Do you already have a case, power supply, hard drive, etc? Also why are you buying the video card from bestbuy instead of newegg? If you already have the items i mentioned, what you have listed should be very nice.

Nice choices except the video card.

You can get the eVGA 7800GTX no oc and save some money, also buy it from newegg, because bestbuy will overcharge you for it.

You can easily overclock that card to the same speeds as that BFG

yeah, i already have all other components.

didn't mean to list best buy, was using that to compare to another on new egg to make sure they are the same for when i listed the new egg link.

reason for best buy is because my uncle can get me the card for around wholesale

yeah WOAH that video card is overpriced. You can get an evga or bfg 7800gtx for probably 100-200$ less at newegg or somewhere.

And if you're not going to overclock, save 40$ and get some valueselect
