I am going to be building a computer soon which will be my first one so it i am just wanting good specs but nothing that is terrible and nothing that is amazing.
So far i have this:
PSU - Casecom Silver 500W PSU - With 12cm Red LED Fan, 20+4pin 1x SATA, 1x PCI-E
ODD - Pioneer DVR S18LBK 22x DVD±RW DL & RAM SATA - Retail Box Black with Software
CPU Cooler - Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev 2 Socket 775, 1156, 1366, AM2, AM3 Heatpipe CPU Cooler
Processor - AMD Athlon II X3 440 3.0GHz 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 Retail Box Processor
RAM - Kingston 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz/PC3-12800 HyperX Memory Kit CL9(9-9-9-27)
HDD - Western Digital WD5000AAKS 500GB SATAII 7200RPM 16MB Cache - OEM Caviar Blue
SSD - OCZ 16GB miniPCI-Express SATA Solid State Drive
Motherboard - I am considering two boards; Asus M4A785TD-V EVO 785G Socket AM3 onboard DVI VGA HDMI 8 channel audio ATX Motherboard or the Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3 AMD 770 DDR3 ATX USB 3.0 Motherboard - Socket AM3
Case - NZXT Tempest EVO Midi Tower Case - No PSU
Please note that i pretty much just copy and pasted that so sorry if it is a bit messy.
I would just like to know if these specs would be good for a decent computer for a guy on a budget. As i said, this is my first build i am a complete noob and would like a bit of guidance please and i want to keep costs low and the build nice and easy.
I have a HDD and an SSD because i was thinking i could just install my OS onto the SSD (solid state drive btw) which would give me fast start up times and then just put all my other junk onto the 500GB HDD.
Also i would like to get a good case because i hopefully can just keep getting new components and upgrading this instead of building entirely new computers.
This in total is costing me about £500 so although i want to build my computer, I am on a budget so if i could get a better one pre-built from a computer store then just say :D
So thanks for reading this and any advice is appreciated
