OK, I am total newbie to this so please bare with me. just got laid off so this will have to a BIG TIME BUDGET BUILD, as i am working with very little cash. im trying to keep it as close to $300 as possible (Tough, I know). im not a gamer nor do i intend to be, im not going to use it as a TV either. i will be using the system mainly to download videos, music, make home movies with camcorder footage and school work, nothing too hardcore. OH, and I'll be running XP on it. now dont get me wrong id like to have something as fast as i can get away with given my budget. the computer i currently have now is too embarrassing to even mention, only things i can apply towards this build are the hard drive, dvd-rw and monitor. SO FAR after some snooping around ive come up with a rough draft build, PLEASE feel free to make any suggestions that could help me out. a better item for my cause, if i am missing anything, whether adding or subtracting a few bucks here or there would add any benefit. OH, i live quite close to a frys and microcenter BTW. CPU: Intel E5200 69.99+ fs @ newegg. id like to O/C to about 3.5 GHz http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116072 MoBo: GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L Micro ATX @ newegg 52.99+fs http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128357&Tpk=GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L RAM: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK - 54.99 @ newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231166 TOWER/Case: Rosewill TU-155 Black Steel ATX Black 0.8mm SGCC Steel Mid Tower 59.99@ newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147001 = $238.00 so far ... questions: 1) would the stock cooler allow me to go to about 3.5 GHz ? or would i need a new one? 2) are separate video cards needed ONLY if i plan on gaming or watching movies? in other words, would the integrated video be more then adequate for my needs? 3) will the stock PSU that come with my case make do, or will i have to get another one?
