OK. I've finally decided that I'm going to build a computer. Like I've said before it's going to be used for music, internet, and gaming. I've already put something together, but I had no idea what I was doing :thumbsup:

I need everything except a monitor and speakers and my budget's about $1000 (this ones a little over but that's ok).

Edit: I upgraded the video card, psu, and os. Now it's about $1200 but that's ok.

CD/DVD drive:

Feel free to change as much as you want. I'm not final on any of it. Thanks.

The only potential problem that I see is if you ever decide to run Crossfire, that motherboard only has one PCI-E X16.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

If you look around newegg, they have 750gb hard drives for the same price, if not cheaper. You may not need that extra storage, but might as well if it doesn't cost more!

Keep in mind that the Q6600 can heat up. I suggest getting an aftermarket cooler, such as the Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 or the Zalman 9500A.
