How Well Do These Parts Go Together -New Build
I can build them, (well, this will be system two) however, I get a little out of the loop over the months so I like to check with everyday members that are more up on all this.
The CPU is rather costly, thing is, I have a budget that goes about hundred over this, I do need a tv turner, better choice for a CPU? Trying to make a system that can be upgraded for a while.
I have a hard drive, two OS's and a graphics card already. (from current system)
Overall, items need to be exchanged for something better? Cheaper that can get close to the same results? Is the power supply good enough?
I could upgrade the case a bit.
Some items are listed just for price reasons, the total is $524.00 and I can spend over $600.00, that leaves room for improvements.
Thanks for the help.
