I going to be building a PC here pretty soon and I wanted to post the parts I'm buying. This will be the first system I've ever built. If anyone has any suggestions or comments to this build please let me know.
ULT-LSP750 ::Ultra LSP750 750-Watt Power Supply - ATX, SATA-Ready, SLI-Ready, 135mm Fan, Lifetime Warranty w/ Registration (5.05 lbs)
O261-9802 : CZ Agility 4 AGT4-25SAT3-256G 256GB Internal Solid State Drive - 2.5" Form Factor, SATA III, 6Gbps, TRIM, Ndurance 2.0 Technology(0.55 lbs)
A466-2412 ::ASUS VE247H 24" Widescreen HD LED Monitor - 1080p, 1920x1080, 16:9, 10000000 :1 Dynamic, 2ms, DVI, HDMI(14.9 lbs)
It's about $934 in my shopping cart plus $60 in mail in rebates. I haven't added an OS yet because I was going to try to use the Windows 7 install disk from my last laptop. Will this work? I also have another 500gb hard that I'll install too for extra storage. I'll be using the computer for gaming, programming, and graphics design. This should be good right?
Thank in advance for any constructive comments, good or bad.
I can tell you that the install disk won't work. They usually have checks to see if Sony or Toshiba (whatever laptop) hardware/BIOS reports, otherwise it just ends up cancelling the install. Though this isn't always the case, the key for it is tied to the laptop (OEM key) and can't be used for your new build. You will need your own (second) COA for the new build.
Thanks for the feedback. What should I be focusing on when I'm looking at a gaming configuration?
I may not be the smartest one on this stuff out there, but when I built my computer, I focused on my memory (Do I have enough), CPU (Is it good enough for my graphics card, run programs), Graphics Card (can it handle the games I want to play) and PSU (enough power to handle system).
Wait until Black Friday to see if you can pick up parts at a discounted price.
