Default Gaming Rig. What Do you think?





Everything you don't see I have. Budget: Whatever's the bang for the buck. I'm all about deals. Suggest anything that's a good deal.

case: Micro Center - Three Hundred ATX Case
psu: Corsair TX 750W ATX 12V Power Supply - CMPSU-750TX - Buy.com (over kill but its cheaper than anything else ull find)

i would also get 4 gb of ram instead of 2

i would also change ur mobo to this:
Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TForce TP43D2A7 LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Well 4GBs of ram isnt nessisary, 2GBs will be fine, however, it is very cheap at the moment so its a good deal.

If you have a quad, go 4GB of ram. If you have a dual go with 2GB of ram. Quads are able to multitask more which equals more memory usage. So going 4 gigs wouldn't hurt if you have a quad.
