I'm looking to build a gaming PC that will comfortably run most games on the market at the moment, but at a budget. I'm not interested in aesthetics, and I don't think I want to overclock simply out of fear of damaging components...
I've slapped a parts list together, but outside of pcpartpicker's compatibility checker telling me so, I've no idea how well the parts will perform together, and if I've invested appropriate amounts into the parts, or if I'm overkill in some areas and lacking in others. I'm very inexperienced as you can probably tell so it would be appreciated if you make things a bit easy for me :p
I don't have much criteria for the case, not too ugly I guess but I'm not fussed by aesthetics.
I'd like a little extra wattage from the power supply to support upgrades such as an extra crossfire video card, though I'm not sure if its worth it, or how much extra wattage is prudent...
CPU, motherboard and memory requirements are basically something that'll make sense with the rest of the build, preferably 2x4GB RAM
I'd like a discrete video card with at least 3GB memory, something capable of comfortably running high end games on mid sorta settings, and the usual stuff like skyrim or whatever on the highest.
I'm not sure if an ssd is totally worth it?
Hopefully nothing I've said is totally stupid, thanks to anyone willing to lend me a hand!
