is currently what i have planned for my first gaming computer i'm building while trying to stay in a decent price range. i mostly play ARPG's, League of Legends, Minecraft, and the occasional "hey check this game out" game that would be nice to be able to actually run past start up at the moment i'm using a school laptop with integrated graphics so this would definitely be improving on the situation. but if you guys could help me out a bit and tell me if the parts would actually work together/ be a decent build for the price it would be greatly appreciated. feel free to throw in some of your own recommendations where i could cut some costs or improve the build a little. thanks guys.
btw veryyyy max price is 1000$. trying to stay under/around 900 though
i dont need to buy an OS. and i think i would prefer the HDD over the lower SSD due to just plain storage and i dont believe i need the extra speed on it
I will never build a pc without a SSD for the OS again.
Once you have one, you will neither.
With your budget, a SSD is entirely appropriate.
Add $100 to your budget if you need to.
Forget boot times, you only do that occasionally. Things like os install or maintenance will take an hour job down to 5-10 minutes.
Internet browsing is faster, and files open instantly.
But here is no reason why you can't start with just a SSD for the "C" drive and later add a hard drive of whatever size you might need.
A 120gb ssd will hold the OS an a handful of games. With 180gb or 240gb, you may never need a hard drive at all.
