    Thanks for your reply, but what exactly needs work? Do some parts not work well together or is it just not a very good computer?
  3. Like for example: Why do you buy a H67 based mobo, if you don't plan to use it's onboard grabhics solution? Buy a P67 for the same price of ~100$ - like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128487 - it's much better, packed with many more extensions...
    Also - your i 2600 is an overkill for this system, go for a 2500 and find a better way to spend the rest of your money...
    Etc. ...

    Great thanks!! I'm planning on using heavier applications and programs in the future so i will probably keep the 2600. i know its overkill, the the other parts are cheaper to upgrade. (so eventually the caliber of the other parts will match the CPU) But the motherboard i will change. That's great! Any other suggestions? is it still compatible?
  5. What heavier applications do you mean? I have some experience with certain types of heavier apps., maybe can help. Like : your 1080p monitor is not good for CAD or 3D, neighter it's good for photo and video editing. I may have some notices about your RAM. Your mouse is for gaming... Can't actually check all your components like coolers, sorry.

    Is there a monitor that is $180 or less and good for:
    Gaming (sims3 and need for speed etc)
    Lots of video and photo editing
    Some 3d modeling (google sketchup)
    I plan doing some music production
    Lots of multitasking
    Thanks
  7. Thanks for the replies! Are you positive the parts are compatible? I really don't want to have to return some parts across the border because the shipping is very expensive.
