Hello everybody. I am new to the forums and i would like your opinions/advice. I am trying to build a gaming pc for under $600 and this will be my first build. I have spent the last 2 days or so lurking this forums and i have come up with a build but do not know if the parts even fit or are compatible let alone the performance it will give on games like bf3 and other steam games as well.
HARD DRIVE: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500 GB SATA III 7200 RPM 16 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Desktop Hard Drive - WD5000AAKX ($50 @ amazon)
OPTICAL DRIVE : Lite-On Super AllWrite 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive - Bulk - IHAS124-04 Version C (Black) ($17 @ amazon)
PSU: Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500w Power Supply (RS500-PCARD3-US) ($36 @amazon)
Case: Rosewill Dual Fans MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case FBM-01 ( $30 @ amazon)
Total : approx $550
I am not really interested in maxing out bf3 or any other games like that. I just need smooth gameplay. Please let me know what you guys think and if you might recommend a better build, i'll really appreciate it. Thanks
P.S i will be playing on a 20 inch monitor at 1080p.
