Default 700$ bargain buy

So, im looking to build a new gaming Pc. Wanting to keep it under 700 bucks.. I dont do much overclocking but i love gaming. I would like suggestions on what to buy. All i am sure of is that i want an AMD64x2 and an Nvidia graphx card. Im a lil behind on the differant cores, and newer graphx cards.

So, someone get me Vdeo Card, CPU, cooling, Mobo, PSU, *no case needed*,HDD, and Ram.

Under 700 of course. im a broke *** player hater. show me some luvinz.

It doesn't say that http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128316 supports Core 2 Duo, but I guess it would.

What are you really getting for your extra $50 if you go with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128012

Faster DDR2 and better NB for O/C?

hey i'd recommend shopping around if you're looking at a 7900gs. i got mine for about 140 dollars at best buy on sale, no rebates too. It's the same brand as well (PNY).

Don't get PNY 7900GS

Get XFX 7900GS Extreme, it is much faster and cheaper
