My main issues are:
- I'm not 100% sure if these parts will work together. I'm fairly certain, but not 100%. Especially the PSU. I couldn't find much on how to choose a PSU outside of some specs to look for.
I'm not sure if these parts are as high quality as I think/have heard/read.
I don't know if any of these parts are the best parts or best value.
I plan to use the computer for general use, gaming, and video production. The video editing/rendering is why I'm getting a quad core, that and my ADHD. I might just reuse my old GPU (Nvidia 8500 GT), but I'm getting a 520W PSU since I'll probably need to upgrade it eventually and some of the ones I looked at required a minimum of 500W. The rest of my choices are mostly just looking for the best value that can be upgraded well into the future.
Case: Antec 300 Black Steel
Mobo: MSI 870-GSI
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 945
RAM: Corsair 4 GB (2x2)
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black
PSU: Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W
So is this a good computer build? Will these parts work together? Are there better/comparable parts available for less? Should I get a new GPU for Christmas?
Thanks in advance for any help. Starting with reading through that wall of text.
