Default Just confirmed the parts on my first build.

Let me start by saying i will be using this Computer mainly to:

Surf the Net
Watch Video Clips on the net
Play games (java) on the net
Download NFL, NHL,NBA games via torrent.
Play a couple High End games such as Madden 08', NHL 08', NBA 08', and a few others. But Im not an avid gamer, only a few times a week(if that).
I would also like to have multiple things running at once without lagging.
I also want to be able to upgrade with ease in the future.


I am pretty set in my parts, but if you guys think i messed up on a part i am definitely willing to listen.



Parts are:

Your link is bad. We won't be able to see whats in your shopping cart. (since it uses cookies to display).

If you want to show your parts you have to creat a new egg account, then create a saved wish list, then click the option to share it. Then you can post the link for it.

Well, it looks pretty good. But I suggest you up the hard drive to 320gb/500gb. That way you have more room for videos. And that Powersupply is overkill, You won't need anymore then 600W but make sure it's a good trustable brand.

Yeah that 770w is overkill, but it will be good for down the road, and i got a deal. When i purchased the Ballistix memory, that PowerTek PSU came with it for a good combo deal. It saved me 100$. So it was a deal i couldn't pass up. Unless that PSU is bad quality.

Well the reviews posted are split lol. One says it's 5/5 the other 0/5. It seems like a good brand, but you might want to ask one of the senior techies.
