I just had some questions about a few of the parts here in order to lower the total price as I am a student and therefore don't have that much access to sweet sweet cash.
Firstly, would I be better off going with an FX-6300 rather than an 8320? I am primarily making this PC to game but do usually have chrome open with 15+ tabs in the background and do like to watch videos and run lots of applications. Would the 8320 be more suited to handling these tasks or would an FX-6300 do the job? (And save me money!)
Secondly, I would like to get a cheaper case if at all possible but still be a good one. If I can save £15 and still have a great case that would be great.
Thirdly, if anyone could recommend a 1080p monitor with 1-2ms response time at £100 or less that would be grand. I have seen some on amazon (BenQ) that have been very highly rated but I don't really know much about them so anyone with advice would be much appreciated.
Fourthly? I would need a PSU that would be able to run all this.
Finally, would the MoBo I have selected at the moment be appropriate for the parts I have selected? If not could someone recommend a better one?
Thanks very much to anyone who takes the time to reply and help me out, it is very very much appreciated.
P.S. I do realise I don't have any RAM selected but that's because I will be using some from my old build.
