I'm looking to get a new gaming desktop and am wondering what's the best bang for my buck. I'm looking to spend around $800 give or take $20 or $30. That limit is before shipping. Also if it comes with a decent monitor I'm willing to spend a max of roughly $1000.

I also have a brand new corsair 750w PSU that can replace a build that includes an inadequate PSU. I also have an antec 300 case with fans.

My game of choice will be WoW but I play many other games too.

Check out my $850 build here:

Since you'll save $80 as you already have the PSU, that'll be $796.

I also already have an antec 300 case and would be willing to build my own I just never have.

Oh OK, well Brier check out the $850 build I posted above. Easily a cheap but strong build.

A software question for a new (home) build. How much do you guys pay for the operating system. For example, is it about $170-200 for Windows 7?

Thanks. It looks like the Home Premium 64-bit for $119 is what I need.


Yes I think that is the right choice for your price range.
