My System Specs

Default Budget Build Suggestions

I will be buying the PC this week.
I will be using it for graphic & web design, surfing the net, movies, and some gaming at a later date. I will bet getting a video card at a later date so I do not need to include that in the budget. I will be mainly be playing Splinter Cell Conviction

I also do not need a monitor, case, keyboard, mouise or speakers.

My budget is $400-$450 after taxes. I am in Ontario and prefer to use Direct Canada, NCIX, BestDirect so I don't have to pay PST.

Prefernces:
CPU: AMD
Motherboard: Gigabyte, Biostar
Memory: G.Skill, Patriot

When I do get a video card it will probably be the XFX Radeon 5770

Thanks for your suggestions.

alright, one little issue (from a matter of preference) I prefer ATX mobos over MATX motherboards but Can't find a ATX mobo with a integrated video card too, also what power supply do you have at the moment?

NCIX.com - Buy Antec NSK4482 ATX Mini Tower Case Silver Black 3X5.25 2X3.5EXT 3X3.5INT 380W PSU Front USB Audio - NSK4482 In Canada.

I think this is within your budget. It's a fairly basic computer. If you want you should even be able to put a video card in it.

(I know the PSU is only 380W but it should be able to handle video cards for upto 400W)

Keep in mind there's not much overhead in terms of future upgrade.

The budget is quite tight to do a system where it's flexible enough to do future upgrade.
