Default Best choice, building a computer

Ok I've found a list of stuff that I'm gonna buy for the computer

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...503&CatId=1632
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...459&CatId=1528
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...131-327&depa=1
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...p?EdpNo=586829
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...6890&CatId=524

I'm new to this so tell me what else do I need to buy and is all these stuff worth it. Thanks =]

I know I still have to buy a monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc but those aren't important now

Alright. I don't know how much you can spend, but at the looks of the hardware you're getting, looks you can''t spend much. Also, is this gaming or for programming and other junk??. and please tell us how much you can spend.

Everything looks good, the case is a little overpriced because of the lack of airflow. look for a nice looking case with some open fan slots.
If you're concerned with looks this case will do the trick, it has decent cooling as well

Better take a good look at TigerDirect.com, alot of their product prices are shown after rebate. You only have 30 days after the product is sent to get your rebate.

Rebate's are never fun and are ALWAYS a pain in the rear to deal with.

yeah i agree with codeine they have computers for 400 (supposedly) but after all the rebates its like 700 and then you find out that it doesnt come with a monitor or operating system, i think its a little dishonest which is why im a newegg fan
