Making a rig, mainly going to be used for gaming with some schoolwork being done on it, looking at a $1400 budget. Seeing as how this is my first time, anything will be helpful.
My main specs at the moment are:
Case - Cooler Master HAF 932
PSU - Corsair HX620W
CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
Motherboard - Asus P5Q Pro
OS - Windows Vista Business 64-Bit (Ultimate's a bit out of my range.)
Ram - Mushkin EM PC2-6400 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-800
Video Card - XFX 8800 Ultra 768MB
HDD - Seagate Barracuda 250GB
CPU Fan - Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro LGA775 2500RPM 45CFM
Looking to have this built in about a month or two, any sort of input will be helpful.
That HDD there seems pretty good, the computer I have right now is a 500GB one and I don't even use close to 100 gigs in it. Once I get more money I'll look at upgrading some of the things, like getting Ultimate, Raid, SLI.
OCZ Vendetta II is out of stock...but what about the Vendetta I, not even a dollar away from my current one.
