I'd like some tips on putting together a low-budget gaming rig, modeling Marest's "Budget Gaming 560" build. I pretty much copied everything across the board, swapping only the case, as the Cougar has USB 3.0 access whereas the listed Xigmatek Asgard does not (according to pcpartpicker). Following Marest's advice, I checked out other parts, but I wasn't totally convinced that anything else really needed to be changed. But I am open to suggestions!
Here's the link to parts and prices: pcpartpicker.com/p/xw77
MoBo: ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP
CPU: Intel i3 3220
RAM: G.Skill 1600MHz 2x4GB
GPU: HIS Radeon 7850
HDD: WD Caviar Blue 500GB
PSU: Antec VP-450W
Case: Cougar Solution (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit)
The above came to $622.84 (in the US), which is within my budget ($650 max). Seems quite good, considering I need to buy an OS. I don't need any other peripherals at this time. I'm only playing WoW, and fair/good/high settings would all suit me fine.
Again, any suggestions and constructive comments are welcome and much appreciated. Thanks!
