Default Need Help :)

I am thinking of building a computer soon.
I need your help on which parts I should buy.
This also includes the monitor, mouse, and keyboard.
I don't need SLI or CrossfireX.
I am trying to save as much money as I can.
Also the shipping to Puerto Rico is very expensive.
I am planning on keeping this build for 3-4 years.
I won't be upgrading unless it is really necessary.

Budget: $1100-1300

Normal high school student usage, and good for gaming in the future.

Default Re: Need Help :)

mobo: biostar tp45
cpu: intel e8400
cpu cooler: sunbeam core contact
gpu: ati 4850 512mb
psu: corsair 650tx
hdd: seagate 750gb 7200.11
ram: ocz blacks, 4gb
optical, case, monitor, mouse, keyboard are up to you really.

I'd recommend an antec 900/nxzt tempest, 22 or 24 inch monitor if you can squeeze it into your budget, a g5 mouse and g15 keyboard and whatever else you want.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.
