I put together some parts on Newegg and the estimated cost is about $1600.00 for everything. I won't be getting everything at once I'll be getting different parts at different times and eventually I'll build everything together little by little.
I was thinking something like getting the case first then motherboard and everything else so that I can build it as I go along but now I'm thinking about getting all the parts first then getting the case and building it all in one shot.
I'll be getting a full ATX tower so I'm sure I'll have enough room for everything atleast I hope.
Here is the list I put together. Let me know if I can change anything for a better bang for my buck or if I could get something cheaper that does the same exact job as what I have listed..
Motherboard - $199.99
ASUS M4A79 Deluxe AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard

CPU Fan - $36.99 - May or may not get

Subtotal: $1,434.89 - Which isn't that bad I would say for a gaming pc but I will be buying in portions so maybe prices will go down or newer products will come out..
So how does the list look? What can I do or change around?
