My last thread gave me lots of help, and now I'm ready to order, and would just like to clarify this will do good, I changed a few things from my last build. I'm buying all this stuff from iBUYPOWER, they seem to have pretty cheap prices. This is solely for gaming and the internet.
Games I plan to run:
And some more, but the others don't have such major requirements.
Raidmax Ninja-918 ATX Mid-tower Case w/450W Power Supply
Standard Case Power Supply
[939-pin] AMD® Athlon-64 X2 3800+ CPU w/ Hyper Transport Technology
Certified CPU Fan and Heatsink
Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe nForce4 SLI-x16 Chipset w/7.1 Sound, Dual Gb LAN, S-ATA Raid, USB 2.0, IEEE 1394, Dual PCI-E MB
2048 MB [1024MB X2] DDR-400 PC3200 Memory Module Corsair-Value or Major Brand More Options
[PCI]-Express 16x] Nvidia GeForce 7800 256MB w/DVI + TV Out Video
120 GB HARD DRIVES [S-ATA] Seagate 120 GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache Hard Drive
16X Dual Format/Double Layer DVD±R/±RW + CD-R/RW Drive
3D Premium Surround Sound Onboard
600W PMPO 3 PCS Super Bass Subwoofer Speaker System
MS Windows XP Home Edition w/Service Pack-2
Wireless 802.11g 54Mbps PCI Adapter
It all comes out to $1,516. That's without a monitor.
I changed some stuff around to lower the cost. I need some money to ensure a Ps3 if it turns out to be expensive
Will the 450W PSU that comes with the case be sufficient? The
NZXT PF-500 500 Watt Power Supply is another option. is the NZXT worth the extra money?
Also, I heard that iBUYPOWER's LCD monitors aren't very good for gaming, is this true? If it is, does any one know of some places that sell good gaming LCD monitors?
