I'm looking to build a general usage/gaming computer that will last me for at least a few years. I would like it to be capable of handling most anything I throw at it, even if it can't do it with all the settings on their highest. Most of these parts were chosen because they seemed, to me at least, to provide a good value and wouldn't be obsolete immediately.
I've never overclocked before but I think I would like to with this system. It seems easy enough. It wouldn't be hardcore, just anything that I can easily find a guide for, which seems to be most of it.
I haven't picked out a motherboard yet since I just haven't seen one that really stuck out as a great choice to me.
I don't know much about the case or the PSU, but from quick searches, I couldn't find many problems with them and they both seem to be pretty good deals.
This just leaves the mobo and I guess a network card (the one from my old computer is really quite awful). I think I want the mobo to be sli-capable, so if I need to in a year or so, just pop in another 8800gt, which will hopefully be even cheaper by then. Other than that, I don't know much about them. I'd also like to keep it around $100 or so, if possible as I'll be approaching the topend of my budget.
Also, is there anything I've gravely overlooking? I know I'll need some thermal paste and a few cords, but I feel like I might be missing something.
Thank you very much! I will really appreciate any help you can give me.
