Default This is my new computer

These are the parts I've been wanting(P.S. I like to game a lot):

CPU


Motherboard

Power Supply

RAM

Hard Drive

CD/DVD Drive


What do you guys think? Anything I should change? or is there a place I can get better prices?

This is technically my first time building a full PC, other times I've only bought parts like a new video card.

Thanks in advance

Nice with what you have there

I agree on the motherboard completly, as I have it on this build I'm running off now, with an overclocked Core 2 Quad, running at 3.2ghz, though its capable of reaching 3.6ghz rather easily too.

CPU is also rather nice, and can't really say anything bad about the RAM/hard drive or DVD drive.

Rosewill I've heard are okay, so that power supply shouldn't give you any issues either.

What is the video card you'll be running with?

I haven't tried the onboard sound on the motherboard, but it should be sufficent.

Yeah, the 8800GT is a very nice card indeed.
Beats my 8800GTS 640 which I spent double on a few months ago

After christmas, they'll be releasing the newer 8800GTS I presume, which will probably beat the GTX too.

If you can afford a Q6600, these are a very nice investment, and offer 4 cores for games in the future

Well, I was thinkin about a Quad core, I just didn't know if it was worth it right now. I'll definitely look in to it. I'm not a big spender as I'm just going into college, so I'm trying to keep the price down as much as possible, but still come away with a good computer.

The Q6600 is around $270 depends on where you get it. It's not bad at all compared to when they first came out ($600+). So it's a huge drop in price already. But if you must, a regular dual core is still nice to have around. The Intel E6600 and up are all favorites.

Hmmm, I'm really interested in the Quad core right now. Would it work with everything else I've got?

It's actually $10 cheaper than the processor than the Dual Core.
