This is my first build and I only have 1200 dollars max......For Everything! so I want the best I can get of everything. I will be gaming, but not constantly only moderately, also recording music, other than that just everyday work stuff. I will probably just use my TV for the monitor at first, which is A Vizio flat screen 1080i/720p. I also have an older dell/VGA monitor. I plan on buying as soon as I get my Student loan check, two or three weeks. No OCing, I don't really care about that stuff. The parts are all priced out on Newegg, but I am open to any site if someone thinks I can save. I Live in Lynchburg VA so buying online is the best option. And yeah I guess that's about it. Thanks
well.....if you read, i don't need a monitor, not yet. That motherboard is weak. the one I have selected has 6 sata 3 ports and UEFI bios which is the best bios ever. I don't want a wired keyboard. Don't need a TB of storage, i would rather have 16 gb of ram. My case is better than that NZXT case, for nly 20 more bucks i think i'll go with that. i guess maybe your selected optical drive is better?
Yeah i think i was looking for more of a yes my components are good or no. I will spend the whole 1200 to have the best i can get......ya feel me........ ASRock....nah dawg i'm going with Asus.....! but i will probably buy the CPU from Amazon.
a motherboard is not a motherboard when it only has 2 sata 3 ports and one pcie slot
i want the best i can get, not the opposite. and 16 gb is not useless, i have seen peoples pc's lock up with only 8 gb running less programs. it happens, also i know people who don't even game with 32. I always say the more ram the better, and i dont' know what i'll be doing with this computer in another year. but at least if i get some decent components i'll be able to upgrade. If not i'll be stuck with just an average system.
When i say my first build I mean MY! firt build, i have built several other computers for other people. and UEFI bios is the easiest to use and since, i will be setting the os and frequently used programs on the ssd (ideally having having them in memory) i will need to set that up separate form the HDD (where i will keep all my files) and that's why using a friendly bios is preferred. I just have never used Asrock and am not about to start now. I mean Asus makes a nice board under 100$ but still doesn't have everything the one i have selected does .
