Hallo.. I'm in need of a new gaming computer and i dont really know much about what parts to choose etc. i've been trying to read as much as i can but i still think it's kinda hard to make the best build. The price can top around 1900-2300 so there should be plenty of possibilities, which only have made even harder for me to find the stuff i want.


I've tried to make a few builds my self but everytime i seem to mix stuff together which doesn't work that well together at all, so i would like to start with some of your opinions.

Pretty much i just wanna max everything out in this computer as long as the price stays around the 2000, and the finish should be a very good gaming computer with nice capacity etc..


If any of you guys could help me with this i'd be more the happy.

THanks alot

This may not be a good answer, but you asked for opinions. We're getting so close to the release of the Nehalem processor and the X58 motherboards and you have a large enough budget to include these new hardware upgrades. If i were you i'd hold off on the build for a bit longer to see about taking advantage of the new hardware.

well i would definitely not recommend buying new hardware right when it comes out...thats when you pay the most for it...even though I don't regret paying 4 bills for my x1800xt when it came out, I realized soon after that I should have boughten something thats not brand spanking new and top of the line...well thats just my opinion...

Here's something to consider... I'm assuming you'll be gaming on a high resolution monitor.

CPU:

An E8500, overclocks well and is great for gaming

GPU:

4870X2 is the most powerful thing you can grab right now

Motherboard:

ASUS P5E Deluxe x48 great crossfire motherboard, so it you wanted more gaming power later on you could stick another GPU in there

Memory:

Hard drive:

PSU:

This is a little overkill right now, but if you decide to put another 4870X2 in the system later on it'll be nice to have some headroom

CPU fan:
This is pretty cheap and works great

And get the bracket for that CPU fan:

All that is left to get is a nice case of your liking, SATA dvd-rom, and vista 64 bit.
Hope this helps
