this is my first built so I hope it works, I have done my research for quite some time and here is what I got
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: 1 month or less
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: gaming, watching movies and some design programs
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS,dvd drive
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS:www.newegg.com only for refrence so no need for helping me with combos cuz I wont be buying from itCOUNTRY OF ORIGIN: EGYPT
PARTS PREFERENCES: AMD/ATI and OCZ for PSU due to limited selection of PSUs in my country for some reason
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1440x900 now, later 1920x1080 when I finally upgrade my 19"
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:as I said before, for some reason every mall I looked in my country hates every good brand PSU and has only a few selection of OCZ brands, other than that every other parts is there even the new GTX 480
If you can find it on sale the Corsair HX 750 is worth every penny it can actually deliver over 900w and is 90% efficient.
Narrow your mobo search to an Asus or Gigabyte you won't be dissappointed with either brand.
+1 for niklas's CM 690II basic recommendation a personal favourite case for the price.
PC Power and Cooling is now part of OZC.
