O_o also there was no-where else to put this post and this spot made sense.
I am putting together my first computer. But first i need the parts.
I dont want everything top of the line =__= way too poor for that.
Im thinking mid-high end type thing.
so my big questions are as follows:
What video card should i get?
what cpu should i get?
what motherboard should i go so i can fit the video card and cpu on it?
how much memory will i need to get the most out of the video card/cpu?
What Case and power supply should i get to power all that efficiently?
and im thinking my cash ceiling will be 1200$ or so. Lets divide that first:
200-300$ video card 299$ nVidia 8800 GTS
150-300$ cpu 222$ Intel Core Duo E6600 2.4Ghz
100-150$ audio card
200-250$ case + power supply
150-300$ memory sticks 154$ G.Skill 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 SDRAM
100-200$ Hard Drives
Ill be getting most of the stuff from Newegg.com so if you guys know of good deals do tell.
O_o im sure i can figure the rest out easily enough. I'll figure out an audio card on my own, not nearly as much to choose from.
I've got a screen and netword card already. And ill figure out the cooling set up after i put it together and tested the heat in there.
Being the total newb that i am i dont know if those price ranges are even remotely reasonable so bear with me.
Looking forward to many suggestions
