    I decided the easiest way to make a Gaming computer that has all the right stuff in it for the best price, and making sure i dont have anything incompatiable or anything that is cheap, i thought hey you guys can make me a list!!!! lol So can you make a account on newegg if u dont have one (no credit card needed) And can you make me a wishlist full of everything i will need to make a computer? Make sure you dont go over 800 bucks please. : )

    REQUEST: motherboard with sli for upgrades, a sound card, if possible the nvidia 7900gt? (has to be included in final price)

    THANK YOU IF YOU CAN PUT THIS LIST OF STUFF TOGEATHER FOR ME :) :) ;) :)

    If you want that stuff that you request...you might need more than $800 bucks...Just for an SLI board and the 7900GT its $400 bucks right there. Go look around newegg and put a list together and we will critique it for you. You gotta do some work for yourself.

    You won't learn anything if you don't do it yourself. So in the long run we wouldn't be helping you at all. Check out the Techpowerup! review database and read about potential parts. Post your list and we'll fix mistakes you make (if any) and suggest better parts or deals. Ask a bunch of questions, it doesn't matter how silly you think they are we'll answer them. I've asked some dumb questions before and done some dumb things we all have to start somewhere. So start digging and researching you'll be surprised how much you learn! Good luck!

    Correct, If you dont even know what you want to buy, how are you going to put it all together?

    Wazzle you read my mine :), thats an amazing case, I highly reccomend it, Lian Li makes great structured cases, also they are light.

    Coolermaster Centurion. It's not as good as the Lian Li, but there is nothing that can come close to it in that price bracket. I have one and it's great.

    what about the cons?

    Pros: Very light, well built, solid, high-quality materials, easy to work with....


    Cons: The 120mm fans that come with the case are extremely weak and don't push much airflow. My CPU heatsink is a fanless thermaltake heatsink (pretty huge) and my P4 3.4 Northwood ran up to 73 degrees C un... More »



    Pros: Great Air Flow, Easy to take apart, pleanty of room inside...


    Cons: The cable to connect the front ports is not long enough.... More »

    I dont know why so many people like that case, its FUGLY. Reminds me of the mid-90's Packard-Bell computers with their ugly bright teal bezels.

    Thermaltake makes some very nice budget cases, that arent butt ugly-

    You have to set it to public. You might need to make a newegg account and save it under that to be able to set it to public.

    First of all ignore reviews when it comes to people, Only on certain items.

    Im telling you, PVT is buying that Lian Li case for his system this yaer, because most osu reccomended it. I have an Lian Li v1000b (expensive), But I have seen many people with that case that wazzle reccomended, I recomend you get that. If you really want to not worry about reviews, get a light case, good airflow, side window ect I reccomend the matrix VX. an amazing case

    It with window http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811133008

    The other version http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811133007 (not as great but good for budget)

    Yeah that Matrix VX looks nice, though it all depends on your taste.

    I would prefer the LianLi because it is very elegant and simple, with good airflow and high quality construction. It may not have "toolless drive bays" but do you really need that in a computer? I mean when was the last time you swapped out a drive?

    Lol yea its a very hard choice, Id personally go with Lian Li, but the matrix just makes it hard. Glad I dont need to get a case under 100$ lol, id be pulling hair out trying to find out what to get.

    Looks good. You still need-
    Hard drive
    power supply
    processor

    An Athlon 64 3000+ Venice is pretty cheap now and overclocks nicely.
