This is my first post on the Tom's Hardware forum, and I hope that I will someday, be near the top of the ladder helping out others.
But now, I need your help. I am building a modest gaming rig that can handle most games at med to high settings, no lag and decent fps. I have chosen parts and I would like your view on my build. Anything that could improve or reduce cost will be much appreciated. This is my first build, so pardon my lack of knowledge. I am located in New Zealand so currencies are different.
