I'm an uber-noob at PC building and I just started researching about a week ago...but I already have enough cash to buy parts!
Anyways...here is the build that I would like to do, with prices to the side(not that it matters), and really I was just wondering if it's any good at all...thanks!
Acer 22-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor-$169.99.
AMD Phenom II x4 940 Black Edition 4-Core Processor 3.00GHz-$239.99.
Asus M3A79-T Deluxe AMD790FX Motherboard-$209.99.

Diamond Radeon HD 4850 Video Card 512MB GDDR3 Video Card-$149.99. or.....2x Radeon HD 3870 512MB...which one?
Logitech X-240 3-piece speakers-$34.99.
Windows XP Pro(Do I have
to have a 64-bit version with 4GB of RAM?) -$149.99.
Anyways, that's pretty much it, but I have yet to decide what kind of optical drive(s) to get so if you guys would help me out with that it would be awesome. Also, is getting a sound card that much better than the on-board sound that the motherboard has already? Because the speakers I'm buying aren't that great anyways. Thanks a lot guys~Sam.
