  1. I need a 500$ computer setup for my little sis, she's gonna use it for college, and some games like sims 2 and WOW.

    I have an xtra 7600GT that should be used in the system build.

    Just looking for some extra input.

    Look at Newegg's bare bones systems (Case, power supply and motherboard). Add memory, CPU, heatsink/fan, hard drive and CD/DVD combo drive and there you go...

    Hmm, I guess I should be more specific?

    What parts would you use? I've put some combinations up on the public lists at newegg but haven't gotten any good reviews or responses.

    Should I go MicroAtx or ATX
    Should I go AMD or Intel (Dualcore prefered)
    What PSU do you recommend? same for RAM and HD.

    Basically I've put some lists together and gotten the collective response of "Ehhhh" I'm looking for nice build for the money....
