Basically I am trying to build a pc for 1200 dollars... it has to include everything... by everything i mean every definition of the word...
It has to include everything from the internal components to the OS, Monitor, Keyboard and Mouse... I am starting at complete ground zero and trying to build a budget that can game moderately (mid to high details at 30+fps 45 preferred AA/AF/HDR not necessary)well at a 1680x1050 widescreen resolution along with storing and editing photos among other things.
This is what I am looking at so far and I really need to cut down some costs
Sorry but I have to leave urgently so I am just going to post a google docs link if you wouldn't mind
like marl says, you can find a cheaper case. i see a sli motherbord but only 1 gfx.i have the same gfx and i tell u i love it. i have it running at 667/1050 and no problems. back to the motherbord..save your self 30$ and get gigabyte ds3 rev 1.3. the cpu..why not wait till july 22nd and get the quad 6600 for around 300$$. the hd...for that price you can get 2 250g and do raid 0, and the soundcard... you really dont need it unless you have some expensive speaker system. you really dont need a wireless unless you plan on stealing internet ^_^
