Hey everybody! I've been crawling around here deciding to build my first computer...I've worked on computers but never started from ground zero so I want to get everyone's opinions and to make sure the items are compatible...(I think they all are)
I'm not out to build an Extreme gaming machine, more along the lines of CHEAP! but still able to run COD4 and the likes at medium settings. Probably the most demanding game will be Flight Simulator X...Also some Photoshop and SolidWorks/ProE
I will be running Windows XP Pro, at least for the time being. Vista in the future...
I would get a different mobo from either Asus or Gigabyte. Change the ram as well, get either Kingston, Consair, OCZ, G.Skill. Would get a better psu. Case should be fine, or you can get a p182, or antec sonata 3 (if you get the sonata 3, don't need to worry about getting a psu as it comes with one).
