Intro for the sake of intros

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello PC People! I'm a complete noob hoping to build my first PC with my tax refund monies sooooo... wish me some luck tongue.gif.
Also, I've been wondering what kind of graphics card I should get. I've been looking around pcpartspicker and some used online shops but if I don't find what I want, I was going to get an EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB card. I am pretty new at pc games so I'm mostly going to be playing simple games like minecraft, portal 1+2, don't starve, and rocket league (I did recently buy batman: Arkham Asylum though. I CAN'T WAIT biggrin.gif ), but I hope to upgrade and buy better games in the future. Any good suggestions?

Oh my..spend your money carefully.Welcome to OCN.Could you swing some used parts from the forums?
750Ti is kinda weak..you need a 256-bit or more for a real GPU.With that you need a real PSU.750w+
As far as chips..anything 1366-on is best for gaming.
May need overclocking.
