My System Specs

Default one week deadline on this project,

If you had 500-1000$ to put something together, and i mean i'll be using some components in my old computer for the one, i'd prefer to stick to 500 but as stated above i can afford a little more. (I realize i posted something similar a few weeks ago but circumstances have changed slightly).

This rig will be used to play latest game and intense multi tasking.

I will definitely have

EVGA 260 GTX SSC 55nm Core 216

74GB Western Digital Raptor (Boot)
1TB Western Digital Caviar Black (storage)

Corsair TX750 power supply(would this work with a new mobo meant for ddr3+ i5) ?

ASUS Xonar D2

most everything else is busted. I could really use help and if it's not too much to ask can u put it together on only one website. I was thinking maybe buying a barebone kit and buying the other seperate components.

Honestly you guys are awesome and keep up the great work, you make all of us Canadians proud!

So all you need is a case, CPU, mobo, ram , HSF.

That shouldn't be hard to work with at all.
i5 750 - Roughtly $215
Gskill Ripjaws - $115
Asus P755D or Gigabyte UD4 board - Roughly $175
NZXT Gamma/Beta - $50
CM 212+ - $30


$585.

I like the Gamma more coz you have more fan slots and a bottom mounted PSU
