So you need a mother board, CPU, disk drives,RAM and PSU correct? I'm guessing your building a gaming computer with that powerful graphics card. Any specifications you would like to have in the build? Do you need a monitor?keyboard, mouse, would you like a sound card?

Can you use parts from your old PC, like the 700 W PSU, WD 640, and the DVD burner.....every little bit helps.

wouldn't make much sense to gut a perfectly good computer for minor parts like opticals and PSU.... unless he already has those other parts lined up to be sold.


Anyways, so thats $1300 w/o the video card? or including the video card?

If w/o, then its gonna be quite a powerful computer!

assuming you mean 1300 including the 5850 this would be good, otherwise you should chuck in a 5870.

total 991 before MIR. If you have 1300 not including the 5850 chuck in a UD5 and some better ram, gskill PI's would be good.
