Cool Re: $800 Limit for new build, please help?

A question about the case, Cooler Master Centurion 5, those it come with more USB ports than the two in the front because it doesn't look like it has any in the back?

B1gap1 I know you'r getting sick of me but thanks for your help, but one more question I hope, what type of monitor do you recommend and can that power supply you mentioned handle that video card? Thanks.

lol....I don't get sick of this stuff. I enjoy helping others. As for the type of monitor, I would suggest:
Newegg.com - Hanns·G HW-191DPB Black 19" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1 Built in Speakers - Retail
or
Newegg.com - Hanns·G HW-223DPB Black 22" 5ms HD 1080P supported DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers - Retail
or this (if you have the extra money):
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 226BW Black 22" 2 ms (GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1(DC 3000:1) - Retail

And yes, that power supply can handle that graphic card. If you want, you can get this one:
Newegg.com - Rosewill RP550V2-D-SL 550W SLI Ready-ATX 12V V2.01 Power Supply 115/230 V CSA,UL,TUV - Retail

the build b1gapl suggested will be suffice for u and it will last u as long as u want it to last. i dont think u will require more than 320gb for hard drive coz ur just downloading music. and later if u need more, u can just buy another one when u feel the need, coz hard drives are going down in prices, so u'll save a lot when u buy another one later when u need it. but i would suggest 2 gigs of ram right now so u wont need to upgrade anytime soon.
good luck

Wink Re: $800 Limit for new build, please help?

Thanks for everyones help, I'm going to put in a order either tonight or later on this week. I'm just concerned for the monitor the 19" one, reviews say of dead pixiels. I might just go to best buy or Office Max to buy one, if I can't find nothing better.

Red face Re: $800 Limit for new build, please help?

what will happen if I replace the 3600 with the AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ Brisbane 2.1GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor. Will I have to replace anything or leave it alone.

You won't have to replace anything.
