I am currently in the process of building a gaming PC for myself in the $500-650 range and basing it off of duncan33303's $500 gaming PC guide which can be found at this link: (http://goo.gl/7oSZZ) Keep in mind though I am not following the build 100%. Any input would be appreciated.
One of my main concerns with the entire build is the case that my parents got me. Reviews for the XION XON-180P have been relatively negative compared to the case that I wanted (the Antec Three Hundred Case: http://goo.gl/Yt7so) and I also want to know if all the parts will be able to fit inside the XION case since it is a bit smaller. I also wanted to know if the Corsair Vengeance Blue 8 GB (2X4 GB) DDR3 RAM will work with my system since the mobo I am getting only supports 1333 mHz and the Corsair is clocked at 1600 mHz. I have tried looking these things up, but keep getting mixed responses and I am not trying to take any chances.
Also, if any one has a link to a under $100 Monitor that is pretty good quality please post it becuase currently I will get the Acer V193WEJb 19 inch Widescreen 50,000:1 (http://goo.gl/UbO2i)
Thanks in advance to anyone who helps me with my computer build and I apologize for the lengthy post.
