    Since I made some changes to my old build I decided to make a new thread. Parts not needed keyboard, mouse, OS.

    Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133180

    Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131672

    Graphics Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814162058

    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231179

    Monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824254023

    CD/DVD Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135204

    Hard Drive: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2795126&SRCCODE=GOOGLEBASE&cm_mmc_o=VRqCjC7BBTkwCjCECjCE

    Before Rebates: $656 After: $579

    I really can't go any higher than this after I get the rebates I'll probably upgrade my current keyboard, mouse, and buy a cheap game or 2. Any ideas to change some parts are greatly appreciated.


    The NVidia GTX 460 should be able to run off a lower capacity power supply. Take a look at the Corsair CX series 500W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139018

    The GTX 460 at that price point is pretty hard to beat ... but the AMD Radeons generally work a bit better with the AMD processors as they offload more of the processing to the GPU. Take a look at the 6790 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127587 the 1GB capacity should also help out a bit in new games

    Good luck with your building!!!

  3. Can anyone recommend a mouse and mouse pad for $70.
  4. how do you hold your mouse? does the center of your palm rest on the mouse when you grip it? does your ring finger grip the side of the mouse or does it rest on it?

    I keep my thumb on the side pointer finger on the L mouse, middle finger on the wheel ring finger on the right mouse and my pinkey is on the side of the mouse.
  6. After some changes to the build I've cut the price down. I've changed the case to a cooler master elite 339 nvidia edition, and switched to a hard drive and monitor from tigerdirect.

    Would a non-modular psu be a good idea with this case though.
