    Default New PC build

    I've not long joined these forums and i've been looking around the rest of the site over the last hour or so and i came across "The PC Gamer Rig: New CPU's, motherboards and more" in the "Tech" section of this site. I was wondering if you guys recommend building the PC the article mentions or is it too pricey? Also does that article get updated to help newbies such as myself? It does make it easier to follow a specific list of bits to buy.

    Apologies for posting in the wrong forum earlier, my budget isn't very high (£500) but i did have a look on Ebuyer earlier on and came up with this: (again i'm fairly new to this so if i've made a tit of myself then i apologize, it might be long-winded but i wasn't sure what info to write so I just basically copied the product information off Ebuyer)

    MOTHERBOARD: ZOTAC H61MAT-C-E H61 SOCKET 1155 DDR3 6 CHANNEL HD AUDIO MATX MOTHERBOARD

    CPU: INTEL PENTIUM DUAL CORE G2120 3.10GHZ SOCKET 1155 3MB CACHE RETAIL BOXED PROCESSOR

    GPU: POWERCOLOR HD 6570 2GB DDR3 DVI-D VGA HDMI PCI-E GRAPHICS CARD

    RAM: CRUCIAL 4GB DDR3 1333MHZ MEMORY

    PSU: ACE 400W GREY PSU 12CM FAN SATA 20+4 PIN

    HARD DRIVE: HITACHI 250GB TRAVELSTAR Z5K500 INTERNAL HARD DRIVE

    DVD DRIVE: LITEON IHAS120 20x DVD RW RAM SATA DRIVE

    SOUND CARD: XENTA 6 CHANNEL PCI SOUNDCARD

    CASE: CASECOM BLACK/SILVER TRIM MID TOWER CASE

    is it all compatible? and more importantly will it run games

    Not very well.

    [URL="http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/oHYB"]This[/URL] is better.

    I'd say [URL="http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/oI5X"]go for this[/URL], it'll preform much, much faster.
