Hi. I am 12 and building my first computer and I am going to be building my own computer. I have already dis asembled over 25 and this is the first time actualy building one out of stuff i buy. Can someone reccomend me to parts for this. Here is what I have chose so far.

Motherboard:MSI Computer Corp. Socket AM3+ AMD 970 DDR3 SATA3 and USB 3.0 A&GbE ATX Motherboard 970A-G43
http://www.amazon.com/MSI-Computer-Corp-Motherboard-970A-G43/dp/B00B9BDB14/ref=sr_1_6?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1366748271&sr=1-6&keywords=am3%2B+motherboard

CPU:http://www.amazon.com/AMD-Phenom-1045T-2-70GHz-Processor/dp/B006G76LZY/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1366748660&sr=1-1&keywords=amd+fx+6+core
Will upgrade to fx series 8 core when i can afford it.

RAM: Not decided yet, atleast 8GB

Case:Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus

Power supply:http://www.amazon.com/Logisys-Corp-Bearing-Supply-PS550E12BK/dp/B004MU8VCS/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1366750619&sr=1-1&keywords=power+supply
I think i might want a 650watt

Wow, 12? Welcome to OCN!

 

I want to help with the PSU. No two PSUs are alike. You can have 10 different PSUs rated for the same wattage, and it would be possible where only one of them is worth buying. It doesn't have anything to do with brand names, but the quality of what's inside the PSU. Although, sometimes you can go just by brand names. What I'm getting at is the PSU you're looking at should be avoided at all costs, literally. Logisys happens to be one of those brands that should be avoided when it comes to power supplies.

 

Fortunately, powering your system with one 610 in it will only require a 300-350W power supply. However, it's easier to find a quality-made unit when looking at PSUs in the 400W+ range. Here's the cheapest unit I can find that will power your system as it is planned right now that's also safe to recommend:

 

380W Antec Earthwatts Green (EA-380D) for $48.98 after shipping

I am choosing a large power supply because i may upgrade it when I can afford it. Is there any better PSU's out there that are cheaper than that with around at-least 450 watts? Thanks:)

Ok whats your budget and goal for this rig? the gt610 is not worth it, the motherboard's VRMS with blow when overclocking a 6 vore and the psu is trash.

My quick math says your spending $256 not including ram, any hdd, or OS
