Best advice? Hang around here for a while, ask some questions, read a lot. Just soak it all in.

Before long you'll have a good grasp on what you want to do, and what you need to do it with.

A word of caution, though: Most on here automatically suggest the newest and the biggest, which isn't for everyone. Many like to shout 'reformat and reinstall', which, again, is not for everyone.

Form your own opinions, and stick to 'em.

1.) Tell us how much money you got
2.) what do you plan on doing with this computer
3.) How much space do you need (in hard drive)
4.) WIll you be overclocking?

oh, and:
-ddr3 won't come out for at least a year or two, if not more
-3000+ should be able to handle everything
-antec has 600W PSU's?? i thought they only made up to 520
- Well for 24pin psu's, OCZ's are good, or if you're on a budget the antec TPII 520W should work
-you should wait to see how the ATI x900 series (the 7800's competitor) does

Don't buy the 7800. It's not a vast improvement from last gen cards and frankly isn't worth it.

I would see how the new cards match up to it (ATI)

1. expect the new ATI to be better.....because it's released at a later date = more time to work on it = it's going to be better. release it now and i'd be bettin' 7800 would mop the floor. why you ask? because it's release and workin'.....ATI's isn't release...which, one can only assume, doesn't work how it should right now.

2. i've read the 7800 is a pretty decent jump. not crazy, to me not worth the money (simply caus ei'm a college student lol and can't afford it) but seen (on here) that single 7800 can beat sli ultra's in some benchmarks...which....is sayin' a little somethin' somethin'.....
