baron5's build is actually pretty much identical to the one i put lol.

its got a bit more storage though and that monitor.

that case especially seems like a better peice because it is a full tower which will give your rig more space to breath along with the fans.

you'll def be satisfied with your rig. cheers

Only thing is that the price of the processor/motherboard is $10 more without the free $20 rebate and it is seems exactly identical to the one you showed me.

Edit: I noticed that the other one that is expensive has a better motherboard than the one you suggested. However it is a little cheaper so I might just stick with yours.


Also the cost for barons is about $964 total with the monitor so I'm probably sticking with that except I'm going with the i7 combo you selected.


I guess I'm ready to order now

Thank you everyone for all your help

Oh I just realized something, but for the OS of the gaming rig, what should I go with?

Windows 7 is around the corner, but if I build my gaming rig a bit earlier than the release I am unsure what to use.

Would XP be good to use or Vista?

get the windows 7 rc, it is free until june of next year. it is better than both xp and vista.

Windows 7 Release Candidate

make sure you download the 64-bit version so that you can use all the ram.

So first I'll have to make an installation cd. How long does it take to make one?

Burn the ISO as an image. It will only take a few minutes.
