This will be my first attempt at a home built PC. I'm wanting to stay around $1500, mainly for gaming and some motion graphics and digital animation. I've been looking at hardware and components but i'm
not sure about compatibility or cooling issues. There might be better options for me but here is what i've got so far.
CPU - AMD x2 6000
MB - BIOSTAR TForce TF570SLI
PSU - SeaSonic S12 550W Power Supply
Memory - Kingston 2GB
Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar RE2 WD5000YS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s
stick with the 8800GTS, I think he may have gone the AMD route because it's cheaper, but I would still consider intel. Overall great work, but I would get the eVGA nForce 590 from newegg.com instead of that Biostar mobo. Flawless choice on the PSU!
