Default I NEED YOUR HELP GUYS!!! Please (PSU and Video Card)

Hi guys.

I'm buying this:


I want a 7800 GT and a 500W PSU from Newegg.com

Please show me the best ones for me (please keep it as cheap as possible) and please make sure they are COMPATIBLE (my brother mentioned ATX vs. microATX or something).

We don't know much about computers, so please help!

Thanks a lot guys.

You could build that same PC yourself with well known aftermarket parts, for probably a tiny bit cheaper.

Then of course you'd also need to buy you 7800GT & Antec 550w PSU.
That' be an additional $400+

Pre-built PC's always have some sort of cheap parts or they aren't upgradable.
