I've always been a console gamer and have recently been persuaded to make the switch to PC gaming. Ideally I want something in the $300-$400 range, but I also don't want to make bad choices for the sake of saving a few bucks. Right now, this is what I'm looking at.
CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($109.99 @ Newegg) Motherboard: Biostar TA970 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($59.99 @ Newegg) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($88.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($52.91 @ OutletPC) Video Card: MSI Radeon R7 260X 2GB Video Card ($99.99 @ Newegg) Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case ($49.99 @ Newegg) Power Supply: Corsair CX 430W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($39.99 @ Newegg) Case Fan: Aerocool DS 120mm Blue 81.5 CFM 120mm Fan ($14.99 @ Newegg) Total: $493.84
I'm pretty new to the whole thing so I'd love input from experienced PC builder/gamers!
