  3. Shortstuffs build is right on the money for bang for buck. All the components are quality , and all you'd need to do is add a keyboard/mouse combo + speakers and you have a great system .

    I would sub in the following , but this is just personal choice

    Acer X233Hbid Black 23" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD $180
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009163

    and swap the 4870 gfx card for

    MSI R4890-T2D1G OC Radeon HD 4890 1GB $180 [ after rebate]
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127427

    The price remains the same , but you give up a little bit of screen size for a better faster gfx card .
  4. And now Im even more impressed by Huner315's build !

    hes found some amazing combos

    and you could swap out his monitor for the Acer I suggested and be well inside budget

    The correct link to his HDD/Windows combo is
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.235895.22-152-102
  5. thanks hunter for that those are some great combos and that's a great monitor outlander!
  6. Thanks for that correction outlander, i had forgotten the OS the first time through and forgot the change the link when i edited the price in.

    You are very welcome, you will be quite happy with your new build.
