  1. BTW there is $90 worth of MIR but I dont include those because you never know if you will actually get that money back.
  2. make sure u have a bathing suit case ur going to be surfing the web in no time
  3. Hmm, for an extra $10 or so you can get a 20" Acer widescreen which has 1680x1050 ability vs the 1440x900 of the Hans-G.

    I like the Cent 534 better than the 5, and it's the same price... I guess it's just personal preference.

    If you want to save a little money you could go with G.Skill DDR2 800 RAM 2x 1GB for $85, not sure how crucial it is for your brother to have the CAS 4 timings.

    Other than that not sure why the mouse has to cost so much but I guess everyone has things they like (= I prefer less expensive mice/keyboards (and with cords) that way I don't have to invest in batteries, and also can use money saved to get better overall parts (things that will affect performance like cpu/gpu).

    Other than that though the build looks good. I'd recommend a bigger PSU, but that's just because it would allow for upgrading in the future (without replacing PSU), not really a necessary change.

    Best of luck with the build/order.
  4. and get candy...cause then maybe ill come over and say hi
  5. hi, got any candy in there?
  6. mmmmm
  7. Thanks Pous.

    I will check into that monitor.

    I dont really care about that case either I let him pick it out and he really doesnt care that much.

    That RAM has a $40 MIR so it comes out to $70 as long as he sends off the rebate.

    That KB/Mouse is the same one I have and he loves it.

    He never upgrades he always holds on for 2-4 years then buys new.

    WTF? :pt1cable:
    I think you should seek professional help.
  9. plus you can get the x1950 xt which is better than the 7950gt for the same price
  10. I'd check out the G.Skill 2x1GB 800MHz RAM for $85, no MIR. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231098.

    I run those in an Asus motherboard with a 65W Athlon X2 4200+, as a HTPC.

    Do that, and then you can get a bigger HD. Either the Seagate 7200.10 400GB or one of the cheaper 500GBs. I always advise more HD space than you think you need. I have 1.1TB right now, with only 410GB free. Previous PC only had 240GB total. So, in the span of a couple months the amount of saved data I have grew from about 180GB to 690GB. New games are averaging, what, 7GB? Yea, what were they 2-4 years ago? I wouldn't be surprised to see some 15-20GB games coming out in 2 years, I won't guess on 4 years.
