Default Please build me a gaming computer!


I want to build myself a custom computer for Gaming/some music creating, and the general use of internet and such

I have a budget of about $1000 CAD (Canadian). The $1000 is for the desktop alone, not including keyboard and programs and such

I will be using www.ncix.com or www.tigerdirect.ca (Which ever has better prices/parts)

Thanks for all your help

canadian currency is worth more then us currency right? Also with that much money u can buy a very nice computer. I would give u my links of my favorites that contain my $1000 gaming pc but its a american website and im not sure if they ship to canada. Also my pc isn't working right now but if you still want the links ill give em to you once my pc is fixed =P.

1000 Canadian is about 900 USD last time I checked, so in that case...
CPU: Core 2 Duo E6400
GPU: 8600GTS (If you're interested in DX10 and are a big time gamer)
X1950PRO (If you're a casual gamer, CS:S, and don't plan on doing really heavy graphics intensive stuff.)
Mobo: ASUS P5B series that fits you best
RAM: Corsair Value or XMS2 2x1GB dual channel kit (OCZ/Mushkin/Crucial are good too)
HDD: 320GB WD/Hitachi/Seagate
PSU: Anything with upwards of 450W
Optical Drives: Up to you
Case: Up to you
OS: Vista Home Premium or XP Pro if you're more comfortable with that.
Just occured to me that you wanted to do some music editing
SoundCard: CreativeLabs Soundblaster X-FI or Audigy ZS
| AMD 3800+ X2 Dual Core Processor | ASUS A8N-e nF4 Ultra | Hitachi Deskstar 250gb 3.0 gb/s | 1gb Corsair Value RAM 2x512 | eVGA geforce 6800GS | sound blaster live! 24-bit | NZXT Trinity Classic chassis | OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI PSU |
