I am relatively new to computer building. This being said, I figured out that I would like to use the Inwin Dragonslayer case. The main purpose of this computer would be mainly for school work, but I would also like to be able to play games on it.
I was looking at AMD Dual-Core A6-5400K 3.6GHz Radeon HD 7540D APU for the processor, but I have no idea what to get for the PSU, RAM, or the Motherboard.
I was really looking a budget of around 350-400 dollars. Any advice, tips, or help would be greatly appreciated.
What games are you intending to play. The APU's are ok and do have the best onboard graphics, however, for decent gaming you may want to look at a Pentium with a dedicated card.
Are there any parts you already have and does that cost include OS?
No right now I don't have any parts purchased yet. No this price range does not include the OS. The games I was thinking about playing are games like Starcraft 2, Diablo 3, etc. I do have an older ati radeon card lying around, but I was not really looking into getting a dedicated card as of yet.
Alright so this is the best I could come up with. I refuse to recommend anything I wouldn't feel comfortable using myself so you may not accept this suggestions, but here it goes. Your $80 case makes it rough to get close to your price range at all. I would suggest an AMD A10 to get the best onboard graphics possible and faster RAM to boost that speed.
