First Ever Build - Need Affirmation

grapes123
  • 70 months ago

Hi, This is my first time attempting to assemble a PC. I've got a tight budget of $700. Goals of this build: Play League of Legends and TF2 at max settings with very high FPS. Do school work and browse the web without stuttering. I've come up with this build and I can't seem to go any lower. Please take a look and offer any pointers or changes you see fit. Thanks so much for the help.

EDIT: The part I'm most concerned with is the motherboard. Is it possible to cheap out on the mobo or is that not a good idea?

Do you think the PSU is too much?

No its fine. The minimum recommended psu wattage you should have is 450W just in case you ever wanna add something extra but anything lower than what you have would be a bad quality psu that can damage your parts. Stick with the one you choose.

Any opinions on the mobo?

It's the basic essentials for what you need so you don't get the extras you find on some motherboards.

It's great quality and will have great support from asus.

It's great for the price.
