Building a gaming PC for the first time: how is this selection of components?
I have read a few articles regarding building PCs, and has lead me to select this combination of components based on my needs. I was hoping for a decent gaming PC that can run stuff at 1900×1080 at decent settings (if not the best). I also use my computer to multitable poker, but I was assuming that by getting something that can run games pretty decently then it would take care of that at the same time. If I am wrong in this thinking, let me know.
I am still pretty inexperienced concerning building PCs so I wanted to check with our computer flutherite experts before going ahead and buying stuff.
So my questions are:
Is this selection of components good?
Are there other things I have missed?
Are there better products for the same price than what I have selected?
And here is the list of components.
NZXT Hades PC Case:
AMD Phenom II 550 3.1GHz 7mb
Crucial 2gb ddr3 ram
sapphire ati radeon hd 650mhz 5770 2gb
microsoft keyboard + mouse
150Mbps network usb adaptor with antenna
lg 22x optical drive
My overall budget was £600 for everything (including monitor/keyboard/mouse) and my list totals to £574 (including VAT and postage). Thanks for any help.
