Hello,
PC noob here. Just wanted to get some feedback on this potential 1st build. I've been needing a new computer for a WHILE now so I'm choosing to put it together myself rather than get a store bought one put together.
Any tips, advice, anything, will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you!

Well I added up the parts and it'll come out to about 700-720 not including the OS (which I'm probably going with Windows 7) so I wouldn't want it to go too much above that as I'm on a budget.
