Hello everyone, I am currently in the process of building my first gaming rig. I will link my tentative build below. If you guys have any advice/upgrades please let me know! I am also getting 2 140 mm fans and 2 120 mm fans for airflow and a mouse pad for 15 dollars. On newegg it all comes to 995 which is right at budget. I would love to get a dedicated SSD, but I cannot fit it into budget so I got the hybrid instead. Thanks in advance!!

Cooler is junk. get a coolermaster hyper 212 EVO.

The build is a complete mess. What is the computer going to be used for? It won't barely play games at lowest settings.

Please do 2 things....right away...

1. Start a new thread for what your problem is so we may close this thread, forum rules.

2. Stop insulting the people that help you "This is not the ANSWER I want Man and PLZ GET YOUR SELF OUT OF INTERNET INFO AND CHECK THINGS IN REAL TIME WORKING CONDITIONS.

Forum rules require us to be respectful to each other. Please review the forum policy's and rules, before I do the right thing and report you.


**** You are very lucky I am in a good mood, otherwise I would report you...and thats not a good thing****
Thank you.


I agree with tiny voices, start a new thread and we will both help you there we need to pick an answer, not keep going on one thread. Your build is a complete mess...there would be no way that you could play games on it...your video card isn't even a GTX.
