I have very little cash at the moment. So, I'm looking for some help with upgrading my system to a pretty good Gaming system. I get free S&H on Amazon if that helps any? Thank you for all of your help!

YOU: I'm looking for a "hard drive" with plenty of "RAM" in the "megahertz."

Do you want to build a completely new system, or upgrade what you have? The reason I ask is you have been asked twice to give us your specs so we can see what you have to work with in case you want an upgrade.

If you want specs on a completely new build, let us know.

For that budget you could even do a new build.

I know you like Amazon, but I usually go Newegg for my computer components. You can look at them and see if Amazon has a matching price, but anyway...

Case: COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW - This case should hold what you want. $49

Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 EVO AM3+ AMD 970 - This is part of the new AMD 900 series chipset, which allows for the new AM3+ CPU's when they are out. It also has USB 3 and SATA 6. This is a basic motherboard, if you are going to do Crossfire or SLI, you may want an FX series motherboard. $119

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz - You can keep this until the new AM3+ CPU's are out, or overclock it since it is Black Edition. For gaming, this is a good CPU. $113

GPU: HIS H687F1G2M Radeon HD 6870 1GB - This is a good upper mid-level graphics card. $184 (Before $20 Mail-in rebate)

PSU: CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W - This will easily power this system. $69 (Before $20 Mail-in rebate)

RAM: CORSAIR 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 - 4GB is enough for most people, if you are doing content creation, or have many windows open at once, get another for 8GB. This is a single stick of RAM. $35

HDD: Western Digital AV-GP WD5000AVDS 500GB - Should be enough... $50

ODD: Sony Optiarc CD/DVD Burner Black SATA Model AD-7260S-0B - A basic burner. $20

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM - You need this $99

Grand Total: $745 (Before rebates and shipping)

Fantastic! Thank you! I already have Windows 7 Ultimate, and a 600W PSU, but everything is fantastic. Thank you!

Note that unless you have a full, boxed, retail version of Windows 7, you cannot reuse it due to licensing. If it is a new unopened copy of a full or OEM version, you can use it. OEM versions are not transferrable. There are no technical limitations preventing you from doing this, only a licensing one. However, if you are gaming and don't need those two items, you can upgrade your GPU to the HIS IceQ X Turbo H695QNT2G2M Radeon HD 6950 2GB which is a high-end card. Be careful, that card is long at about 10.5 inches which may not fit in a mid-ATX case. The Sentey Arvina Extreme Division Tower would be a good full-ATX case.
