Hi i am basicly want a good gaming computer that will run my games, edit videos and for school.
I want to spend around about 700 dollars on the computer wxcluding moniter, os, keyboard and mouse
I will need the desktop with processor, motherboard, memory, 3.5 sata drive, video card, power suply and the case plus case fan anything else?
I am in australia and the cheapest shop/website i could find was pc case gear i checked out msy but there were no cases that i like so i decided to use pc case gear
I when with intel because in the future i wanna upgrade to i5 3750k or maybe i7 3770k but for now this is my build so far.
Processor-intel pentium g860
Motherboard-asrock hh77m
Ram-corsair 8gh ram 16000 mhz

And for the case- coolermaster storm scout
Fans- bitfenix spectre red 120mm x2 for the side panel of the case
