Every other time I've just stalled and really gotten nowhere, but this time I intend to order as soon as possible, rather than waiting and just bumping the same thread. I'm looking for every part, including the case, monitor, CD/ DVD drive, recommended RAM and any cables I might need, but not including mouse, keyboard, or operating system. The only parts I'm pretty sure of are an 8800GT 512 mb (probably eVGA, since that's what most people say), and a Q6600. Around $1000 is what I'm looking for, but I'll go to around $1100 if it's worth it. I'm looking for reliable parts for what I can get. If someone else posts a part or parts that look good, confirm that it's a part worth buying, rather than suggesting further alternatives. The price limit is only a guideline for picking parts, you can just recommend one thing if that's all you want to.
