Hi, I have never built my own computer before, but after hearing all the positive things about doing it yourself I decided to give it a go. I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to computers but I did some research and picked out all the components that I want for it. I'm on a budget so my price range is between 800 and 900 dollars. My current pc is an HP a203w that I bought some six years ago so I hope to be able to use this computer's optical drive for my new build and I also plan on reusing the hardd drive. Anywho, heres my build.
I'm a gaming gal so I want to be able to play some things on it annd I don't want to have to deal with frame rates that are in the low 20s' anymore. ;(
Also my room gets kinda warm so the case needs to have really good air flow.
I included a better case, PSU, motherboard, and video card. The Corsair 300R has better airflow than the HAF 912 does. Plus you also get front USB 3.0. Alternately check out the Antec 100 and Fractal Design Arc MIDI for the same price.
Ah okay, thank you for the help! I'll check out those two cases and see which one is best for me. Thanks again.
The Sapphire card makes me worried though since some people have a black screen issue. Makes me nervous about buying it.
Don't believe what the store reviews tell you - they're baseless 90% of the time. Most people forget to do simple things like update the driver software to correct issues like this. I have two Sapphire cards in my system and they're fine. I have yet to run into that issue.
