Hello all. I'm building a new system, partly out of the fun of it and partly out of the need for a better computer than the one I have now. I don't intend for it to be a super fast, ultra expensive rig, just to be able to play the new games with good frame rates and mostly on (hopefully) high settings. So, here are the parts I've selected. Be aware that this is the first system I've built from scratch. Mobo ABIT KN9 SLI AM2 Socket 940 ~$120 CPU AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Brisbane 2.6GHz ~$120 GPU XFX GeForce 8600 GT (? XXX ?) ~$130 RAM Corsair XMS2 2GB DDR2 SDRAM 800 (PC2 6400) ~$130 Hard Drive Western Digital Caviar 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive – OEM ~$110 Case (comes with power supply) Ultra Wizard Black ATX Mid-Tower Case with Front USB and Firewire Ports and Ultra 500-Watt Power Supply ~$50 This comes to a total of ~$650. The money will come from many many many many hours of lawn work, so any increase in price is BIG deal. Thank you in advance for your advice, I would be completely lost without it!
