This is my first attempt at a build. I am more of a casual gamer, but do not want to be too underpowered. I am planning on savaging my optical drives and my Soundblaster card form my 2006 Dell XPS 410 that died (Unless someone can tell me why I would be better buying new ones). My thoughts are using a SSD for my OS and a few of my MMO games and the HDD for data, media and other games.
I am trying to keep it close to $100 budget-wise if I can. but want it last more than a few years as well. Any advise is appreciated.
