Hey guys, I'm a new user on here and a 1st time builder. I know my way about a computer, changed stuff in and out, installed/replaced hardware(expansion cards, HDDs, Ram, optical drives etc.) a couple times over the years, so I'm confident I can handle building.
Can you guys just give me your opinions on the parts I chose for the build? I'm using the HDD(500gb) and optical drive(DVD/CD RW) from the PC i'm using right now for the new build so those parts won't be listed below.
Here's the list:
Coolermaster Elite 430 Mid-Tower case
Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3V Motherboard
Intel i3-3220 3.3ghz processor
Crucial Ballistix 8GB(2x4gb) 1600mhz memory
MSI Radeon Hd 6570 2GB Video Card
CoolerMaster GX450 - 450W (80+ Bronze certified) Power Supply
[All parts Purchased from TigerDirect]
That's it basically.
I also purchased an anti-static wrist strap to eliminate the chances of potentially damaging ESD.
My budget was just about $450 and I'm only going to be using this system for basic computing, video viewing and casual gaming, no SLI or Crossfire or overclocking(CPU or Memory), nothing extravagant.
