Re: Help build a gaming PC.
This would be my suggestion. Get a graphics card off ebay, cause they're pretty cheap there. And thats the one thing I would say, go big. With all these new direct X 10 cards out, either wait a month or two til they are cheaper, or wait a little while, and all the direct X 9.0c cards should get a bit cheaper. Spend a good $250 on your GPU. 2gbs of RAM. Make sure you calculate in windows, or get Vista RC2 from Microsoft. One more thing, get your case off ebay, they go pretty cheap. You can usually get a case and 500-550W combo.
Good luck, I just finished building my computer, but mine was only about $550-$600.
