This is my first time building my own I have basic knowledge to an extent but feel I could do with the help of you guys!
My plan is to go for a budgeted build used for Uni work , running DVD/bluerays etc and a few games I.e swtor
The system will be getting parts update in the future to keep making it better
The current parts I've got
AMD Bulldozer FX 6100 3.3ghz
Western digital caviar blue 250gb 7200rpm
Transcend 8gb 240pin ddr3
Geforce gtx 560 ti or se
Evo labs 600w
Cooler master elite 430
Currently cooler master sickle flow upgrading to Excalibur
Lite on ihos104 x4 blueray/DVD/cd burner
Would this system be a good starting point ?
Also what would the better os be windows 7 or windows 8 I'd prefer 8 if pos...
As you can tell I'm a newbie!
Yes. For limited gaming, you're fine. I haven't tried windows 8 as it primarily benefits touchscreen devices. Get the pro version of windows 7 or 8, whichever you choose. Windows 7 can be found cheaper on craigslist. Just be sure it's unopened.
Thanks for the speedy reply!! I should go for 64bit too I take it??
Also I know in wrong section but its to do with my new build Internet connection in my bedroom has always been limited greatly always low connection but Xbox seemed to connect okay, is there a receiver which I could use to get a better signal we have the normal virgin media modem for wireless downstairs ... Many thanks
