Sometime within the next couple of weeks Budget Range: 600-700 before rebates System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, Surfing the net, watching movies, multitasking such as two of these tasks at once Parts Not Required: Speakers, mouse, OS Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg, amazon Country: US Parts Preferences: preferably intel as I've heard they are better for gaming given the budget. Also a red cherry mx keyboard if possible Overclocking: Maybe if comes with a program to do it like the previous laptop i have owned had a program that came with the APU SLI or Crossfire: Probably not because i have no idea about it Monitor Resolution: preferably a nice big size 21" or bigger (i know not really a resolution given) Additional Comments: preferably to have it cool as possible without the need for water cooling. Being quiet is a plus but not needed any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you More about : time builder 700 excella1221 October 15, 2012 11:38:25 AM Here you go!
