Hey guys, I just made an account here. My first build is this $750(including OS) Gaming PC. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions for my first build since it's probably lacking somewhere. Thanks to anyone who helps me out!
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/HrD6P6 (I have some questions at the bottom of post about this build)
CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor CPU Cooler: NONE Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P ATX AM3+ Motherboard Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory Storage: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive Extra Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive Video Card: Asus Radeon R9 280 3GB DirectCU II Video Card Case: Corsair 200R ATX Mid Tower Case Power Supply: Corsair Builder 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (OEM) (64-bit) Wireless Network Adapter: Asus PCE-N15 802.11b/g/n PCI-Express x1 Wi-Fi Adapter
So I know I want to keep the r9 280 or get a similar one, RAM, and storage. I want to know if i need to overclock my cpu and get a cooler(or swap it for another one), swap the mobo, maybe swap a cheaper case, and if my psu is fine. I need the wifi adapter since i can't connect wired from where i'm going to put it, but should I get a usb one instead? I'm going to get legit windows, either 8 or 7, unless there's a very easy way to get it for free. So thanks to anyone who helps again, and I would like to keep it under 800 after rebates.
