Hello, I am a new member, first time poster, long time forum viewer haha. I have always wanted to build my own pc, and things worked out financially that now I have the chance, on a budget of course. I've spent some time putting together this build and looking for every possible way to save money through discounts and free shipping and such, and would like to see what people here thought before I pull the trigger on anything.
I'm mainly looking to be able to use this pc for gaming. I am not as into it as some people, so being able to play on medium/high settings at least on most games is fine. I'm not looking to play on ultra for games like Crysis 2/3. I have a laptop that I use for normal everyday use, but I would still like to be able to use iTunes, Office, Youtube, etc.
My main concerns are the power supply and the motherboard. Everything else I am pretty happy with. My budget is about 700 when it is all ordered and shipping paid and such.
I am open to suggestions on better parts that cost less, downgrading something I have to get something better in another category, or downgrading to save money on anything in general. I cant really go over whats already there financially (if my math is correct, I think I should pay around $710 all said and done )
The prices may be a little off from what I calculated on my own due to using different sources in order to get free shipping and other discounts, but the parts are all the same. I already have an operating system.
No issues with the motherboard quality? Also, one thing i noticed while doing more research is the fx 6300 does not support DDR3-1333 or DDR3-1600 memory. Instead, a website lists that it supports DDR3-1866, so should I change my ram from DDR3-1600 to 1866?
