Default Build o.O

My aim is kind of for it to be a gaming computer, by this I mean World Of Warcraft, Half-Life 2, Battlefield 2, etc. I want it to run a decent framerate of like 30-40+ at MAX or Very High settings.

If you could look at this build anytime in the near future, and maybe respond and let me know what you think, I would appreciate it. My budget is somewhere close to 800-950 dollars, which I think gives me enough budget to make a good computer, I think anyway.

I didn't really know how to deal with the LCD response time, the COMBO DVD/CD ROM drive speeds, etc. I think all of that stuff is still compatible too. The case is ugly, lol, but it's cheap, so unless you could, or would take the time, to look for one just as good but cooler looking I will stick with that one lol. So yeah if the consistency isn't there for all the parts to work, let me know, and I will replace, or you can etc.

So yeah if you see anything that could be replaced for something better like the Video Card or Processor or something let me know. Someone also told me that Rosewill makes bad PSUs and not to use that one, but I don't want to kill my budget, lol. So yeah, take a look if possible man. :]

Default Re: Build o.O

Mm, it all seems compatible to me, if that's what you want, that should do fine for your gaming necessities. But, I'll just throw in the fact that AM2 X2 processors are fairly cheap right now so you could definitely aim to get one of those, and the Core 2 Duo is really, really nice for it's price ATM. The only thing that I have an objection to is the power supply, I'm not familiar with the quality of Rosewill brand power supplies, but I'd be safe and take a 'middle-ish' FSP group power supply or maybe OCZ/Antec.

Oh, btw, this should be in the Computer Hardware section

Well I am sorry I committed the crime of the century. I understand how much it inconveniences everyone that my post is in this section. I hope you do not excommunicate me from the forums, or exile me, etc. I realize what I have done is wrong and I am sincerely sorry. This is my apology. T-T

@Mod
Could you move it?

I looked at that... seems interesting... add a 135-150 dollar monitor and a 10 dollar keyboard and like 30 dollar mouse and that's right under my budget...

what do you guys think?
