Default Custom Build Help.

Hey guys.

I have an HP Compaq Presario SR1000V desktop. I want to strip it all out and rebuild with the case. I want to make a custom gaming computer. So of course I would want at least 1GB or so of memory, a nice video card, and a nice processor.

My budget ranges from 750-900 USD. I have a monitor I can use, so I just need for the computer.

So if you guys could list up any stuff you could help with, it would be appreciated.

Thanks :]

You're going to need a PSU, too. You really don't need to spend 250 on a motherboard. Get a cheaper one and then get a 500-550 watt power supply.

How about this Mobo

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813128017

Here are some different PSUs

I have used a Rosewill for over 1.5 Years and I am very satisfied with it.

But thermaltake makes a great one you may want to look into
