    hi i was wondering if i can get help on putting together a pc able to run my needs for Graphic design and gaming as well.I tend to go over the top and buy thing i dont normally need and spend loads of money in the process and layer on regret doing so lol.So i was wondering if you all as a community would lend a hand in helping me save money and also putting together a "Desktop DIY kit


    Price range is ($900ish but cheaper is better if i can swap what i wdnt need at all and also i would have to save 3-4 paychecks in order to get what i have down there so if you can make it cheaper it would send me well on my way faster to getting my tools f design and destruction lol

    The specs look really good.

    I'm a little lukewarm about using cheapo PSUs and prefer name brands and models like Corsair myself, because if the PSU goes out it can take out other components with it. Corsair also has models with 5+ years warranty.
