So I have this on Ibuypower, it's the Gamer Fire 500, but I swapped out a couple of the parts. To be honest I barely know what I'm doing so I was wondering if this build will still be okay with some of the parts switched. I don't need a godlike computer, but I need a better one then the one I currently have for playing games. I also want to stay on the cheaper side so keep that in mind. Thank you.
