  1. Hey guys, joined here because I need advice from people who know what they're talking about.

    Looking to build a budget gaming rig with these specs...

    Main concern is if everything is compatible?
    Any further input is appreciated as well.

    Thanks! :D

    Looks good for a budget.
    Do you really need the WiFi? :eek:

    That's not just a WiFi antenna but it is really a USB wireless adapter with an antenna.

    For Wifi, I think PCI cards are much better than USB dongles.

    I was actually addressing Blkm0nk3y92's comment.

    At first I was curious as to why you would buy an antenna with no wireless adapter so I looked it up. It turned out to be a wireless adapter with an antenna. No problem if that's what you want. You just mislabeled it slightly.
