  1. ^ Hi...For the general public to see the wishlist, you have to save the wishlist as Public wish list or you can list the parts here...
  2. Should be done now, sorry about that.
  3. This gigabyte Mobo is just a good with same specs for $100 less.

    I'd also recommend getting a new Monitor that's 1080p.

    This $189 Asus is a good choice

  4. Oh for gaming, wireless is a bad idea. If you want a gaming keyboard and mouse look into saitek eclipse and mx518.
  5. Seems the 5870 is out of stock at newegg, if by chance its not back in by the time i do this, is there a back up card you guys would recommend?
  6. scratch that, The HIS model is out of stock. Would you guys recommend ASUS or XFX of the same card?
  7. The XFXs are known for their reliability and great warranties. I would go for that one.
