Is this a decent combo for a new computer?
Hey guys, so I started putting a computer together, but I'm buying parts for it slowly however I picked up all the parts already that I will be using, some of them subject to change depending on your opinion of what would be better. I want to keep it under a 700-900 dollars budget tho.
What I have so far:
Case: Acteck Denver XP w/500w PSU
What I have planned to use:
CPU: AMD A6-3500. This is the most powerful AMD CPU the store has. I do not plan to do severe multitasking on this computer so I don't think I need intel. Most I'd do is just play games while on skype, and listening to music.
Mobo: Either ASUS F1A75-M or and ECS A55F-M2 if the first one is still not in stock in a couple of months.
Hard drive : Seagate 500gb , 7200 RPM SATA II. I do not want to get anything above 500gb. I'm sure I won't be able to fill it up, I did great with a 90GB hard drive before.
RAM : 1 Kingston Hyper X Blu DDR3 PC3-10600 4GB
GPU: Still debating between PNY Nvidia GT430 1GB DDR3 Or just blowing away money for an Nvidia GTX 560.
I plan on trying out skyrim by a friend request, but don't want amazingly good graphics. Also most likely playing IL-2 1946,cliffs of dover, rise of flight, minecraft, tomb raider anniversary, etc.etc. Basically games from 2006 onward.
For a heatsink/CPU fan I'm still thinking about thermaltake or cooler master.
Someone recommended me thermaltakes Contact 30
and Cooler Masters V8. Any ideas what would be better?
Thanks for your time! I honestly have not gotten opinions from the combo I've came up with.
I don't have any intentions to make this a gaming computer or aiming for amazing gaming performance. I just want a good computer that won't give me performance issues. And one I can have fun with of course.
