My First Build, would these parts work?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! This is my very first build, and before ordering all this stuff I wanted some advice whether this stuff is good, good priced, or if it will work at all. I'm going for a lower priced good performance gaming comp. I am willing to spend quite a bit, but I really need to know if this could support much games. Here is a bundle of links to Newegg items, just tell me would this build work.

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811108236 $65

Motherboard & CPU Combo:

Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127703 $ 95

Power Supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=17-139-027 $ 50

Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313347 $ 135

HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148913 $ 80


Thanks again guys for the help, I really appreciate it!

Yes they will work but it isn't the optimal setup for the money. Another thing i would like to point out that the HDD isn't good, you should get a 7200 RPM HDD , this is 5900

The APU mixed with a Nvidea card is an odd choice.

This, although it is a little more expensive, gives you more upgrade options later on while still giving you a dual core processor at higher clocks
CPU: AMD Sempron 2.8ghz Dual core - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103888
MOBO: ASUS AM3+ - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131795

RAM, do you need 16 gigs? If you want a mid-range gaming tower, 8 gigs is the new standard and is much cheaper

the Corsair power supplies are overpriced, there are cheaper options that are just as good internally, cant remember the name off the top of my head.

As for the GPU, the 650 is fairly weak. Going a few dollars more for an AMD 7790 will give you much more gaming power for the money. Easily affordable if you drop down to 8 gigs of RAM

Last point is that you dont have an OS listed in there. Dunno if its intentional but figured it does you no harm if i point it out.

Good catch on the HDD speeds Rauli11.
This is a sutable replacement for just a few dollars more

Consider a 120 GB SSD for your main drive. If you look for a deal you can get a decent one for less than $100 bucks. You'll have plenty of room for the OS plus a couple of your favorite games on there. You will likely still need a HDD though. For the minimal price difference you are still better off with the 7200 RPM drive. If you don't have much media you can probably get a 500 GB 7200 RPM drive for $60 or less. 5900 RPM drives are only good for backup or media storage.
