I have bought a few Pre built PC's in the past but never actually attempted it myself so I thought lets give this a try. I started out by doing a heck of a lot of research and with a very limited budget Ebay became my best friend when buying most of my parts. It didn't start out as smooth as I planned however as I originally bought a MSI 990fxa gd80 Mobo and after I had finished putting everything together got the dreaded FF fault displayed on the board. So that got put away and I went out and bought a Asrock 970m Pro which in every way for me as a first time builder was a ton better with it being easier to understand which wires went where. Anyway all advise is welcome thank you.
ASROCK 970m Pro cost me £69 Brand New, FX4300 with stock cooler cost me £40 from Ebay (used), MSI GTX 750TI cost me £60 from Ebay (used), Harddrive cost me £12, Broken MSI 990xfa gd80 cost me £40 (used), EVGA 500w power supply cost me £38 brand new, Corsair Vengance Pro DDR3 1600 8gb RAM cost me £60 Brand new, CIT G Force RGB case cost me £50 Brand new
I will be upgrading my CPU in the near future and upgrading my case as I realize what a huge mistake it was to buy it now and personally want something a lot more smarter such as a NZXT S340 Elite.
Doing the job perfectly fine I seen it come up cheap on Ebay and took the chance and so far is running all games with no problems.
My life saver after my other failed Mobo, Very easy to install and setup top marks from me.
Does what it says could possibly have saved money here but it was a there and then moment in the store with the RAM being the last thing left to build this system.
Such a bargain at £12! I will be buying another soon enough to go alongside this one.
Done a lot of research before choosing this card and when I seen it come up on Ebay for £60 I just had to have it and its been a match made in heaven ever since.
Looked around a lot and seen this was the go to budget PSU for a first time builder like myself it may have been easier to buy a Modular but this done just fine and no complaints so far from me.
