Hi everyone, So I'm going off to college soon and I plan on getting a laptop and a desktop for my dorm (one to fall back on if the other dies for some reason). I am pretty sure I know which laptop I am getting, but I am having a harder time building a decently priced small gaming rig for a desktop. Approximate Purchase Date: Most likely during the black friday/holiday season Budget Range: 500-800 w/ rebates System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Surfing the Net, Schoolwork Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, RAM (4gb GSkill DDR3), Hard Drive (1.5 TB Samsung 5400 rpm) Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, Tigerdirect, (any site is okay by me) Country: USA Parts Preferences: by brand or type Intel CPU, NZXT Vulcan MicroATX Case, SSD Overclocking: Maybe SLI or Crossfire: Maybe Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 Additional Comments: Needs to be small but very powerful, which is why I selected the Vulcan case. Here is what I have so far: AMD Phenom II X4 955-109.99 NZXT Vulcan Micro Tower Case-69.99 OCZ 600W PSU- 69.99 (I'm bad at finding PSU's, so this is open to change) Gigabyte GeForce 560 Ti- 220 Thanks Everyone. Update: I will also take any suggestions for a small case that supports ATX Motherboards. Update 2: Switched AMD processor to Intel, Most likely going to purchase an I5 2400. The board will also have to change because of this.
