That is out of my price range, and I won't be doing gaming that's more powerful than The Sims. This PC will mostly be entertainment, and dual-monitor web browsing and design.

a 3850 or 8800GT will be more than enough for anything you want to do... although you will find that if you drop a little more on a GPU, you might get into some more intense games just to justify the purchase (and you might even like it! lol)


NZXT Lexa BlackLine w/ Red LEDs | Corsair TX-750 | Gigabyte EP45-DS3P | Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 @ 3.6GHz
2x 2GB Kingston HyperX PC2-6400 @ 960MHz (5-4-4-13) | 3x Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB HDD in RAID5
2x HIS Radeon HD 4850 @ 761/1129 in CrossFireX w/ Thermaltake DuOrbs | Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro
