Default Re: Making my own computer.

Now i would do what arch and superman said. You will really need a better PSU. Its seems like the machine you are going to make would be wonderful for gaming and burning your fav games and dvds. Even down the track you might want to setup a little raid system for yourself. Now power will be the only thing that might stop you reaching your goal, and remember that if you put to much hardware in without a powerful enough psu, you can end up frying one of your items (hardware).

playing oblivion with onboard graphics? I wouldn't suggest it, it probably won't even start up. As thepiguy said, u will want atleast a 7600GT for oblivion. It would give u medium/high settings and decent fps.
