So this is the first PC I've ever built so I wanna make sure i make the correct choice so i don't blow any money or buy something that is compatible. Any help that you guys can provide will be greatly appreciated!
The first I was going to go with a combo buy of my MOBO and CPU
Okay so I was going to save a couple bucks and use the old HDD from my other laptop its only like 250GB-500GB don't remember, will this be all right?
Also lastly I was considering putting extra money into my GPU instead of getting an I5-2500k because i think ill just upgrade later in the year (2013) these were the 3 GPUs i was looking at, I don't really understand the difference among the variations of E.G. gtx 660ti and the HD 7870s can anyone explain please? Also will this mid tower fit all this, i know its supposed to be a smaller MOBO so I'm not too worried.
Thanks for the reply, do you think i could just use an external hard drive for the time being then? Around 600$ Tops $700
What do I gain from doing it the opposite way? I was looking at it in the sense that if I got the i5 first i would need to buy an extra cooling fan and a better PSU since I would most likely overclock it, oh and would OC make my graphics card run better than too or would it need OC capabilities like the CPU
