long time forum reader just signed up. I want to make a PC with a $700 budget by April or so. Problem is, I know $700 is tough without a LCD and keyboard/mouse combos as well as CD/DVD drives, which will add up to around $200, minimum.
I plan to play WoW and DC Universe Online (when it's released) mostly with a little COD4/5 and Team Fortress 2. I don't need to see the sweat on a person, just decent graphics ala Xbox360/PS3 (don't know if you guys consider that high end or not). I'm not a graphics guy, I just need enough to play it at solid FPS.
What I'll need:
Extra coolers (if fit budget)
OCZ Platinum PC6400 800mhz 2x2gb
ATI Radeon 4830
Microsoft comfort curve 2000 keyboard and mouse
Western Digital Caviar SE 250GB
Sony Optiarc Black 16X DVD-ROM
