My parents have been kind enough to spot me $800 for a new computer and I decided now would be a good time to do my first build! So as you can imagine, this might not be optimal at all so I need any advice. Just need the OS, no monitor, mouse, keyboard.
Some things to keep in mind:
1. Stay under $800 2. I want to dual boot Windows 8 and Linux Mint. 3. Right now, I don't plan to OC, SLI or dual monitor or anything special but in a few months, after having developed some comfort having built this first one and having some extra cash, I would like the option to potentially do more interesting things, so I need that to be considered.
Q: At this price range, what kind of games will I be able to handle?
Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain - and most fools do.
