Ok, I've never built a comp myself before, but I don't want to pay $$$$$ for top-shelf stuff that I could assemble myself.

I've pieced together what I though I wanted, but I'm not sure if it'll all work together, and whether I could do better or not. Right now, I'm not looking so much at the price of the components, as much as how well they'll work. Also, am I missing anything? I have already have a new networking card, mouse, kbrd, monitor, and speakers.

Here's what I've picked out:

Asus Stryker

GeForce 8800 graphics card(s)


900watt power supply

Quad Core processor

DDR2 4g ram

750g Hard Drive

Creative X-Fi sound card

Zalman CPU cooler

I'm not sure what case would work for this, so any recommendations would also be greatly appreciated. I know that's a lot of stuff to stuff into a case, but I'm not worried about how big the case is either.

Any comments/suggestions would be highly appreciated, as I really am not sure if this would work or not. I am thinking of possibly doubling the graphics cards, and possibly more ram, although 4g should be enough for now.

Thanks all!

One more thing you probably might already have this but get some thermal paste not the one that comes with the heat sink like artic silver 5 it does wonders compared to the stock paste
