Looking to build a desktop. Is pcpartpicker a good site?

#1UltimateMonkeyPosted 12/30/2013 2:11:45 PM
I want to have a max budget of 700$ nothing too fancy but enough to play some games when i feel like it.

Anyone want to help me out with this? It's a bit overwhelming when seeing what would be optimum for price and efficiency.

I friend recommended that site but I dont know where to start...

those wont work without a power supply to supply them power powerfully. you'll need atleast a 950w for that.

But yeah, just start off with mobo, cpu, and gpu.
And try to fit the rest in according to budget

Your friend could've atleast recommended you some parts to give you an idea where to start rather thansimply sending you to a site like pcpartpicker.

http://www.logicalincrements.com/

This isn't a go all end all site, but you can use as a reference and more information.

It's all good chris. Ok I'm starting off there and yes I'll need an OS. Windows 7 is probably what I'll go for.
