Default Help me out with my build plz

1. What YOUR PC will be used for. That means what types of tasks you'll be performing.

work, surfing, games, video editing, photoshop

2. What YOUR budget is. A price range is acceptable as long as it's not more than a 20% spread


3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from


4. IF YOU have a brand preference. That means, are you an Intel-Fanboy, AMD-Fanboy, ATI-Fanboy, nVidia-Fanboy, Seagate-Fanboy, WD-Fanboy, etc, etc, etc, you get the picture.


5. If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts, and if so, what those parts are.

cd drive, dual 22" lcd's, mouse/keyboard

7. IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds.

probably overclock

8. WHEN do you plan to build it?

as soon as i get the parts

Thermaltake Wing RS 100 Piano Black ATX Mid Tower Case

Intel Core 2 Duo E8400

My System Specs


Did you know that that motherboard was an matx?

can you afford this one for 135?
Asus P5Q Pro Atx LGA775 P45 DDR2 2PCI-E16 Crossfire 3PCI-E1 2PCI SATA2 Sound Gblan Esata Motherboard - DirectCanada Pro&manufacture=ASUS

Also probably worth spending a little more on a PSU if you can-here's a decent on efor not much more:
OCZ GameXStream 600W ATX12V 24PIN SLI Ready Active PFC ATX Power Supply 120MM Fan Black - DirectCanada

The rest looks good- good price coming up on some antec cases at NCIX on monday- don't forget that you can price match at NCIX too if there's something you really want to get there that isn't available at DC.
