Default Intel Build - $550-600 Cap

Hello,

I'm currently searching for someone to make me a list of parts for an Intel Build.

My main uses are...
Itunes
Flight Simulator
mlb.tv [requires a 2.33 gh processor or higher]
and other stuff.

I'm looking for a god amount of memory and I want to be able to run many processes at once like be able to listen to music, and be able to use my flight simulator with no lagg. As I said in parenthesis after mlb.tv I'm looking for it to be over 2.33 ghz. And I'm looking for a cap of between $550-600.

Thank you and if you need any more information please post here.

- Dylan

What do you already have that will be used with this setup? Monitor? Mouse/keyboard? Possibly reusing a case? Reusing optical(s)? Hard drive? Any of this will help you get more since you won't have to buy it.

This computer i'm on now is from 2001, So i'm not sure what to keep on it.

I won't need a monitor or mouse/keyboard.

But this computer only has 75 GB of HDD.

Pretty much, this computer is trash.

this could be a good start.

total is $562 + $10 shipping

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100245L Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

the only thing thats missing is a cd/dvd disc drive which i didn't list because they are all out of stock. adding one into the list would add about $20-$30 max to the cost.

Well its a 45nm Quad-Core, it really doesn't "need" one, but you could pick up either a Xigmatek Rifle or Sunbeam Core Contact Freezer cheaply of Egg
