Default New Build Help.

Hello,

My name is Eric and this is my first computer (Desktop) build. I believe I have it right, but I need a second opinion before I order the parts and start the build. I need a confirmation that everything will be okay, lol.

Understand that this is an entry-level build, so there are no high-end parts yet. I would appreciate a comment if all looks good. Thanks.

Default Re: New Build Help.

i know that youre going for the budget build, but i really cant recommend that apex psu.

try this one, for only $10 more.
Newegg.com - Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

that x3 core chip is a bit dated as well. for $15 more, youll get much more performance out of this:
Newegg.com - AMD Athlon II X4 645 Propus 3.1GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor ADX645WFK42GM - Processors - Desktops

youre missing ram.

i would shoot for a 4 Gb stick of 1333 speed ram from whatever looks nice and cheap. when you have more money later, another 4 Gb stick will finish the build.

For literally the same price he can get a single 4GB stick of 1600 which he would benefit from having an AMD setup.

Ya know, I was just thinking that about the heat sink. I will need to get one or opt for a processor that has one included. Ya, i haven't decided on the RAM yet. I think I will just get one stick of RAM and then get another stick later. Thanks for your input. I will be posting the final build later. Thanks again for your advice and input.
