Hi ;-) Wanted a new gaming rig so i leave it upt to you the experts to help me with the specs - have a budget equvialent to $1400
Not including the i7 - 920 intel core i want. This must just include the desktop specs already have a 22 inch Samsung Syncmaster 2253GW Lcd and speakers, as well as keybard and mouse.
Need you to actually build the system for gaming - not going to overclock too.
I like FullMetall's build but I would change the case. You can save some money by going w/ the Antec 900 or the coolermaster 690. Both are great cases and the higher airflow of the full towers is not necessary if you don't plan on overclocking. Also, if you're really set on not overclocking (How could you not? ) then just go w/ the stock cooler. You might take the extra money and consider a 4850x2 -
It's an outstanding overclocker in its own right and is essentially the same as the deluxe for the OP's purposes. The deluxe is really only necessary if you're trying to push a high end OC. $$$ can be saved here. Fantastic board!
