Hello, been looking for a computer for school. Mainly for programs like CS5 and such, but would also like to play a cpl MMO's on it. Was looking at for parts and I think I have all the parts I need/want. Just wondering if all the parts will work well together/be easily assembled. Do not need a monitor, can hook this up to my HDTV via an HDMI cable, I think. nor do I need a keyboard/mouse, as I have those from my old desktop.

Here's the link to the wishlist with them all in it.

You need to make your wishlist public for us to view it. Its generally easier just to post the links to your components.

On newegg I selected this wishlist and chose the make public option, and on it, it has a check by shared so I do not know why it will not let you see them. If it is easier maybe I can just type out the parts I have from it into a post.

Here they are:

Disc Drives:
Also going to add an addition dvd burner drive from my old desktop it's a sony 24X I believe.
OS: Windows 7 64-Bit

Now keep in mind mainly going to use for schooling. Graphic Design major, but would like it to run few new mmo's coming out soon as well.

Is this it?

Its a separate link to the public version of it, but the number usually stays the same so it is possible to find it.

If that is indeed your wishlist there are a few things that you should change. You should use triple channel ram with an i7 930, using 4 sticks will end up with it either running in dual or single channel mode which you dont really want. I suggest just getting a standard 6GB kit of ram, that should be sufficient, and if it isnt you can just add a second one in.

The samsung F3 is cheaper and faster than that caviar black, there is also the version of the caviar black with 500GB platters like the F3 but it is more

Yeah thats what I've been hearing is using 6GB will be better. TY for the info. also, what would be a good wireless add-on/internal network card? would love for it to be wireless so i don't have to run cables all over my house. Can live w/o it though, cuz am trying to keep this build under 1400 dollars.
