It all comes down to what you can afford or spend My friend.
If you can't afford the V9, don't buy it.
If you can, go for it.
Its a nice case.

Stay within your Budget.

But the V9 not the Black Edition.

Thermaltakeusa»Chassis»Mid Tower»V9 Series»V9 : V9 VJ40001W2Z

# Corsair / 4 GB (2x2) XMS2 800Mhz DDR2 CL5 6400 (69 $)
# Thermaltake / V9 Colour Black (124 $)
# Corsair / 650W PSU (149 $)

For HD, if they have Western Digital 320 or 640GB models that would be good.
An affordable GPU Depending on what you're gaming with, 4770 aren't too bad.
Then grab a cheap Optical Drive from LG or Samsung and you should be good.

My thoughts at least.

I don't know whats available to you ,

I think 4850 will be good. Optical Driver LG or Samsung, yes it will be good. For HDD Western Digital or Seagate which one?

And one important think, LCD.
Samsung and LG is available in there.

Sure, 4850 should do you just fine (even though I don't know what you are playing or doing with it lol) if thats what you can afford.

Western Digital (either the Green (slowest but quietest) , Blue (balance) , or Black (performance version) ) .

LCD, I own an LG Tv, and a Sammy Screen. Both are good, whichever one is cheaper for you.

ST

Hi again,

Why did you said '' Sure, 4850 should do you just fine (even though I don't know what you are playing or doing with it lol) if thats what you can afford. '' about 4850. (I don'T understand :S)

And;

3,5" 500GB 32MB SATA2 7200 Rpm Caviar Black (80 $) but 500GB 16MB SATA2 Barracuda 7200.12 (69 $) ?? For extra budget why don't I go with Seagate??

And what is the differences between this HDDs?

LG 22" W2242S-PF Wide Screen (179 $) and 22" W2234S-BN Wide Screen (189$). I will go with one of them.

For GPU, I'm waiting...

What I ment with the first part, was which Games you played, and on what settings (low quality, medium quality, high quality). I know the 4770 is very good budget card. But if all you can afford is the 4850, then it is still a decent Card.

For the HD, Seagates have had problems in the past, not all of them but quite a few.
If you want go for it though to save money, sure.

For the Screen, get the LG and you should be good to go!!!
Hope this has helped,

Regards,
ST

You are very good Soultribunal thanks for helping me.

Firstly games; I want to play them not in low qualitly! Medium or High it doesn't make differences for me. 4770 has a good budget but what about performance, 4850 get a good performance and for 4870 it has the most performance but the money make me shut. And I want to now about brands. Sapphire,HIS and Asus.

Secondly screen; I will go with LG surely. But I can't find any review to believe. PF and BN series what is the differences I don't know but I will search them.

Thirdly HDD; I'm quite stucked in there. I can't find 500 GB Caviar Black Review but I found 1 GB Caviar Black Reviews. They all said Caviar Black is too loud?? Can it distrub me while I playing games on surfing in internet? About Seagate Barracuda, they have a firmware problems I thought they couldn't fix it clearly because of most of users' Barracuda was burned. (What a performance!) I will go with Western Digital or turned to Samsung.

# Gigabyte / EP45-DS3L DDR2 1200Mhz (125 $)
# Corsair / 4 GB (2x2) XMS2 800Mhz DDR2 CL5 6400 (69 $)
# Thermaltake / V9 Colour Black (124 $)
# Corsair / 650W PSU (149 $)
# Intel / Core2 Duo E8400 3.0 Ghz 64 Bit 6 MB L2 Cache (214 $)
# LG / 22" W2242S-PF Wide Screen (179 $) or LG / 22" W2234S-BN Wide Screen (189$)
# Western Digital / 3,5" 500GB 32MB SATA2 7200 Rpm Caviar Black (80 $)

Total: 941$ - 951$

For GPU, I don't know again...

No Problem, the 4770 has very good performance (I believe it is very close to the 4870). For the Company, go with HIS (I have personally used them and they are great) , plus they have very good customer support.

For the WD Drive, yeah the Blacks can get loud, but not while your surfing, only when You are doing lots of stuff on the HD. Again, if you'd rather a slower quieter drive, go with the WD Green.

For the Monitors, I am not sure what all the differences with the types are. But , I would still suggest getting the LG one.

Best Regards,
ST

** There is no HIS HD4770 modeil contains.

SAPPHIRE:

Marketing Names, that is all they are.
ICQ4 for HIS is the name of their referance cooler (Made by Arctic Cooling).

As for the Sapphire ones, I believe that is the same.
If they don't have a 4770 listed, then go for the highest model of HIS Card you can afford with the ICEQ Cooler.

And for the LG's I think the W2242S is the one that would work best, at least from the links you gave me.

ST
