Okay heres what I have got The system is going to be used for moderate gaming usage as well as everyday use and will be on all the time. I will NOT be overclocking anything at all CASE Antec Sonata III case with included 500w PS ( will this be fine to run the graphics card?) http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=013961&cid=CS.664 Video Card BFG GeForce 8600GTS OC 320mb OR XFX GeForce 8800GTS nVidia 8800GTS 320mb They seem the same both have lifetime warrenty http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=014486&cid=999.243.390 CPU AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=013513&cid=CPU.907 Motherboard Asus M2N-E Socket AM2 nForce 570 Ultra MCP Chipset http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=010459&cid=MB.526 Hard drive 320gig seagate drive 2gig ddr2 667mhz ram (either patriot, kingston, or Transend) Whichever is in stock Okay so does everything seem fine with that? I know everyone is saying go core 2 but usually its because of overclocking which i am NOT doing at all. However i may consider the Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 if you guys think it is much better then the 6000+ in its standard unoverclocked condition. The other big IF in that factor would be if i could find a motherboard which i can fit the 8800 on in the same pricerange as i was getting the AMD board for which seemed to be the biggest problem because the intel board seem to be much more expensive. Anyways im open to ALL suggestions so feel free to let me know. Im looking to put this together fairly soon though.
