Estimate purchase day: ASAP(this week). I do play games sometimes, but usually I watch HD TV shows such as, 720P, hopefully 1080P, I will buy a 22'' or 23'' monitor from somewhere else. I already have Windows7 untimate 64 lisence key, so I dont need a operation system. I have some experience to build a desktop. I also need it to have WiFi and a CD driver can burner DVDs. I do not know how to do the over clocking thing so I won't do it. The hard drive has to be at least 500gb, the memory has to be at least 4gb.
I saw a deal on eaby that came up with i7 870 Quad core. but I dont think it will fit in the amount of money or my need. Hopefully, I could use i5 quad core or a Phenom II quad core.
Also, can anyone give me some tips on choosing the monitor for the built.
Please put emphasis on graphic card and processor. I wish I could use this desktop to play games in the next few years without lag or maybe a little.
please choose www.tigerdirect.com for reference because them dont charge sale tax in California. If you choose http://www.newegg.com/, please includes tax.
The combo will be the best because I dont have to spend time to search the deal.Please tell me anything I should notice in the stallation.
thanks a lot, I went to Frys today, they did the calculation for me and suggest me to buy it from newegg. Is the motherboard firecorss ready? Also I will need a Wireless N PCI card. I checked the internet. There are two kinds, one is with two antennas, another one is a mini verion N card. Which one should I go? Also could you help me choose a decent speaker? Both are not include in the budget. By the way, do I need a sound card for this?
I think I can deal with speaker later on.
Now I am trying to decided a monitor,
Is this one good, it comes with 3 year warranty, 23'' screen and with built in speakers. I know built in speakers suck. Do you have better suggestion on monitor? I am looking for 22'' to 23'' thanks.
By the way someone posted this:
Thanks guys, I did the calculation by myself, including the wireless card, sub-total is $622, ship to my area CA91755, the tax is really pain in my a** ($61). Could some one translate the list into tigerdirect.com ? Because they dont charge tax in CA.
Item +shipping=153. Factory sealed, brand new, 3 year warranty and 2ms Response Time. I wont get this kind of deal on newegg. Best thing is no tax. God, I hate tax. I bet most of you dont live in those taxed states.
Ok, if everthing is alright, I am going to place the order.
