Hey guys this is my first post, but i've been an on and off reader since the early 2000's. I built my first PC back in 2004 and stopped using the system and lost interest in computers/gaming a few years back. I broke up with my girlfriend of 3 years recently and my friends are all moving away and i'm finding myself with a lot more free time. So what better thing to get back into, right??
I've been out of the loop as far as hardware goes so I've spent the past week or so catching up, forum crawling on what's "good" these days.
Sorry if I made any silly mistakes, but I think I did alright for my price range: right around 600.
Hi. I'm glad you are moving on with life. It looks like your budget is more like $700 with all those components and the pcpartpicker link doesn't include the parts. It's not a bad build but there are a few changes worth making. You can spend less for a modular cabling PSU, less for a DVD burner, a little more for a much better graphics card, and a little more for an SSD with double the capacity. I know this build costs $10 more instead of saving you $10 but I feel it's worth the extra costs. You should have all the necessary cables for the setup. Feel free to make changes as you'd like.
