This will be my 1st custom built PC. Im looking for it to be around 1,000$ give or take. In all honesty, is this going to be a decent, upgradable PC?


What I do on my PC:
Gaming (wow, newer mmo's, COD, Battlefields)
Multi-task to a great deal
streaming videos
Expandability

Hi and welcome,

It doesn't look too bad, although personally I would prefer an Intel build. Double-check the reviews for that motherboard.

RAM, HDD, Graphics, Case and PSU all look pretty sweet to me.

^That being said, an AMD Phenom II X4 is a pretty darn good processor, especially for $160. It's a generation older, but who cares? It still runs quite fast.

Everything else looks good.

True, the only reason I mentioned it is the OP was wanting upgradeability. So it depends on the AM3 socket and what's in store for it in the future. I would definitely class that processor as decent, it's pretty good for the price.

I probably would look at a different motherboard with those reviews on it though.

I would too. Gigabyte boards seem to get good reviews consistently.
