Ok, so I've been using a modified Dell Dimension E521 for years now. I've decided that it's time to upgrade into something modern for gaming and normal surfing. I'm going to go about making my first ever computer from scratch. Here are the parts and prices I've chosen. Please let me know if the prices are reasonable and if the parts are compatible.
I won't be needing a PSU, Optical Drive, or an OS as I will be taking them from my old computer.
If you have any suggestions of hardware that is a better deal, please let me know. My budget is $400.
For the OS, I plan to take the hard drive from my old computer and make it the primary hard drive, and the Western Digital hard drive will be my secondary. Will I need to buy a certain type of data cable to add another hard drive or will it come with the motherboard?
this graphic card will not play any game from 2011 and ----->
All the games I play aren't 2011+ (usually browser games or classics) now and I don't plan on playing 2011 + games any time soon. I can always upgrade later if I need to. Is it all compatible though? I just need to be sure - I plan on getting some of the parts this week.
Would that graphics card be better or my GeForce 9500 GT from my old computer?
