Hey, I use my pc specifically for gaming and surfing - not much else.. This is what I've come up with.. Overclocking will be minimal if at all.. CPU: E8500 (not a lot of games can use 4 cores - and speed is king) MOBO: Gigabyte GA-X48T-DQ6 (Feel like trying out an Intel chipset with DDR3 support - good cheap motherboard) RAM: 4GB DDR3 1600mhz Memory.. I'm thinking OCZ, Corsair or Kingston. Whatever is in stock and payable. All three are on the motherboard compatibility list.. Graphics: 4870X2 card (Cheapest in stock, and it beats the GTX280 in most test. And I like the 2GB of memory for my 1900*1200 res) HDD: Samsung or Seagate 1TB drives PSU: Well, here's my question actually.. I have a Fortron Epsilon 600w PSU today, but I'm not sure it can run my new system with that X2 graphics card.. I have about 4 HDD's more to put into the system, and a dvd burner as well..
