PC Budget Build with NZXT Phantom 630

Just purchased a NZXT Phantom 630 full tower for my new PC build.
I'm a first time builder, so I have no clue when it comes to compatibility of PC parts and could use some help or examples of a budget build using this tower. Thanks in advance!

  7. Sorry, I failed to mention that I already have a power supply (EVGA 500w 80 plus)
    and a 1TB Toshiba SATA 6.0 Gb/s hard drive, from my old PC. Would these be sufficient for my new build?
    Also just bought NZXT Phantom 630 full tower with fan control and led lighting

  9. Awesome, thank you! :)
    I will consider both builds and see where I can cut some costs without sacrificing performance...my budget is approx $1000, but if I can save some money, my wife will be a little happier lol

  10. So I ran into a snag :(
    I live in Canada, so the parts from newegg.com and other US sites wont ship to my address...
    I looked up the same parts on newegg.ca, and it's gonna cost close to $1500!
    Are there some cheaper alternative parts that I could buy from .ca that will give me close to the same performance/quality build?

  11. without too many sacrifices you can do one under $1100. I'm leaving the power supply in, because your current one isn't great.

    Sorry, I'm a noob lol
