I am a newbie, and plan on building a computer. I have already picked out my Case, decided on what RAM (4-512 MB 184-pin, DDR400) I will get, and that all amounts to about $300. I would appreciate suggestions on what else to get regarding my motherboard, processor, hard drive, and PSU to get if I am making this primarily for games. I would like to keep the price range in the $800's range, any suggestions? Here is a list of parts that I am thinking of for the comp... Does this all look compatible? _________________________________________________________________ Processor-AMD Athlon 64 X2 $250 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103545 ^ Is there a way to get a step down from this? | I want pretty good performance, but I don't know about shelling out so much money for it >.< _________________________________________________________________ Motherboard-ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Socket 939 $133 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131540 _________________________________________________________________ Memory-4x CORSAIR 512MB 184-Pin- $220 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145479 _________________________________________________________________ Hard Drive-Western Digital Raptor 74 GB 10,000 RPM $160 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16822136033 _________________________________________________________________ Power Supply-SILVERSTONE 12V 500 Watt Power Supply $113 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817256008 _________________________________________________________________ Case-XCLIO ATX Mid Tower $110 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811103010 _________________________________________________________________ Sound Card-Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 $75 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16829102178 _________________________________________________________________ Does someone also have any ideas for a graphics card?
