This is my first time on this forum and it seems that you guys like checking out new builds and offering lots of good advise. I'm building my first PC since 2004. I want a PC to play great games and be able to connect to my network of other devices for sharing and watching video. (Xbox360, PS3, 40" Bravia 1080p LCD, etc.) I will read and appreciate all opinions. I also want to try a little over clocking. I've never done it and it sounds fun.
Like most people, I am on a budget but I don't like putting a number to it. So here is a list of what I'm looking at. Thanks for the help in advance.
Grand Total: $589. I would like to score the Video Card a little cheaper and get NWN2 with it. I'm also getting Windows Vista for free from school. I have my monitor and everything else, unless I forgot something. Let me know what you think. Thanks again.
There are plenty of other good PSUs out there but we were trying to get the price under $700 to include everything you would need in the tower and an operating system.
Edit: Trying to convince a friend to buy that build. I told them I'd assemble it. Only thing is I want it for a week to OC it and have fun with it first. Then I'd give it to them with a solid 24/7 Overclock and not charge labor.
