Hey Guys, I'm starting out with a brand new home-built computer that I' probably going to use for gaming, video editing, etc. I've got these parts that I'm about to order, but want to make sure that the geniuses at Tom's forums can certify it as a good idea (I am a beginner at this after all). Here are the parts:
Not a smart build.... An LGA 775 is an EOL chipset. You should keep just the PSU, HSF and Case from that build. I would replace it with the following
CPU - Athlon II X4 620 MOBO - ASUS 785G Micro ATX board HHD - Samsung Spinpoint F3 500 GB GPU - ATI 4850 RAM - G.SKILL RIPJAW DDR3 1333 Cas7 RAM DVD - Cheapest DVD 22x+ Burner you can find.
You seem alot more "techy" than me at this so these parts should be a lot better. Are these the parts you suggested? Also shouldn't the CPU price be a lot higher because it's a quad core vs. a duel core?
The rest of the parts you guessed correctly! The X4 620 is a budget quad-core at a great price, which is why I recommended it. It is not as powerful as the Intel quads or Phenom II X4's but is the BEST $ valued quad-core. AMD's are ideal for budget minded buiders, as they typically provide the best bang for the buck.

Alright I'm set! Thanks man you've been a great help! And AMD's do seem like the best one's for a budget. I hope you continue helping computer noobs like me so we don't do something drastic!
Can you post links to The combo components you used? The old links are dead. Thanks!
I can't find it any ore since the deal is no longer avaliable, but it was an asus mobo with an intel core duo processor combo if that helps in anyway, sorriez!
