Default Re: Good first build? Tell me what you think!

Go with the other build you made in this thread.
Help wanted with PC build

Use the same board you have here.

I asked the questions for a reason. The first was an obvious mistake, you don't need the 32GB of RAM and you have 2 completely different sets chosen. If you're on a budget you could easily do with 8GB of 2133. A single stick at that for 30 bucks. For an idea of a cheaper build (if needed) look at Duante's thread.

I asked about the rest because I needed to know your reasoning as to why you chose the stuff. A Pentium 4400 doesn't need an H60 for a cooler, unless you plan to upgrade to an i5 later maybe. Otherwise it doesn't make sense.

Asked about the Bluray because the software for Bluray playback costs more money so in this sense it doesn't make sense to spend the 50 bucks.

Single Corsair fan for 13 bucks can be eliminated if you need to save money.

Asked about the 1TB internal and external because I didn't know if you had a reason for it or if it simply sounded like a good idea at the time. If it's the latter, go ahead and ditch it.

Need Descent and Mechwarrior buddies!
