Hello,
I want to build a new system with a budget of approximately $750 not counting the Window 7 home premium.
I mostly use the system for things like photos ,dvd video's & surfing right now.
I do however plan to start gaming so I want to make sure I'm equipped for that as well.
I already have a Dell 22 inch LCD flat panel monitor.

Can I build a decent system on this kind of a budget ??
Any Component ideas ?

Thanks for the Help !!

Might want to put it in the format from the guidelines located in the thread in my signature...

CPU/Mobo: Phenom II X4 955 and Asus M4A79XTD EVO Combo for $256 after rebate
RAM: Corsair XMS3 2x2 GB DDR3 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $110
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 500 GB $55
Optical: Cheapest SATA DVD burner $24
Case: Antec 300 $52 w/ promo code
PSU: OCZ Z-Series OCZZ650 650W $90 after rebate
GPU: HD 5770 $155 after rebate

Total: $742. That's assuming you don't need a monitor or anything else outside the tower.
