Re: First build.. need help
That build is very good and will be more than enough for CS:S. You could lower the parts and down a notch and still be able to achieve great fps. You would probably save around $100.
On the other hand though, that rig will last you a while and you can play all current games @ max.
Change the power supply to a Corsair 550vx or if you want to save a little money Corsair 450vx.
Change the hard drive to a Western Digital.
And just to let you know (you may already know) that to get the full 4 gig of ram (windows recognition) you have to have a 64bit OS. I recommend Vista Home Premium 64 BIT.
Back to stay?
