Question New Build

I have a DX58SO and i7. I am buying 6gb of ram. I need a video card with HDMI. What do you suggest.

New Egg has OCZ ram -6gb for 104.00 after rebate. (DDR3).

What else would I need to buy. I am not a gamer,yet. But I do a lot of graphic work. Photos, videos,etc. I also draw.

Thanks for your help

You asked what else you need to buy: case, optical drive, hard drive, the video card, and if you need monitor/mouse/keyboard. Do you have a budget?

Ah ok I misunderstood. How much are you willing to spend on the video card? You won't need anything too fancy if you aren't gaming.

You would be more than fine with a $100 9800gt like this since you aren't gaming, yet:

Newegg.com - XFX PVT98GYDLH GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

I want to thank you As soon as I get the rest of my parts I will be getting rid of my old parts. I now have a 2 quad-Q6600@240GHz. 4 gb of ram, G33/31 express chipset. Home Pre. Maybe I will post this on this site. I am new at this, but also addicted to computers.

Thanks again..

No problem. You can post in the Buy/Sell/Trade forum here but you need 100 posts to do that, so stick around and talk computers with the rest of us addicts to boost up your post count :P
