I am going to be buying a PC along the lines of this
Are there any suggestions that I could make to:
1) Stick in budget
2) Still be able to run games very well
Any suggestions are always read and considered!
The SSD is unavailable in Australia. The 120gb version is though.
The PSU also is unavailable and I wouldn't recommend it anyways. I suggest this one http://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/2tckcf/xfx-power-supply-xfxts550w
You do not need an aftermarket CPU cooler with a locked CPU. You also don't need a z170 board either.
I dont know if you are having viewing issues, but the prices for the PSU and SSD are listed.
I wanted to stick with a Semi-Modular PSU (I am a cable-management picky guy)
And I will definitely change the Mobo around from the Z170 to either a B150 or H170
PcPP says it is available, however if you click on the retailer site to buy the item it says "End of Life" otherwise known as Out of Stock.
Unless you get the old CX PSU (http://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/cvXfrH/corsair-power-supply-cx430m) which doesnt have the best build quality or performance at $70, the cheapest semi/fullly modular psu that is still good quality cost around $105 which is this one: http://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/fjxfrH/antec-power-supply-tp550
Ive drastically changed the build
Anything you recommend changing?
