Default Re: Best Desktop I can get for 1200?

The ram he has listed is Sold Out, as in no longer on sale at that price. I would get this instead but it's a little more. - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

Instead of the ATI 6950 I would go with GTX 460, it's $170 after a $30 rebate - EVGA 01G-P3-1370-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

I wouldn't buy a "re-certified" power supply, not even a PC Pwr. & Clg. And you don't need a 750 watt power supply. I would go with this for $5 more after a rebate. - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

You could get a slightly smaller hard drive. - Western Digital Caviar Black WD7501AALS 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Maybe a Microsoft Wireless keyboard instead of the Razer - Microsoft J9C-00001 Ergonomic Wireless Keyboard 6000
