Default Re: **New Build Guide**

Your budget system build was very helpful. I have a few questions though. I need a video card which you did not include in that setup so what would you suggest? I also already have a 6600 gt (old school I know), but will that be compatible with pci-e 2.0? Also, I have never bought a micro-atx board, does the case you buy matter with that? I already have a case and it is pretty big, but it doesn't matter right? Also, let's just say I wanted a regular ATX board, what would you suggest? Sorry for all the questions, I have been out of the computer loop for years and am new to all the technology today. Thank you.

Alright I went through your build and found some combo's and some upgrades thats were cheaper Got you upto 4 gigs ram. And few other things. If you want to stick with the 2 gigs you can go back to it and be around a 700$ build instead of the 750.

Motherboard/CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.480278
CPU Cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103057
Power Supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139005
Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148323
GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150467
Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811103026

If its not listed it was the same as you had listed. Let me know what you think.

*Currently updating, should be done in a few hours. I feel embarrassed that this is so out of date.*

I believe the 460 is actually quite a noisy and watt honking card, so would prefer something a lot less noisey and a lot less power consumption too, preferably ATI. I was thinking about a 5770, as it'l save me a bit of money and I don't need the power of such a top card as the 460.

You don't really need to spend a lot on a motherboard if you're not overclocking, apart from if you want a multi-GPU setup. The ASRock should do exactly what it says it will, and I don't think you should base your opinion on one bad experience. But if you do want an alternative, this would do.

The 5770 and the 460 768MB both perform around the same and use the same amount of power roughly, so it's down to personal preference.
