Novice first time build. Suggestions greatly appreciated!!! - Page 3

post #21 of 23
If you haven't gone and ordered the parts yet then I will work a build for you too but ill have to do it later today after I have gone to bed lol. its best to do when I'm not sleep deprived. I have made builds on strict budgets before and every time, the buyer was more than satisfied. I build, repair, and upgrade peoples computers (and fix various other electronic devices) for a living so ill work something out for you. give me about 12 hours or so and ill post it up here with links to everything ok?

PowerTrip's suggestion is really good. In games, the most important component is the GPU. Better GPU = more frames = better gameplay (as long as it's not bottlenecking). That is a very good system and will last you long.
An SSD is not something that you really need. It's more like a nice accessory. Like an expensive jewelery to a girl.
Good job PowerTrip!

I'd agree. Powertrips suggested build is awesome. I will say that I did notice a huge gain in overall system performance when I got an SSD but that isn't needed now. Get his build and upgrade later. You can reinstall Windows on to an SSD and use the HDD as mass storage. That setup leaves you plenty of room for upgrades later and will be more than sufficient to play any game at max settings as long as you flash the BIOS to the higher card. Good luck and have fun building it. Just one tip from someone who has built over 100 computers. Take your time and make sure you take every possible precaution (I.E. always wear a antistatic strap, don't built your computer while standing on carpet if you can help it, and never plug your computer in until everything is 100% assembled). Let us know if you need help, that's what we're here for. Take advantage of it.
