After some research I pick out the parts I think would be good for my first gaming build. I posted this to get advice on how I could improve my build(Things I should add or get instead) . I'm new to this so I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing. I normally play games like Garry's Mod, Chivalry Medieval Warfare, and BF3. My budget is $1000, yet I would like to make it as cheap as possible, but still powerful enough to play games.
Should I pay the extra money for a full case or is a mid-tower good enough to fit all the parts? And do I need to buy cables for the HDD and DVD drive or do they come with them?
Thank you all for the advice. After I get my paycheck, I can buy the parts and build my computer. I'm going to college soon and won't be able to afford next-gen consoles. So now I can switch from console gaming to PC gaming.
