Q8X00 or Q9X00 are faster and run cooler.

What brand and model? Quality is as important as size.

Yes. But mecer is not a brand I recognize.

It looks like the power supply is Fortron, which is ok, but I would recommend Antec Earthwatts, Corsair or Seasonic. 500W is plenty.

The motherboard is probably ASUS P5E Deluxe, which is good for Crossfire. I would recommend P5Q Pro instead.

Good case brands to look at are Antec, Cooler Master, and Thermaltake.

I don't think there are any 19" monitors with a 1024x768 resolution, 1280x1024 is the usual native resolution (LCDs should always be run at the native resolution if possible). Crossfire is completely unnecessary for this size monitor, even a single HD4870 is overkill. An HD4830 would be perfect.

Do you need any other components, such as DVD, hard drive?

Mecer looks like a company in SA that makes computers, but not a parts manufacturer.

We might recommend parts, but unless we know where you are shopping, we can't know what is available to you.

The problem is to get prices on the internet in South Africa is very reare! if you go to a pc shop 8 out of 10 and ask the man behind the desk to build you a HI End PC, they dont know what your talking about! They are only building Business pc's. They recomend that i buy a Xbox or PS3 but it isnt my type of gaming. My friends are also PC enthusiasts but more in the music, internet, and editing.
Pc technology is very high in this country but people is to afraid to use it. Big names like:
MSI
ATI
AMD
Nvidia
Gigabyte
Abit
HP
Western Digital
Acer
muskin
ASUS
intel
wolfdale
And a lot more!

If you can maybe show me some components on negwegg.com, then i will surely find it in south africa, johannesburg.

OK :)  That's what I needed to know.

Here is a popular build at a reasonable price in the USA. Your prices will be more though. If you are rich, perhaps you can afford an i7 and X58 motherboard. I'm going to give you the parts for a moderate, best-bang-for-your-money build in general.

CPU : Intel E8500
MB: Gigabyte UD3P (Or another P45 board, but this is the best one.)
RAM: 4GB DDR2 800Mhz 1.8V 5-5-5-15 (or lower timings) G.Skill, Mushkin, Corsair
Case: Antec 300, 900. Cooler Master 690.
Video card: 4870 512MB, or 4870 1GB. (you may add a second in the future if needed.)
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black.
Power supply: Corsair 750TX
Any DVD burner, as long as it's SATA
CPU cooler: This one is harder.... OCZ Vendetta 2 may be available to you.

If you look at my signature you will see a lot of information. The second link is a big list of parts you can use to help you find parts in SA. Good luck!

THANK YOU FOR THE ADVICE AND HELP!!! I WILL CHECK THE PRICESES AND TELL YOU LATER HOW MUTCH IT COST IN S.A. JUST FOR INTREST SAKE. :bounce:

$1 = R9.71

G.skill 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM... R900

Intel Core2 Duo E8500 3.16ghz 45nm Lga775 1333mhz... R2300

GA-EP45-UD3P GIGABYTE "S Series" P45 & ICH10R Chipset Socket LGA 775 @ FSB 1600…. R2100

Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case R600

Asus Radeon HD4870 - 512MB... R3300

Corsair TX750W 750W Modular Cable Management PSU... R1100

Cooler Master COOLERMASTER SPHERE COMPLETE COOLING R500

Note: the Intel core2 duo E8500 and the Intel core2 Quad Q6600 is the same in price!
I know the speed differs but isn’t it better to buy the quad for the future? How much difference is there in the two if you consider doing gaming on the computer? I think the quad needs more cooling than the duo.

Some of these prices are over priced I probably bet I will find the same brand and model for a better price I

My monitor is a 19’’ 1280x1026. Witch card(s) will you prevue?

The Core 2 Duo will be better in most games for the next few years, as long as you are not doing a lot of other things at the same time.

The 4870 will give you very good performance at that resolution. You'll play everything at maximum settings.
