Hi guys!

So I am looking to do a new build for my hd66 3d projector. I am currently using an older HP with athlon 64 3200 and a 5670 but its crapping out on me and decided it was time to do a new build. I haven't really kept up on newer CPU, and GFX cards so I am kinda lost on where to start.

If I could get a decent build -gfx card for 400-500 that would be great. I mean anything is a improvement over my amd 64 3200 at this point. So if anybody has idea's on a good build for me I appreciate it.

I don't care about bling bling cases or running all games at max resolution. The only gaming will be mostly 3d at 720p. So maybe some gfx card ideas separately...Thanks

A GTX 460 NVIDIA is a good card for the money and the CPU to aim for is the i5 (even Lynnfield will be fine) with 4 GB RAM.

what about mobo? Any ideas or at least some manufacturers I should stick with for reliability?

Thanks for the reply
