The 5450 is a GREAT LITTLE CARD but for games and CAD work I'd rather see you pick from THE LIST. Here's the link.
Even the sub 100 cards blow away that 5450.
The PSU is OK but if this was mine I'd pass it up for a PSU with a SINGLE 12V RAIL to avoid headaches.
There is another issue looming here. Will the designer of this thing tell you exactly how to install Windows properly? I find many install Windows and then complain about performance. Too many times I have found them with a Windows clean install and using Microsoft's subpar driver update buttons.
I am doing my very first computer build as i am into 3d design and video editing and all of the ready made ones are far too expensive! As this is my first time I am having trouble working out which parts are compatible with eachother and I decided to come here for help!
Here is my list of parts
Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 Socket AM3+ 7.1 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard
AMD Bulldozer FX-8 8120 3.1Ghz Socket AM3+ 8MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processo
NZXT Phantom Black Full Tower Case
Samsung SH-222BB SATA DVD Optical Drive | OEM
Seagate 500GB Barracuda Hard Drive
TP-Link TL-WN727N Wireless-N150 USB Adapter
Sapphire HD 5450 1GB DDR3 HDMI DVI VGA Out PCI-E Low Profile Graphics Card
CIT 700W Black Edition PSU 12cm Fan Dual 12v Rail 20+4pin 2x SATA
Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Vengeance Memory
Could someone please tell me if these parts are compatible and if they would be good enough for 3d design.
Also, I was wondering what I would have to do if this computer broke, only the individual parts would have a warranty and i may not know what is broken and what needs to be sent back to ebuyer.
Thanks a lot in advance,
