Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more! $499.99 w/ $10 MIR
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more! $259.98 w/ $20 MIR
Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit for System Builders w/ Tech Guarantee - Operating Systems $109.99

I'm a few dollars over-budget at $869.96 but with the MIR's I'm below the $850 mark

How big or what is the native resolution of your monitor? This can determine how much you can spend in terms of gaming performance with the graphic card.

that is a build i threw together for another thread. Take out the case, add an os, and perhaps get a bit better of a gpu if you like.

That build there came to $709 before MIR, -30 after the rebate...so take off the case and you have a good bit of room for a better video card with the budget of 850

No it's not bad. It's just that you wouldn't have to spend to get a high end graphic card. A mid-end graphic card can run games buttery smooth on that resolution.

Taking from both Slaymate's and Luke's suggestions:


Processor - Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard - ASUS P7P55D LE LGA 1156 Intel P55
Memory - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM 1600 (PC3 12800) Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBRHK
Graphics card - XFX HD-485X-ZDFC Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256-bit GDDR3
Power supply - CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX 550W ATX12V V2.2
Hard drive - Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache
OS - Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit w/ Free upgrade to Windows 7 coupon


It's $820.93, all free shipping.

There is always a risk, but that risk is very small. Most of the builds around here with similar components, usually end up pretty well. As long as everything is built and put together correctly, it'll all be good to go. The components we suggest around here, we try to pick out the best in quality and price. And even though every company has it's bad lemons, there's a very small chance one of them will be DOA.

If something goes wrong, you can always come to us. We'll be here to help you out. And you'll learn troubleshooting, etc.
