Default Taking suggestions.

Hey guys, I want to build a new pc, and I have been looking for over a week just trying to figure out what to get. My budget is 800$ but I'd love something that will perform flawless, but that will not get my light monthly fee go up. Also, I would like a computer that will keep itself warm and will last for a long time.

I am upgrading from a Intel Pentium 4, so im not that crazy on getting the latest yet.

But i'll take suggestions.

Should I build it or just buy a pre-built one?

Build your own.

Build a PC - Introduction to Building your PC - PCitYourself.com

I'm surprised no one hasn't already responded to your request.

I would go with 3x2GB of DDR3 1600. And if you ever plan on overclocking a nice heatsink should be an option to consider. But you can always buy one later

CPU/Mobo Combo saves $25: Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

Go with this RAM: Newegg.com - OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1600LV6GK - Desktop Memory

Besides that good build.
