Hi, thank you for all your comments
I've reconsidered my rig again. I don't play alot of games, I'm not sure that I would either.... but I would want to play a few. FEAR specifially, and Lego Star Wars I and II
I've checked on the 8800 GTX and I do want that, somewhere down the road. I've read you need at least an E6600 to respect it
I'm haven't confirmed whether New Egg delivers to Canada. However, that's for tomorrow or the next day....
All prices CAD
X-Fi Extreme Music (120$)
Intel E6300 C2D (218$)
(Sata price 81$ each so 162$)
Seagate 400 Gb Sata II 16 Mb Cache (137$)
Lg Flatron 204WTX 20.1 Widescreen (328$) (I do want a 20-22 inch widescreen)
Antec Sonata II Ultra Quiet w/ Smart Power 2.0 ATX12V 2.01 450 Watt PSU (114$)
EN7600GT/256 TV-OUT DVI PCI-E W/ 256MB DDR RETAIL BOX (245$)
I've read the 7600GT is decent with FEAR
however, should i consider the 7900GT because it has dual DVI (for watching tv??)(355$)
I'd like to upgrade to an 8800 GTX eventually, so I dunno. I read it's a friggin' monster in terms of size (and numbers)
For the mobo I'm thinking P5B-DX or P5B-E... they both seem pretty good, but I could definately use some guidance. (prices 225$ and 195$ respectively)
LG Lightscribe DVD-RW (48$)
My budget isn't tightly bounded, because I have an inheritance, but considering I mainly surf, watch movies, listen to music, download it doesn't seem like the end. However, I would like a nice machine. With an eye to Quad-Core and an 8800 GTX
No plans for dual monitors.
Will it be quiet, connect to the internet, have adequate current, can I add another 400 Gb drive later on and maybe even some more memory?
I hazard .... 1600 CAD ....
