Guys just stop heckling him. If he wants a dell, he should get it. Remember, this is his first desktop, probably his firt computer........ Hes really a newbie, so we shouldn't overwhelm him.

Get any case you want. Get the Antec 550 watt PSU (for saftey and future). Get the DFI nForce4 Ultra-D motherboard Select one gig of patriot RAM, should be about $100. get the GeForce 6800 GT video card, eVGA model. Get a Seagate hard drive. get a DVDRW drive. floppies, thermal grease, case fan, all that stuff. when ur done, copy and paste your cart into a post here so we can inspect it and make sure its good! Good luck and have fun...
