Default Re: Desktop died, building new one, need advice

Firstly..

Budget? 500 is a nicely built system.

You said you have 5 pci cards. What are they? So much has been put on the mobo now that other than a top quality sound card or wireless NIC, its all intergrated.

I'd get a new SATA optical, and run your ide drives off 1 riddon. For 30 bucks youre getting a modern dvd-rw, so why not eh.

Also, what are your uses? be real with yourself on this. And youre gonna here lotsa of get this than oc the beech out of it. But be honest... are you really that into oc'ing?

Give a bit more info, and take a browse through other, 5 to 700 build threads.

i don't really used the pci card slots, I got a ATI card, sound card and my wireless card that I had on it...

I don't even know what oc'ing means so I would probably say no to OC'ing lol

And lastly I will mainly be using this computer for gaming, and maybe photoshop and some music.
