Hello Toms Hardware, I'm new to building computers but I have a fair amount of knowlege on them. I am on a budget but I still want to build a decently nice PC for playing a few games. I have come up with my components (or what I think are good components) for my budget computer. Please feel free to critique my setup!
Minor modifications to get best bang for buck
7850 costs only a bit more but performs about the same as the 6950
You don't really need a 600W PSU for a budget build unless you are cf/sli later
Chose the 2GB model as it only costs less than $10 more (a model with better cooling can be had for $10 more, your choice)
(uses a 2120 to avoid comparabilityompatiability issues with H61 bios flashing [low end boards don't support USB falshing AFAIK] and using a B75 board would put you too lcose to the FX6300 in cost)
(going i3 3220/B75 would bump your price up about $10 but B75 gets you USB3 and SATA6[only usefule if you have SATA6 fast SSD])
Hello stickmansam, thank you for the suggestions and telling me exactly what is changing within them! Very helpful! For the third selection, you say that it is good for futureproofing, but I will need to spend $15.00 more for USB 3.0. I don't understand what you mean. Are you saying that I am spending 15 more dollars on that version because it includes USB 3.0 or are you saying that I will need to also spend an additional $15.00 to obtain USB 3.0 converters? again, I appreciate you helping me
