Hello everyone.Well i thought its time to upgrade from my old 5 year old pc (8400GS FTW!!).But i live in Lithuania and prices here are really high.About 25% bigger than in US including VAT.So im spending about 800$ and I am on a very strict budget,really cant go over 800 unless its necessary.

Approximate Purchase Date: about 2 weeks

Budget Range: 800$~

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming,web surfing etc.

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: The tower itself

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg ( or if anyone understands the language)
