The total for the build is 792.93
I compiled this list using previous posts from this forum although I did do some tweaks to the builds I found to match my needs.
I want this build to be able to browse the web, have decent gaming capabilities, play high quality videos, and also be able to multitask. I would also like it to be able to achieve a low OC
First, I would like to know if all the parts are compatible.
Second, my original budget was 700$
so if anyone knows how I could lower the price without significantly downgrading any parts It would be highly appreciated. I am also open to any suggestions of smart upgrades that are preferable in the long run I can go as high as 850$
Third, I'm unsure about the motherboard if someone could suggest to me a motherboard preferably one that can crossfire I would be thankful
Thanks I greatly appreciate any feedback.
