I am looking to build my first computer and have put a parts list together.
I was hoping someone with building advice could look over it and offer any suggestions. Preferably not changing anything that makes it more expensive, since I am about 100 over what I would like it to be. I think I could use a different motherboard, I am not really sure what motherboard to select. Thanks in advance.
