If you're wanting something in the 400-500 range I'd suggest a PS4. It will last much longer and provide superior visual prowess over the years.


I suggest you read my first post again. This is not just for gaming.

Serious advice here, don't get a wireless card, get a cable, move your router, get homeplugs instead if you have to.

Especially if you live in a block of flats or a busy street, as soon as there are 4+ detectable wifi signals you start to get interference.

I didn't read past the title asking for "my first PC (gaming) AMD build" because really you shouldn't have specified in the title if you were going to half ass it.

Maybe you should start reading everything that is posted, so you don't make yourself look like an idiot.

Make Yourself
If I hadn't assembled myself, I'd have fallen apart by now.

Hey all,

I've decided to skip on next-gen consoles for the time being, due to the lack of any games that I would like. Instead, I'm going to spend my money on building my first PC. I'm not on a big budget, so I'm looking for a build that is multipurpose: plays decent games (I mostly use my ps3 to play games with a back catalog to catch up on), 3d modelling, music production (i got an external soundcard already), game programming, and the general pc usage.

So, this is what I've already come up with:

Any advice or suggestions?

Many thanks.


3d modelling man get nvidia that cuda core helps

Are you an Intel guy? Do you only stick with Intel processors for builds? Because I'm trying to understand why the build I just provided is "pretty bad" in "your" terms.

Obviously, any build that doesn't use the exact components/brands a poster prefers is "bad", regardless of industry coverage or benchmarks etc. of the constituent parts - personal opinion rules the roost here at GameFAQs.
