Hmmm

Well, I am making a home use gaming computer right now. After looking around I found I could make a decent one for $700, here are basic specs. Everything had 5 stars on newegg.com, so hopefully it is good. Any comments on anything I should spend extra on to improve? Keep in mind this is meant for gaming, hopefully enough to play Crysis.


*2.6 GHz Quad-Core AMD Processor, 64 bit
*Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT video, 512 MB
*4 GB of DDR2 RAM(Motherboard supports up to 16 GB, Max 8GB on Windows OS)
*250 GB Storage(SATA 3.0 GB/s, 7200 RPM)

scruw the 9600, get the 8800 gt, then OC it. its about the same price and better.

it play crysis on full setting about 20-30ish frames, on decent resolution. i dunno y u wana play that tho, grafix rock but gameplay is boring...

FFMaster is on a distinguished road
seeing as your building from scratch the first question asked should be are you going intel/amd for your cpu and for video ati/nvidia they both have their upsides and downsides (mind you AMD is a bit lacking for the cpu department) currently due to the state of the new ati radeons, going with 1x 4870x2 would probably be your best bet, grab an intel q6600 and overclock it to like.. 3.6 or so, (make sure you get a damn good cooler) that should give you great gaming performance, run a raid setup (SSD or not you'll get damn good performance) make sure the board you chose supports multiple gpu's.

so a rundown of my recomendations
CPU - Intel Q6600 (LGA775)
GPU - ATI Radeon 4870x2
Mobo - any LGA775 mobo preferably xfire or sli capable
HDD - 2xwestern digital something lmao... doesnt matter what aslong as its sata and has a 16/32mb buffer on it (pull a medi if you wish and get SSD's)

other then that the only thing you cant forget is a good PSU any case can be made to have good ventilation but a good psu is extremely important or your parts wont work personally i use a 950watt silverstone strider (modular RULES!)
