Long time no see! I've finally bitten the bullet and have decided to build my first tower, and I found a budget in order to get into, I guess, entry level PC gaming. I've always worked with old desktops and newer laptops and never dwelled into the realm of possibility that PC offers. To put it into perspective, the last time I used a desktop was probably in 2009. Leaving out personal details, I have found what I think is a decent budget PC for $250, and that's the budget I'm sticking with. Here are my specs, please let me know how I did (I researched, followed, and kept my eyes glued to YouTube videos to find a build that I'm comfortable with): Lenovo ThinkCentre M91p (Core i5-2400, 8 GB RAM, 500 HDD, No OS) GTX 760 2GB w/ Double BIOS Thermaltake TR2 TR-600 600W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready Crossfire Ready The questions I have are: Will the 760 even fit in the case? And is the Double BIOS version as good as the rest of the cards or is there a better one to go with $5 more shipping? Will the PSU's wattage combined with the GTX 760 be enough to overclock? Is there going to be any bottlenecking? Is this the best build available for the price? Any benchmarks you recommend me to look at? Thank you all very much for the help! Any would be appreciated, and I'll take any feedback I can. Really excited!
