Default Re: So I'm building a computer on a $600US budget...

@sniperviper21
I was looking at this too... any good?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125282
And this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125282
Perhaps, this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121325

Best of the three?

Will a 500W power supply cover this and what kind of cooling will I need? Will I need nothing more that a clip-in exhaust fan or something more advanced? Also I can do wiring as far as fans and plugging stuff in but will I need some sort of wiring harness? Also will I need additional cooling for the integrated graphics processor?
Will all of this fit on that poor overloaded mobo?!?!?!?

VVV Ignore the below post I can't delete it... VVV

the Radeon 4850 if you want a good gaming card for the money,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150351

that is the exact card in my machine right now, i max out every game but crysis easly, it has a really good cooler on it if your case has good airflow, and has double lifetime warrenty. Its a Bangin Card

The 4850 will perform better than the 9800GT. - A 500W PSU is more than enough for those specifications..

he would need the 500W PSU for the 4850 so i'd say he is good to go.

Now, I can build a similar PC for the same price but have it shipped built from iBUYPOWER, should I just do that?

Like sniperviper said, if you trust yourself, then do it yourself

The experience you gain is really invaluable.

I've never build a PC before (though I'm sure I can) but I just don't want DOA components and random ship times. (Getting components weeks apart etc.)

I have built a rack server and code multiple languages and am the operating system KING! (dual boots mods etc.) But, I don't know if I should give this a crack or not. I currently have a garbage laptop so this will be worthwhile. I suppose this build will lead to many so I just need a final decision on the graphics card and I will order them parts!

get the card i mentioned (XFX) and u'll be good to go,

jsut order them all from newegg, pay the 3 bucks for rushed billing or w/e it is, and buy it all at once, and u'll have it in 3 business days, not weeks.

If that's true then you should know 2 things.
1> Vista will handle all of that hardware better than XP.
2> You need a 64 bit OS to see all of that ram you plan on chucking in.

NewEgg is famous for getting hardware to the buyer in short order. And DOA componets can happen no matter where you buy them.
