Budget Build Touch Ups

November 25, 2012 6:43:03 PM

I'm building my first PC :pt1cable:  , and I want to know if it's good to go! I have $650-700. I will be playing on a 1920x1080 monitor, and I want to be able to play at high settings without AA (I think it makes it look worse), at a minimum of 40 fps. I have done a TON of research and come up with this. I will do some minor overclocking on the CPU, GPU, and RAM (4ghz, 950-1000mhz, 1866/2133mhz). Please let me know what you think!
