Hello everyone. New member here and building my first computer. I've never had the right hardware or means to build one before. Just looking for some advice. I recently went to an auction where I scored a bunch of nice computer hardware. I would like to build the best PC I can out of this and looking for your opinions. Some of the hardware is a year or two old. Also, I will need to purchase a few things like memory, processor, video card, etc. I do some gaming, but nothing hardcore.
"The 1kW Turbo Cool is considered one of the highest quality PSUs available; despite being one of the loudest, it is a high-quality server-grade PSU. The Silencer series is good, although their are better Seasonic built units available, that are also quieter and better value."
Cases : get the Thermaltake Level 10 if it's cheaper than the silverstone one.
Cooler : Scythe SCMG-3000, it's the best, the artic freezer pro 13 only if it's cheaper.
PSU : NZXT HALE90-850-M 850W if it's th cheapest, those are all overkill and old.
MOBO : the am3+ for obvious reasons,but the brand sucks(ECS), keep in mind it's only valid if you have or you'll buy an FX amd cpu.
Now for my opinion, if those cost a lot, you can get cheaper new parts, it's not recommended going with old parts.
You can get good psus for 50-60$.
Cases for 45-60$.
LGA 1155 h77 for 70$, z77 for 90-140$, am3 + for 70-140$.
Thank you both so much for your thoughts. I've already bought all the items I listed for about $200. Some are new and some are slightly used. Not sure how I feel using the used stuff. Just wondered what the best build would be.
