post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
This is my gaming build i will be making in somewhere near May hopefully if nothing goes wrong. Please give me your opinion on this, I might sell it after a few months for more builds. Also tell me how much you would buy it for.

I forgot the hardrive >.>

Nice build.

A nice way to reduce cost is sacrificing the DVD drive.
Reason:
-Games can be purchased, downloaded and installed. I.E. Steam
-Install Win7 via usb drive. Ask a friend to borrow one or buy one for about 10$.
-Movies can be streamed/purchased and downloaded online. I.E. Amazon
-Music can be purchased and downloaded via iTunes or other music markets.
Cons:
-No home made dvd.
-Cannot install from cd/dvd
-No CD ripping

Now for what to do with the extra $30. You can add a heatsink to the CPU or purchase a better case. Perhaps even a better set of mouse/keyboard(logitech keyboard/mouse combos are about 40-50 for the cheaper ones.)
