I am a complete newbie when it comes to building a PC, as I have never done it before. I have been doing some research and looking around at parts and prices and stuff, and have settled on two budget PC builds I customized that are similar but a little different. I have no set price range but the cheaper the better. I don't need to run every game at max or ultra settings, just good enough quality with solid frame rates, really medium quality and 30-40 FPS would be just fine. Here are the builds below. Please leave any feedback or advice! Thank you!
AMD A8 3.9 GHz 4-core, 8 GB RAM, 1 TB - http://pcpartpicker.com/user/HammerGames/saved/XDY2FT AMD FX 3.5 GHz 6-core, 8 GB RAM, 1 TB - http://pcpartpicker.com/user/HammerGames/saved/gVVLrH
The second FX build is the same thing as the first one, just a different processor and I changed incompatible parts.
The questions I had were: Do you need an Optical Drive and a CPU Cooler? Is the GeForce GT 730 good? How important is having a GPU and would not having one to save money and using integrated graphics be possible with the above parts?
