I am in the process of building a pc to use to play both on and off line games, the only issue is cost, really am on a very tight budget. Also I have never done this before so could use a little advice.
You guys have helped so far in giving me some ideas and tips, now I need your help again.
To start with I bought a Coolermaster Elite 335 case, I know its not as good as the likes of Antec or Lian Li but I thought that this would be perfect for the first time messing around with this sort of thing. Do any of you have one of these or has any of you seen them in action? Just want to know if I have done ok?
Now I need to think about power, motherboard and processor.
I was looking at the Gigabyte GA-EP31-DS3L iP31 Socket 775 MB with a Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 2.5GHz Socket 775 800FSB 2MB, which I believe would be ample (I think) for what I would need. What are your thoughts?
I am a little confused about Power as well, I really do not understand what kind of power supply would be best, again it needs to be cheap but at the same time needs to have enough guts to power the machine and not sound like a 747 taking off! I have been looking on line and have gotten myself in a right two and eight, just cant get my head around what does what!
For most of you guys you will read this thread and laugh as I am sure that you have all been there with your first builds and remember the pain I am feeling lol
