Anyway been toying around with doing a new build in a few months and I figure I'll just do that now. So I have been out of tech scene for a few years so here is what I came up with from some quick reading. Case - Antec 900 PSU - OCZ 700w PSU Mobo - Abit AB9 QuadGT LGA 775 Intel CPU - Intel E8400 Video - MSI 512mb 9600GT Memory - Crucial 2x2gb DDR2 800 HD - Western Digital Caviar SE16 OS - Vista Home 64bit Other then that I'll pick up a pretty generic dvd drive and probably a new mouse/keyboard (maybe something optimized for gaming any suggestions? ) Also should I get a cpu cooler and if so what one? It's been a few years since I've been into the tech scene and that long since I built a pc so I am open to any suggestions. I priced everything to be about 1200 bucks which is about the range I'm looking to be in although I wouldn't mind spending a little more if it would make a real difference. BTW this is all being displayed on a Dell 24 inch widescreen monitor. I'm assuming GFX card should be good enough for todays gaming. Also the one area I am really unsure about is the motherboard. What's a decent board these days?
