Would help if you gave us a budget so we can know how much room we have to tweak your build. I'm sure someone could make some suggestions to you if you do that. Also, links to components on newegg saves us the trouble of looking each up for ourselves. I'm feeling generous but running out-of-time or else I would do that for you.

Where are you planning on getting these components from? I tried to look at the mobo on newegg but it was out-of-stock. I'm assuming you weren't going through them.

what the heck are you using for a graphics card man ? or does that mobo have an integrated one ?

Antec 300 Mini Tower ? i believe its mid-tower

i think you should find a cheaper price man, for 750 you can build yourself something a lot better than what you listed above.

My friend is building a $800 computer and its a lot better than that, i found him all the parts and everything. He mostly needs it for media and such but it has a Q6600 with an 8600 GT, not that great but its good enough for low end gaming, and a nice Asus mobo with a 500gb HDD. 4gb ram and a decent looking mid-tower. 450w supply. A few other things for about $800, than again he already has a monitor and such and i used newegg.

but if you were to ask me, save your money and find a better site unless you didnt list all of your parts ?

hmm try tiger, they sometimes have some good combo deals their, do u have anybody you trust in the states or anything ? maybe you can send some cash over to them and they can buy the stuff. Its not a mini case lol, i do not know why NCIX is calling it that but its a mid-tower case. They probably made a typo or something cause mini-towers dont exactly look like a normal computer chassis.

I can see that NCIX is a bit expensive lol, about $80 for that mid-tower case when its $50 on newegg, somewhat of a difference lol. This is what you guys get for having free health insurance, sucks newegg doesnt ship out of states

ya, i dont have anyone who lives in the states, i could find some random perosn on the internet but that might be risky. I want to order everything from the same lace, but tiger doesnt have the case i want.
