Re: first build
thanks for the advice. It is a r/w drive, sorry for the mistake in the post. As I said, this is my first build, but I had a gateway desktop and upgraded from integrated graphics to a discrete graphics card, and the system ran noticeably faster and smoother, of course the graphics improved, and I am somewhat of a gamer so I am definitely looking for that effect. For the processor, I actually learned that the fx 4100 isnt even compatible with the asus m5a97, its the only bulldozer that doesnt, so im now planning on going for an amd phenom ii x4 965. I also found a better deal on memory, so now i'm planning on running ripjaw 2x2
Yes, I could upgrade the processor if I save money on the graphics card, but would a better processor running on integrated graphics be worth it?
