HDD from the Gateway 838gm, I think it is a 200 Gb SATA HD 7200 PRM with 8mb cache.
(If it is not to outdated, will eventually upgrade it if I do use it.)
CD/DVD drive: The gateway 838gm’s drives hopefully?
Total price: about $490ish
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe?
Monitor Resolution: (idk, I will be using a 42” TV)
Additional Comments: (I Would like to keep the price down low as possible as I am only 17 with no job, so if there are things I can change to lower the price, please tell me. This will be my first computer build/ with no prior experience. I would also like to know if I could use parts from my old gateway 838gm to save money. Also please let me know if I forgot something and if some of the parts that I picked out are incompatible. )
And also, will I need to buy any extra cables for this build?
Total, no OS: $485 + S&H (not counting MIR, or combo/specials)
*EDIT* most of these have free shipping, and the Hyper 212 will allow a good OC of the proc (I have that X3 in my spare, and it has no issues with Oblivion, Fallout, or Fallen Earth, using an old 9800GX2 KO)
