Notes: This computer will be upgraded to a better graphics card, but this one will do for now i believe.. It's use will be for runescape, music, online, word processing. There's no hard drive because that will come later, as for now I'm just going to pull the HDD out of this computer and put it into this new one. What are you thoughts on this build? Any slight tweaks that could make a big difference? Is there any parts that are not compatible with each other? Last question, will this computer be speedy if i overclock? I'm trying to stay in this price range of $400-450. Thank you for all your help.
