I have $1000 as my budget, not including the monitor. I'm trying to build the best gaming machine I can for my money. So far, here is what I have:
Motherboard - ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Socket 939
CPU - AMD Athlon 64 4200+ Manchester 2000 MHz Socket 939
RAM - Corsair XMS 1 GB (2 x 512 MB) 184-pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC3200)
PSU - Antec SmartPower 500W
Video card - BFG Tech 7800GT 256MB
Case - undecided, but would like suggestions!
HDD - WD 120 GB SATA (or can I get a nice OEM one off newegg?)
Total - $990
How is this build so far? I'm fairly new to this, so I don't know much. Will the parts even fit together?
Where should I spend more/less money on?
