The P4 3.2 machine that lives on my desk is showing it's age and I'm ready to build a new PC. I've always been a gamer, but due to peer pressure I strayed to the dark side (consoles) and I haven't been following pc upgrades for quite some time. I could use some advice from you guys. This is what I'm thinking of building.
Optical Drives Will be reusing these from previous build.
OS Windows 7 Home Premium OEM $104.99
Case I've got a NZXT Tempest that I will use.
I'm trying to stay in the $800 dollar range after rebates. Does anyone see any problems w/ this setup, anything I overlooked, or maybe improvements I should consider? Also I've always been a Intel fanboy; what do you guys think about the Phenom II X3 processor? I was originally thinking i5 but that raises the overall cost a bit. Thanks for the help.
