Question Game Pc---HelP Plz

Ive saved up some moneys and have decided to build a new pc. My old 1.2ghz 384mb ram pc isnt cuttin it anymore. Well.... I do not have a bunch of money for one and I want somthing that I can upgrade in the future. Ive been wanting to build my own computer and thought I needed some help from some of u Experts out ther. If you guys could help me find somthing of good quality for about $600? I would really appreciate it. Just want somthing that can handle most games on hi quality and im a big internet gamer. Thanks....

Also i would like to know what sli is. I keep hearing its a waste of money.

well i'm not good with pricing in US dollars so i'll leave the others to that. SLI is a technology that allows two graphics cards to be used simultaneously for a single video output stream. two video cards bridged=twice the power basically or thats the idea. so yeah it kinda is a waste of money because it means not only having the more expensive motherboard required for SLI but two higher end nVIDIA GFX cards. some people at this forum are supporting a boycott of SLI lol.

sli is by no means necessary. yes 6800gt's are pretty powerful that should play games like bf2 on good settings without too many problems.

if you have an alright hdd and dvd/cd drive keep them for the moment to keep costs down on the main components. then they are easy to replace later

Duh, because you had $1000. You can do a lot more with another $300. Or are you just putting us on?

So what if you have $1000 to spend. Jayare012 has his budget and you have yours, you dont have to rub it in his face. Why dont you put it in your sig so we can all see how good it is.

You could buy the same RAM baronvongogo posted in a 1gb set http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145440 and save $8.
