Starter Computer

Building this computer trying to keep the budget around 650$ but no more then 700$ i already have windows 8 OS, since i am student in school. not sure if i want to keep the ssd, but it wont hurt me. will use this computer about 60% for regular school/business applications and 40% for online gaming such as stwor, dc universe and star craft etc. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/nMZg hope to create this rig no later then feb 2013

Thanks in advance for the advice!

  1. That is a sensible build for your usage

    make sure the SSD is set up as a cache drive . Its too small to use as a boot drive
  2. You will see no difference whatsoever in performance between 1600MHz and 1866MHz RAM. Save yourself the extra cash, get this instead.

    Hive cheaps out a lot on +12v rail amperage, it's basically a 450w unit. It's enough for your setup, but yeah I won't suggest paying that much for it.

    Alternately, you may want to consider this combo bundle to save more cash.
