Hi all, this is my first post here so I hope this doesn't get asked daily. Anyway, I'm looking to build my first computer and all of the premade machines on various sites I've looked at are lacking something I will not do without (crappy graphics card, comes w/vista...you get the idea). So I'd like to build a machine that has decent
graphics capability for gaming on the fairly tight budget of $500 to 700.
Other than price I'm looking for space to expand ram and graphics eventually. I can afford the basics now and will be upgrading as cash allows. Anyway thanks for whatever assistance you can give!
After searching a bit I came up with these parts though I can't figure out a good mobo/processor and I'm sure that there are better (cheaper) parts to be filled here.
