    I am looking to build a decent computer........again

    I own this already.

    OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel kit desktop (sorry, didn't know how much to add.) I paid $28 after MIR. :wiggle:

    I am looking for a case that does not look like it came off of a transformer. Although, I do like large towers.

    I will use it for photoshop and games like Guild Wars and watching movies (i.e. porn):naughty:

    I have not done this in a while and need some advice from some pros. I own a couple of Raptor hard drives sitting in my garage from my last build, if you can find something better, great. I would love the option of upgrading too. Not looking for top notch, but would like it to be decent. I guess what I am trying to say is......not more then $800:bigthumb:

    And honestly their builds are usually aimed at big time gamers, usually you dont need the high end video or sound cards they choose unless you know you actually need it

    so you can save some more dough by skimping on them. I would go for video in the $150 range and just go with the built in audio

    I built this for my girlfriend for $500, plays Crysis and all other games I have tried at absolute maximum settings and resolution.

    In fact I liked it so much I stole the video card and processor and gave her my older ones, she wouldn't have even known the difference (shhh...)
