Default New parts!

I need some new parts.

Budget: unknown yet, but I'm assuming it's 300~400

What I need:

PSU - to power x1900xtx and future vid cards
CPU Cooler - for e4300
Case - mid atx
RAM - 2GB or 4GB of DDR2 for DS3 REV 2.0 (965p, remember, it has issues, i know gskill is fine, just dunno of ballistix)

also, can I fit in a 3870 or 8800gt? Or will I need to save up later for that?

Have a look at my Recommended PC Components thread, in my sig. It's based on budgets.

But for a quick suggestion:

PSU - Xclio Greatpower 550
HSF - Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
Case - Cooler Master 690
RAM - Ballistix should work

Wait a little, the price may go down for the holidays.

I chose all of those, but a different case.

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Elite 330 RC-330-KKN1-GP Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

Any better PSU's for the price, or a little more?

could it do 2 3870's in xfire?

Yes, it can handle the Crossfire of two 3870s.

Another power supply recommendation, is the Corsair 550VX. Great power supply for the money.

The 550vx seems better. I like corsair more. It seems more reliable for the money.

267 bucks. not bad.
