Very First Pc Build- Lots of question and needed feed back! - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
Thanks! very useful.

Well the items I started with were at my budget max. So I have a few dollars I can use. I dont want to go to low just in case I decide to upgrade later.

When I get the knowledge I wanted to work with overclocking, maybe changing thew GPU and going with aftermarket cooling systems. so I want to make sure everything I had would be sound.

I got the GPU off of ebay for 50.00, although it did not come with anything but the GPU. I though it was a great deal. I thought?! what do you think?

Going budget doesn't prevent you from upgrading later - it just saves you money so its easier to do so. And dont' forget, with your items you started with, you were still missing case, dvd-burner, hard drive, so if you were at your budget max, going cheaper is kind of necessary!

Cheaper case - will still work fine with upgrades
Power supply - will still handle any Intel cpu + any single GPU
DVD-burner - of course you want cheap!
HDD - not going to get in the way of upgrades
CPU & mobo - actually a very good upgrade path - if you ever want a quad-core CPU, you can slap an i5-3450 in there instead with no added motherboard cost.
GPU - as always, you can just pull out the GPU & replace with a new one.

For $50, that's not bad for a video card. As for the molex to 6-pin adapter, here's one if you need it ($7)

I have a case, hard drive, and a dvd drive. those were the only compnents i needed for the build. sorry I probably should have stated that a long time ago lol.. do I still need that pin connecter with the 970 extreme 3?

it's not a question of motherboard, it's a question of power supply. You need it if the PSU you get comes with one PCI-e connector. You don't need it if it comes with two pci-e connections.
