Hello everybody! I'm posting on Techspot after a very long hiatus. Feels good to be back here. Now to the topic. Initially the idea was to invest in a gaming laptop (specifically the M14x) as I had a lot of travel lined up. However, that's on hold and I'm considering on diverting the funds to build a new desktop from scratch. Current rig: CPU - AMD Phenom II X3 720 Motherboard - ASUS M4A78T-E RAM - 4GB DDR3 (@1333MHz) GPU - Powercolor ATI Radeon HD 4890 HDD - 1TB Seagate (32MB Cache, 7200 RPM), 160GB Seagate Case - Cooler Master CM 690 Keyboard - Microsoft Sidewinder X4 Mouse - Logitech MX 518 Monitor - Samsung B2030 20" (1600x900) Currently I intend to reuse only monitor, mouse, keyboard and the 1TB HDD from my existing machine. The cost of the OS need not be factored in. I do have a copy of Windows 7. The major purpose will be gaming. My budget is around US$ 1500 (INR 85,000), give or take a few. Looking forward to all your suggestions.
