Hey All! I am thinking about building a new gaming computer but would love to get some assistance and advice on the parts to use. So far here's what I've come up with, trying to keep it to a budget of $1,000 CAD. Mobo Asus P5Q-E Socket 775 Intel P45 + ICH10R Chipset Dual-Channel DDR2 1200/1066/800/667MHz Dual Gigabit LAN 8-channel High Definition Audio 2 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 Slots 8x SATA 3Gb/s CPU Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 Quad-Core Socket LGA775, 2.33 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB, 4MB L2 Cache, 45nm (Retail Box) (BX80580Q8200) OR AMD Phenom X4 9950 (125W) Black Edition Quad Core Socket AM2+ , 2.6GHz, 4Mb Cache, 1800MHz HT, 65nm (HD995ZXAGHBOX) Ram OCZ (OCZ2RPR10664GK) DDR2 PC2-8500 1066 MHz Reaper HPC Edition 4GB(2x2048) Dual Channel Kit $55 (after $30 mail-in rebate) HDD Seagate Barracuda (ST31000340AS) 7200.11 SATA NCQ 3.0Gb/s 1000GB (1TB) 32MB Cache (OEM) GPU SAPPHIRE 100259L Radeon HD 4870 512MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card Case Antec Sonata III Quiet Super Mid Tower with 500 Watt power supply For the drives not sure if I want just DVD +/- RW/DL or BluRay, etc. That'll push it a bit past the budget but will see later. Thanks for any help.
