  1. anyone help me out?
  2. Well how can we find parts for you without a website? :) also, youd be a little over budget cause you still need anOS and monitor.

    Edit: since you live in the US ill find you stuff on newegg :)
  3. you dont have to add a monitor, but an OS would be cool to, thanks again for helping out.
  4. Best answer
    Intel Core i3 Processor i3-2120 $116.99
    MSI H61M-P23 (B3) $47.99
    not a big fan of h61 boards.
    CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) $48.99
    Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB $69.99
    CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 V2 $44.99
    that power supply will be sufficient with what the build is.
    GAMMA Classic Series ATX Mid Tower $35.99
    SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB $134.99
    $119.99 after mail-in rebate card
    that will give you enough graphics power to play Arma II and similar games.

    $499.93 before rebates $484.93 after

    though i really would recommend getting this motherboard instead of an H61:
    MSI H67A-G43 (B3) $79.99
    $59.99 after mail-in rebate card
    $531.93 before rebates $496.93 after

  12. I do have a quick question, what resolution would this be able to handle, and also can I use my TV instead of getting a monitor with this computer?
  13. the 7770 can game @ 1920X1080 in most cases. and it also comes with a few adapters though you might just use the HDMI out or the DVI/D-Sub adapter to plug into the TV's D-sub (vga).

    Alright another question sorry I'm new to this, is the Cd drive included somewhere here? So I can insert the windows CD or do I have to buy a external drive separately.
