This is my first build, i did a lot of research on each part and how to choose them , but i need some advice and opinion.
I'm building it to play games of course, and i want it to last *forever*, I probably won't plan on making a second build but i will upgrade when the parts are cheaper. Hopefully i can buy it this year, otherwise it'll be early 2010.
So right now approximate cost is going to be nearly $800 (excluding mouse and monitor, already chosen and I already have some speakers and a keyboard).
Hmm... I didn't study up on AMD when i was making my build... but the GPU is certainly better and the build is cheaper... I just might have to go with yours. But do you think i could change the case for the one i have?
Try this one on for size - prices and links are to Egg USA also as I was off working on it before you listed CA preference. Oh how I wish people would follow the model for listing data and then we would not have this problem.
