Default Re: Post your custom rig

Looking at those components the CPU and motherboard are excellent but the GTX 620 is a turkey, a GTX 460 is way more powerful and can be had quite cheaply used on ebay. I would suggest selling your Skrim on ebay and putting your money towards a high spec used GPU. RAM is very cheap nowadays so no problem there.DVD drives are likewise very cheap - I use a Samsung Writemaster which I bought off ebay for a few pounds. For a hard drive I would suggest an SSD (solid state drive) of about 80gb for your operating system and something like 1 Terabyte for everything else. If you get Custom PC magazine they have just done a review of affordable mid tower cases and their "top choice" was the Xigmatek Midgard I I - great looking and packed with useful features. If you want to build your own PC I suggest searching Youtube for "how to build a PC", I linked to a useful video earlier in this thread.
