Default New Build!

So its been about 3 months or so.. time to build another machine!

I have my wish list on NewEgg which may be accessed through this link:
http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=12508948

Any recommendations?

I intend to play some games, but not to heavy of a gamer.. ;-) I have to much college work and other stuff for that.. hehe.

Very nice build. That should work very nicely.

The video card you selected is out of stock though.

Yeah, its a real shame..
I may have to wait a few days to pick up the video card, or just pick a different type. If nothing else, I'll pick up the 4890. ;-p

No harm, no foul.. ;-p

You could get this one: SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 4870 1GB. It's $5 cheaper, has a better cooler and free shipping.

Another person from New York. That makes more than I care to count.

EDIT: I also advise against that RAM. It died on me after just 2 months of use.

I really wouldn't worry about the memory selection. G.Skill is very good memory. I've used it in many rigs without any problems.
