I recently discovered the Wish List feature on NewEggs site, I never noticed it before...it makes making new builds much easier to eventually pick from. Anyway the goal of this build is to be cheap, cool, quiet, and semi-powerful. I plan on doing some gaming, but nothing intense like Crysis. I think Oblivion and Bioshock would be the most intensive games I'd be playing. I enabled sharing of this list, here is the link for it. Critiques are welcomed, I imagine some will tell me to get a different PSU, but I've used that specific one in three builds now and never had a problem, so for the price I'm pleased with it. My other PSU of choice is OCZ's Stealth Stream. I plan on overclocking this system to 400FSB for a nice even 3.2GHz and 1-1 FSB-RAM ratio. I've also used this A-Data RAM in four builds now and its cheap and stable, it just doesn't overclock at all but I won't be OC'ing the RAM. What'd I really like to get out of this thread is maybe a few tips to cutting the cost as much as possible. I decided to go with the 3870, I had a 8800GTX then sold it to buy a 8800GT. The GT performs well but is a little loud for my taste, and even the GT has more power than I need. I figure the new 3870 is the perfect level of performance I need for now, I also read its cool and most surprisingly of all...quiet! I've owned a couple ATI cards in the past and they were all ridiculously loud, specifically the 1800XT. I thought of going with the 3850 but I'm just not feeling it, its too mid-range for my taste. So yeah, if anyone has any thoughts I'd love to hear them. I often make high end builds and then realize I never do anything or play any games that require that much power. I usually play FFXI, WoW, WC3 and a few other oldie but goodies. The latest games more often than not don't interest me, but I want to have enough computing power to at least play them on decent graphic levels. I play at a low resolution of 1360x768, so again I think the 3870 is good for me.
