Okay so these are the components I have chosen for a build I am doing for my parents, Ive never built a computer from scratch before so I could do with a bit of help. First of all I need a PSU, I have no clue about what I need when it comes to PSU's so a little help on that would be good. Also I could do with someone checking that everything is compatible and that my MoBo has all the necessary ports to accomodate my components and the case, It needs to be a long term PC so it needs to be fast enough to last for like 5 years plus.. If you have any other recommendations on more cost effective components they would very much appreciated, anything that could help this PC be more awesome is welcome here Thanks in advance!!!!
