Default Quick build.

Can someone come up with a product list from Neweggs of a decent built that doesn't necessarily need to run vista, but can, if you can manage.

The budget's around $500-$700.

Looks promising, are you sure that everything is compatible? Well, I'll double check. They seem alright, thanks a bunch. Now Ill just need to look for a PSU.

Oh and are these alright?

LGs are pretty good for DVD burners.

For the PSU, I would suggest the XClio GOODPOWER 500w.

lol...phucng_10...How did you forget to suggest the most important part of the build?...and you too Vaanish.

They all forgot the PSU. Alright, well I reviewed the first list and it seems promising, thanks Vaanish. But I'll take a look at Phucng's build list and see what he has to offer.

And for the PSU: I was looking at this...

Newegg.com - FSP Group (Fortron Source) Blue Storm II 500 ATX 2.2V 500W Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CSA, VDE, NEMKO, CNS, CE, CB, FCC - Retail

...since one of the tutorials on the other part of the forum suggested this brand, but the one you gave me had a good amount of 5's.

The thing is, it's my cousin's computer. And I'm not that comfortable about him getting a better computer than me, Lol.


Done. So phucng's parts are a little under vaanish? Well not considering the PSU since it beats it by a mere .06. xD

Vaanish's build will perform better, with overclocking. That FSP isn't bad either.
