I'm Looking for a new computer for gaming, I want it to be good, but not too good because money is an issue, I'm looking for bang for my buck. Any help, or suggestions on which website to go to buy one, and what kind of processor I should get, a long with ATI VS Nvidia for gaming. Anything would be much appreciated and helpful. Thanks, my price range is about 600-750$

An AMD based system will give you the most bang for a buck!

Buy the components off Newegg.

Ideally something like this:

[RIG]

Processor : AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz ($161)

Mobo : GIGABYTE GA-MA785G-UD2H ($90)

Memory : Patriot G Series Sector 5 Edition 4GB ($97)

GFX : Sapphire HD 5770 1GB (165 - 10 = $155)

PSU : Corsair 650TX (90 -10=$80)

HDD : Samsung 1TB 7200RPM ~ 90$

OD: LITE-ON 24X ($29)

Case: Antec 300 Black ($59)

TOTAL: $761

[EXTRAS]

Monitor: ASUS 19" LCD ($130)

Speakers: Creative T3130 2.1 System ($50)

BANG ! :blink:

+ Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound ($6)

Excessive. There is thermal grease pre-applied to the stock HSF. The stock stuff is good enough unless you plan to overclock.
