Please leave feedback. also if you think I should upgrade any items or downgrade something to further upgrade. I wish I could downgrade something cause I wanted to add a nifty pair of speakers but eh....I was thining of maybe only going with 512k ram but I dunno might be needed.. Or perhaps going with some better ram but I dunno lol

Thanks for your input

I might bump the price up to 900 so I can get some speakers and maybe a better vid card or something but atleast what I have now is safe.. to an extent heh

might want to try checking out zipzoomfly.com on some prices for like the hard drive, mobo, pcu, and ram. i personally like it better then newegg b/c it has free shipping, cept on cases i believe. so could save you money on that, plus might be able to find those things cheaper there.

I did check out that site however the free shipping was just added up with the little extra amount that each items cost there

Eh, I would uprgrade your cpu maybe. A lil bit more power might come in handy down the road.

theres no point, the 3200+ overclocks to the same speeds as the 3500+, i agree with Niko, the 7600gt is far more powerfull than the 6600gt and its only $40 more so thats well worth it, as for the ram i would get something from OCZ instead or some corsair xms, the last thing i would change is the hard drive, get a seagate sata2 instead, once u do all that go ahead and buy lol
