All rite guys, need your opinions on this one. Been thinking of building my comp for a while and decided to finally do it. Did a lot of research online and this is what I have so far.
Coolermaster Wavemaster (Silver) $123.00
PC Power and Cooling 510 Watt SLI Power Supply $219.99
AMD Athlon X2 4400+ Dual Core Processor $497.00
Thermaltake XP-120 Heatsink $68.99
OCZ 2BG DDR400 Platinum System Memory $227.59
Western Digital Caviar SE16 250BG SATA Hard Drive $125.00
DFI Lanparty nF4 SLI-DR Motherboard $180.00
BFG GeForce 7800GTX OC Video Card
Creative Labs X-Fi Xtrememusic Sound Card $126.00
NEC Black IDE DVD Burner $39.94
Microsoft Windows XP Pro with SP2 $141.95
Logitech G7 Mouse $54.98
Microsoft Natural 4000 Keyboard $49.99
Samsung 204T LCD Monitor $549.99
Klipsch Promedia 2.1 Speakers $134.99
My budget is basically $3000 and this thing is almost 3000 flat. Im gonna use this comp for gaming and general everyday use. Throw me any suggestions or parts that aren't that good. I am gonna OC but only a moderate amount (like maybe 2.6Ghz on the 4400). Im gonna add another GTX down the line, but no point to that rite now.
Finally, the only thing I am really unsure of is the monitor. I really want to stick with an LCD. Not sure though if any 1600*1200 ones are good for gaming.
