Default Help Me Build A Gaming Computer

Can I have some help? I need to completely build a new computer.... But I only have 750 dollars at most. This is a gaming computer, and I already picked out the graphics card. eVGA Geforce 7800GT 256 MB. I'd like to buy all of my stuff from newegg, so could you all direct me towards some good stuff?

So Far, I have:

eVGA Geforce 7800GT 256 MB

So now, I have 450 to buy a processor, mobo, harddrive, RAM, and a case.

AMD Athlon 3200+

G.SKill 1GB (2x512)

Total $508, you really shouldn't go any lower than that

Edit: And here's an idea for a case
Aspire X-plorer (yellow is cheapest)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811144107

I realise that is over your budget and if you want to cut some costs you could get this motherboard
MSI K8N
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130491

and this hard drive
WD 80GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822135106

Errrrrr.... He's not gona get much with $450, getting a 7800GT with a $750 budget wasn't a great idea, IMO

I agree, maybe with that sort of budget you should consider a 6600gt or 6800gs

Hmm well you could hit it easy with a nice 754 comp... I'd try for a s939, but if worse come to worse the s754 won't be dead tomorrow, so it's not a bad choice.


Abit NV8 Mobo, abit's sopposed to have some pretty good oc'ing options.


Aspire X-Plorer Not bad, like someone else said, the yellow one is only $46.

Forton PSU Someone else suggested it, seems pretty good.

Corsair value ram, 1gb stick

Maxtor 100GB SATA HD not bad for $60.

Now, based on shipping you could get;

Athlon64 2800 It's OEM tho so you'll need a heatsink.

Sempron 3400 Not a bad proc, but if you still need cheaper...


Sempron 3100 Only $100, so you get left with about $30 for shipping.

Hope that helps.
