Thanks for all the replies guys. I really appreciate it.
I came up with a build using ur guy's help and stuff you recommended. Here's what I came up with. I would appreciate any input or any substitutions that u will suggest instead of the ones I came up with.
CPU - I was debating whether I should go with the E6400 or E6600 or even AMD's 5000+. Any suggestions? For now, Im going for the E6600.
Motherboard - Anything that has 2 PCIe x 16 slots. I think I need that for SLI or something.
Graphics Card - This, im not quite sure if I should decide on this one yet since I know they will have those new DX10 cards coming out but Im not sure when. So for now, I chose the EVGA GeForce 7950GT.
Power Supply - Didnt really care for this much, I was only looking for one that has 2 PCIe x 16 Power thingy. Haha, this shows how a noob I am in building computers.
Case - NZXT Apollo. I only like this because it is cheap and it has the viewable side or something.
Memory - Many people suggested this one.......
Hard Drive - Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM 500GB Hard Drive. I am open for 320GB Hard Drives though. I don't even know why I want 500GB.
LCD Screen - I really wanted a 22" widescreen display so I thought about this....
CD/DVD Drive - Anything that burns DVD's.
Operating System - Windows Vista Basic. I am wondering, is this one a full version of it because its only $100.00 and Windows XP Home is just about the same price. You would think that Vista would cost more. I dont know. Need HELP!
Extra Fan - It fits right on the PCI Slot on your case, so i thought this would be great. I dont know, what do you guys think?
Card Reader - No Comment.
Total Cost: $1,696.89 without tax and shipping and handling.
I know its over my budget and anything that would lower this cost is greatly appreciated. Any opinions? Thanks guys.
Here's my questions....
1. Should I get Intel E6400, E6600 or AMD 5000+ Processor? I would mainly use this PC for gaming.
2. Is the Windows Vista Home Basic Edition I have above is a full version or is that an upgrade version? It seems like its too cheap for a really new Operating System.
3. 500GB or 320 GB Hard Drive?
4. 19" vs 22" screen. Do I really need 22" screen? Like I said, I will only use this PC for gaming and to me, it seems like a 22" screen is good especially that the price difference between 22" and 19" is less than $100.00
Thats all for now.
