First off this website is awesome and I have been using it the last few weeks and it's been very helpful. This is my first time building a pc and I have zero prior knowledge on this. My goal is to stay around a $700 budget. My current build was right at $700 a few weeks ago but the prices keep trending upward!
This PC would be used mainly for gaming and some microsoft office/web surfing use. I may be using SolidWorks as well but I'm confident I can run that no problem with this.
I chose most of these parts based on perceived quality and decent prices. Most of these parts were chosen so this PC could be easily upgraded in a few years( i.e. power supply, case).
My current build is below: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Wildcat22/saved/NR2bt6
Please give me suggestions or recommendations on improving my build.
Is a sapphire R9 270X a better choice than an Asus/EVGA gtx 660?
I don't know much about motherboards so do I have a good one?
