  1. Hey, I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section(this is my first post). I want to build my own computer and I was wondereing wether or not anybody has a very cheap but good list of things to get... I was also wondering wether or not i should practice on any spare old computers that are thrown out( i could try to mix and match like frankenstein)?

    Please help me,

    Thanks, Marcel

    Get the MSI GD65 motherboard instead. Same price but a few more features. Also a 1TB HDD along with the Corsair 650TX. The whole setup should come in about $1000.
