Default This is where you guys come in...

:]

I am wanting to try and update these computer parts to build my computer. Arrizx helped me put this together in like August, but I am wanting to check again to see if prices have changed or if I can update stuff and what not.

I want to keep like a 800-900 dollar budget on this, so I don't know if the monitor is really needed, I could get a CRT... But maybe I just don't know how good LCDs are... I also want to make sure it has S-Video and things to put video on my tv, so I can watch movies or anime or whatever on the TV instead of the laptop.

I want to be able to run World of Warcraft at MAX setting at a good FPS (30+). I also want to be able to play other games with it too, at max settings and good fps.

So just see what you can do with this list, and I know some of the links are broken, but I want you to try to look anyway... I will update them asap, I just have problems with making sure everything is compatible :[

Rosewill PSUs are the ones I don't trust. To what I see, higher than 13V rails is going to fry your PC when it blows.

Use this one:

You can connect the wires you need and don't connect the ones you don't need.

I trust Enhance more than the HIPRO one, just because Enhance OEMs for Silverstone, which makes very impressive powersupplies.
