Default My new budget gaming build, so far.

If you have any ideas on any changes, please don't hesitate to say it. I'm still open on new ideas and haven't ordered everything yet.

Processor: Intel Q6600


Power Supply: Sunbeam PSU-HUSH680-US-BL 680W ATX 12V 2.0 Power Supply
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817709015

Memory: G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory


I haven't decided on motherboard or case yet. I still need helping in a choosing a decently priced motherboard which is good for gaming. I'll be running an ATI HD 2600 PRO 512MD PCI-Express X16 for now.

I would go with an OCZ Power Supply. They're relatively cheap and have good quality. The RAM you picked is fine. It will be slightly bottlenecked to 667MHz (Q6600 has 1333MHz FSB right?). Look at some cooler master cases. I believe the Centurion 5 is around $50.

I already own a 2600. I'' get a 8800 when i save up the money. I really don't have a budget. All the money I earn in tips, I use to buy parts. A little bit at a time. If I had to put a number on it. I would say about 250 dollars more.

You can get a very good P45 board for under $100: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138123 It has CF support and very good overclocking capabilities.

As for the case, I've always liked the Cooler Master RC-690: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119137

I would get a board with the P45 chipset
and an E8400 over the Q6600 for gaming
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115037
AS far as a budget case... this has a great price/performance ratio

He has already picked the Q6600. That's an AM2/AM2+ board.
