    well i have recently decided i want to build a computer

    Here are some of the parts i found for building my own PC, i still need a CD/DVD Drive and the RAM which for right now i am not too sure which ones to get. If you want, you can take a look at some of these parts and maybe recommend better ones or maybe give me an idea of what else i can buy

    MOBO
    CPU
    Case
    HD
    Video Card
    Power Supply
    Monitor
    My choice of optional sound card

    EDIT: oh and also, if you maybe prefer IMing over this stuff instead of posting, feel free to add me

    the 750 watt psu is overkill for what the system has.
    400 watt should be plenty (unless you plan on upgrading anything later)
    heres a better processor for the same price (and a more reliable reseller)
    Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Brisbane 2.6GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core Black Edition Processor - CPUs / Processors
    use coupon code CPU628 to make it the same price

    the HDD is nice for the price

    the case is far too much. There was recently a deal with this exact case and 400watt psu for $69 shipped on fatwallet

    thats about all i can comment on

    thanks man, a friend of mine talked to me about getting a motherboard (think it was like SVI SLI something like that) where you can have like a dual graphics card something, i cant remember exactly what he said, but yeah anyone know how that works?

    and drew, how long will i have to use that code? because i dont have the money to order all these parts at once, but if i have a limited time to use that code, i may have to buy it soon and store it in a safe place till i get all the parts

    SLI (and the ATI equivalent CrossFire) basically split the work of rendering video over the two (or four if you buy a specially built computer) video cards, allow the each of the cards to either do half the work at twice the speed, or work at near full speed and produce an even better picture. Of course, with an 8500, it's kind of overkill unless you're running Crysis.
    For the Noobs:
    Want Custom Firmware? You'll probably need a Magic Memory Stick and Pandora's Battery. Please use this guide here.
    Don't want to make one? Don't get cheated on Ebay, go here, a site run by a member of this very forum.
    And please, use the Guides and Search buttons. More than likely, your question has already been answered.

    Well, it's good to have a board that supports SLI, but you don't really need two cards unless you're going to play games at maxed out settings on a large monitor or do heavy video editing and rendering.

    neweggs codes usually lasts a week, but you can always find great deals there if you keep your eyes open.

    I was gonna say get a Gigabyte mobo too. They seem to be really popular atm.

    Wouldnt you want a DVD drive instead of a CD drive?
