Hey guys,
I've built my own computer before and im currently doing a traineeship at an Apple Reseller/Service Office so i have decent knowledge of what im doing. the only thing that i have not done before is decide what i was going to be building my new pc with. I have come up with a list that i whipped up quickly and i was just looking for any suggestions/advice on what should be changed etc. The computer's main use will be for gaming and i want it to be able to last and tackle games decently for the next few years or so. Now im on a tight budget and i think the price that i have gotten to already seems a bit steep for myself and i feel like i should be getting more for that amount i could be wrong tho. so please take a look and let me know what you think :D.
