More about build
  1. Where is your GPU?
    The blu-ray drive will also do DVD so drop the DVD drive.
    Get only 8gb RAM. Games use no more than 4gb ever.
    Get a WAY cheaper motherboard.
    Where is your PSU?
  2. This is... no. Just no.

    If nobody else gives you a different build, I'll come back and make one for you, but this has so many mistakes I'm not even going to try to critique it. I'm sorry for putting it so harshly, but if you buy this, you might as well set your money on fire.
  3. Wow that bad huh?? Guess back to researching.. Thanx
