First time on this website. Hi :)

So, my ole trusty laptop recently broke, so I've decided to move from console to PC gaming. I have two builds my friends helped me with(I don't know much about the components haha.)

 

BUILD 1: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/sXPv8d

 

BUILD 2: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/DaRealChrispy/saved/9zpypg

 

My budget is within $800 and these are the two that my friends helped me come up with. I personally am just not sure which I should go with. Some input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hi,

 

Not had a full chance to review but I don't rate kingston SSD's... I've had a few over the years and they were the cause of much frustration. That being said I haven't purchased any of the latest ones. Check out some of the Samsung SSD's.

Here's a build I put together for you with your budget in mind. This build gives you room to upgrade in the future if you ever want to put more RAM, storage, or anything else really without having to get a new power supply.

Both use obsolete LGA1150 socket, so no.

Modified that one. Better PSU, added SSD, switched video card to more wise one (as GTX970 is too expensive considering new generation cards are coming very soon) and boubled memory.

Hey, thank you for the input you two. These builds look good, but is a cpu cooler not a necessity? My room is rather small and I don't want it to get too hot in there.

CPU comes with basic CPU cooler that basically should get the job done, but nothing more.

 

CPU cooler has little effect for your room temperature.

Alright, good to know. What about the video card it seems to be an older iteration but is also much cheaper. It wouldn't cause any performance issues would it?

What is your monitor? FullHD 60Hz? If yes, then R9 380 is quite perfect match.

Haven't picked out a monitor yet, I was going to purchase that separately from the bulk, however my guts telling me that's a bad idea. WIth a monitor that jump the costs to be around... $900 right? I guess I can extend my budget a little haha.

EDIT: Ended up going with an Asus VX238H 23.0" Monitor.

For that monitor, R9 380 is excellent choice.

 

Radeon R9 380 4GB of course. 2GB is bit small amount and price difference is small.

Awesome! Thanks for your help. I wasn't sure if my friends were really all that knowledgable about computers despite building their own so I came here. Thank you for your help, probably gonna go with the build you picked out for me along with that monitor. Gonna take me all summer to amass the money to get it though, lol. Thanks again!

No problem. However, overclockable build is only 60 bucks more, so I recommend that one http://pcpartpicker.com/p/48vmf7

To be honest the videocard will heat your room much more then your CPU.
 
On another note, I personally would not go with the stock cooler. I agree with Drillingmachine when he included a cooler with the build.
(I personally have seen many cases where the stock cooler just didn't cut it.)

And add about $100 for an OS.

Probably would be quieter too! Thanks for the advice!

Fortunately my friends already have Window OS's that I can use.
