Hey guys, so I am currently planning my first ever PC. I am aiming to get a basic gaming machine, as cheap as possible. The aim was £300-£400 (though I seem to have gone a bit over that.) After extensively research (on this site and others) this is what I have decided upon so far:
You think thats a bad PSU? I admit the main reason I picked that was one was that it was cheap and seemed to have decent reviews.
Just how much difference would an SSD make? I did consider getting one and putting windows and the old republic onto it, but it seemed an unnessiary luxuary. You think it would make a noticeable difference?
(Oops I submitted that before it was ready and apparently I can't edit it)
I realize the PSU/GPU may be a little much for a basic machine but I was hoping that spending a little more on that would make the machine last a bit longer, the machine is primarily for gaming and I thought those two parts would mean it could still run modern games in 2/3 years.
Ok so I spent more than I intended to but I think I have now got a very solid PC. At least I don't see any part that is bad (considering the budget). Like I said this is my first try at building a PC, I hope I have done a decent job selecting parts.
