I want some advices on my very first build, too, If OP and you guys don't mind

I'm following this guide for my first build: https://thegreatsetup.com/how-to-build-a-gaming-pc/ and select "Lucky Seventh" is my beast. I think the guide is straightfoward and easy to follow for a newbie like me, but not sure if it worth my money.

Any advices for my first time?

A new thread is a good idea and your budget may be suggested by your choice of the under $700 option.

I'd say $700 is a bit light on. Now days I think an SSD is almost essential (even just a 120GB) plus a HDD. I would go for 16GB Ram over 8GB for the extra ~$50. In terms of overall cost unless you already have them you need to factor in - OS, Monitor, Keyboard/mouse, speakers.

I actually went for the seven beast. You're right. I later realized that I don't need much of a HDD so I removed the part, replace with a 1TB HDD and a 128GB SSD. The system runs on a SSD better than any previous owned PC I had.

Many thanks guys
