My System Specs

Question Is it a good one?

Hi everyone i will (shortly) build my first pc
It won't be a high end gaming rig but not a junk

Here are the parts:

Motherboard:
Gigabyte ga-p35-dq6

heatsink
Zalman cnps9700nt

Graphic card
Sapphire radeon hd 4850 1gb

Core
Intel core 2 quad

Heres the questions:
Could someone help me find the missing parts such as ram sticks, case, psu, etc.?
Could i have a global price?
Will it be a good rig?

Thanks alot to every helper!

That list is ALL last-gen parts, and in a few months you'll be yet another generation behind. You could do a lot better than that for less money.

What's your budget?

All right, a good starting point. I'd advise against getting a laptop, you'll probably pay too much and get too little, then not be able to upgrade it later.

Try this:

Motherboard
CPU (Make sure to OC it)
Cooler
RAM
HDD
GPU
PSU (you may need something beefier, IDK right now, though.)

Didn't know what kind of case you'd like, so I left that out, and you still need an optical drive (try the Lite-On iHAS424-98) but that should set you straight. Didn't have time to total it, though. (sorry.)

Any you like is all right, but make sure it is an ATX-sized case of some kind. (You'll see something along the lines of "ATX mid tower" in the product description-- that's what you're looking for.)

EDIT: You could get an ATX full tower too, but those are large and a little on the expensive side. Just be careful not to get an "ATX mini tower" or anything that sounds like that because those will only accept MicroATX or Mini ITX boards.
