    Hey everyone, I have been tasked by a friend of mine to configure an economically viable gaming machine from scratch. I forgot to ask him if he wanted to go DX10, but for the moment I am assuming he is and working from there. I am not too far yet and am looking for a little commentary on what I am planning to get for him.

    I still haven't decided whether to go AMD or Intel yet. I would like to go dual core for a reasonable price too. I guess I will cross that bridge when the times comes and in the meantime pick out other parts. Any suggestions?

    Here's what I have so far:

    PSU:

    Monitor: $159.99
