I'M PLANNING TO BUILD A BUDGET ($500) GAMING RIG.
TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK, I TRIED TO KEEP THE TOTAL AS CLOSE TO $500 AS POSSIBLE SO THAT I CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF 6 MONTH NO PAY, NO INTEREST DEAL. MY LIST OF PARTS FOR ARE AS FOLLOWS:
Personally, I always use Enlight boxes. The power supply is too small regardless of brand. Lite On products are junk IMHO. I've had very good service from my Samsung SATA burners. Finally, I've had very bad service from any Radeon type video boards. I always use Nvidia. Oh, almost forgot, very risky using off brand HDD. I have used WD from the first one 15 years ago.
As for the case, I appreciate the cheaper ones too, but I would suggest this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... for $25 +$10 shipping, for much better cooling. It comes with a 120mm fan in the rear, and will take another one up front; replace the three 80mm ones you chose with a single additional 120mm for the front.
For video card, if you want to save money, there is a 9600gso on newegg which is an ASUS and is overclocked, should be decent, I think it's only 104-105 and 20 dollar mail in rebate. Or look at the 8800 gs superclocked which is almost the same as the 9600 gso but faster. Those can be had for 105 or so with rebate. That would give you more money for the better PSU. Or grab a 9600gt.
I have a different recomendation for the case, another rosewill. Has superior cooling, can fit 3 120mm, 1 80mm, and 1 side HD fan of a 80 x 15mm or 92 x 15mm type. Though I must note the front and side fans by the HD cage are partly obstructed, and the HD cage toolless design is a bit lacking and feels wobbly but will hold them in place (yeah I own it and im picky).
Besides what I listed its a great case, and they are always changing the price from what its currently listed to $35 every other week it seems like (I was watching this case for about 2 months before buying it a month ago and noticed the price kept changing constantly so just wait a couple days and it go back down)
Another case to look into, yet another rosewill. They also like changing the price of this one quite often. The main differences I see between the 2 cases is this one is lacking a side HD fan and rear vents, and appears to have a better tool less design, one that may be worth using.
