  1. Hi guys, I been reading around on LifeHacker, Reddit and different sites on cheap good PC builds for $600-$700 ish. Sadly, Ive never build a PC from scratch but I do know a fair bit on them. Formatted, Re-installed Clean OS, Installed/removed RAM, PSU, GFX Cards...so im not 100% a noob. lol But im not perfect which is why im here. I do sort of have a budget of $700... and after reading around, I didnt liked the reviews on certain components and i decided to modify and search for other parts that had better reviews etc etc. So I came up with this build: CPU: AMD FX-8320 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor FD8320FRHKBOX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113285 $159.99 Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128514 $134.99 RAM: Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3B1K2/8GX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104262 $69.99 Hard Drive: WD Blue 1 TB Desktop Hard Drive: 3.5 Inch, 7200 RPM, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64 MB Cache - WD10EZEX http://www.amazon.com/WD-Blue-Desktop-Hard-Drive/dp/B0088PUEPK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1392947688&sr=8-1&keywords=Western+Digital+Caviar+Blue+1TB+3.5%22+7200RPM+Internal+Hard+Drive $59.99 PSU: EVGA 500W 80PLUS Certified ATX12V/EPS12V Power Supply 100-W1-0500-KR http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-80PLUS-Certified-ATX12V-100-W1-0500-KR/dp/B00H33SFJU/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1392947860&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=EVGA+500W+80%2B $44.99 Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 - High Air Flow Mid Tower Computer Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233 $59.99 Its missing a Graphic Card though and Im not 100% sure but, will all those parts mix well together? I know MOBO and Cases /RAM gotta be a certain kind to work together. Now, I saw a lot graphic cards recommendations for $150-$200 but those cards seemed to have dissapeared from the market or...the prices sky rocketed. Can anyone tell me if I can perhaps replace a part on my build with a BETTER part and be cheaper? or same price? and also a decent graphic card that doesnt kill my wallet? o.o Also, will that PSU be enough for my build + the graphic card?
