Time to start a new rig...
Hey guys been gaming for a little under a decade now and have seen worlds of change in hardware lately. I normally play FPS shooter's (CSS, BF2, DOD source etc) but am not limited to them (EQ2 aswell). Last year I bought a notebook to take to college with me, and at the time it had the best gaming parts around. 128mb 9700 mobility ati, amd 3700+, 1gb ram, 19" lcd etc... And it's a great little rig for the space. But recently I dropped out of college and started working fulltime, so I no longer need my trusty laptop...
So that said I will be starting with my first full buildup Desktop gaming system. I have excellent mechanical knowledge ( welding, soldering, electrical skills etc) and will be making the all aluminum case (since i can't find one i love...).
I have assembled all these parts/prices from newegg and am not set on any, looking for gaming/performance only...cost is marginal, shooting for 4500$ but can be extended...
$1,039.00 AMD FX-60 2.6hz dual core
750$ GeFORCE 7800gtx 512mb memory 650mhz core ddr3
180$ LANPART or geforce board 180$ SLI supported DDR
150$ 2x 1gb ddr 400 corsair 184pin
155$ 74gb raptor 10,000rpm
219$ PC power and cooling 510w powersupply

250$ Liquid Cooling
840$ 21.3" NEC LCD w/ 8ms response time .. maybe a 24" Dell ultrasharp LCD 12ms??
