Thumbs up Quattbus builds a pc [success]

So I decided to take your advice and will build a Pc. But this.means I need more.advice.

So what do I need?
Advice on parts etc.

I want 4tb of storage, I've heard 4tb drives are.unstable so I'd get 2x 2tb s.
I will do some gaming on it but.not super high end Fps games.

Also I've never built a Pc before, do you just chuck it all together then put in a windows disk, switch it on and it sets itself up?
Or is there.more.to it?

Are you actually building a PC or going to a place that sells parts and getting them to put it together?

must admit, first time i built a pc when i was like 16 i forgot to put the little spacer things on the back of the mother board and as a result the motherboard was directly touching the case and the thing made an awful short circuity noise when i switched it on. realised what i'd done and went back and chucked them on. started fine after that.

anyway, my two cents:

when it comes to motherboards, I've typically gone with ASUS - decent variety of configuration and they're well supported. Rarely had an issue

i've never heard of 4TB HDD instability, but two HDD's is just more convenient anyway. in my case I run my OS and some core software on the smaller, faster hybrid drive (you could consider an SSD here if you want to spend the money, but it's optional imo) and then I have a 2TB regular HDD for games, video and music files (also makes doing clean OS upgrades easier if you need to)

graphics cards, just check out: http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html and choose one that fits your budget - you don't need to spend more than $250. e.g. a GTX 760 will be more than adequate for ~5 years

I also preference nVidida GeForce chipset cards because whilst they cost a little more than an equivalent AMD card, I've had only bad experiences with AMD cards having compatibility issues, crashing issues and driver corruption. AMD fanboys will counter this with "IT DOESN'T HAPPEN TO ME (except, it does, they are lying)" and "LAWL NVIDIA IS TOO PRICEY". zzzzz

power supply, make sure it's at least 600w (preferably 750w) and get a name brand like Corsair or Antec - don't be tempted by the value, unbranded chinese shit - build quality can be shocking (and system wrecking)

get at least 8GB of RAM because RAM is cheap

then buy or pirate a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or 8 (up to you) power the computer on, plonk the CD in the drive and let it install

*whilst windows can do most of the hardware driver installation for you, some components will need you to insert the CD that came with it once Windows is up and running, as they may not run properly or at all if Windows doesn't recognise them properly

just ask for clarification when you buy parts, most computer nerd store people know their shit

anyway, all the bits you need are:

CPU
motherboard
RAM
power supply
HDD(s)
Case

Optional:
DVD drive
keyboard
mouse
monitor

and when you ask for the bits, just say "I want a motherboard for this CPU", "I want 8GB RAM that is compatible with this motherboard"

power supplies and harddrives are fairly universal - cases are designed to be universal by nature as are peripherals

I'd go with an Intel i5 4440 - marginally more expensive, but much more flexible than the i3.

that motherboard is adequate, just keep in mind if you want usb 3.0 it only supports it from the rear

I'd go for the black model WD HDD - they run faster than the Reds. You could get one Red and one Black and put the stuff you want to load faster on the black and use the Red for mass storage

that case is passable (classed as a mid-tower I believe), though I personally prefer something larger as it could be a tight squeeze for the graphics card. But desk space might be a premium for you, I don't know - up to you.
