Can you tell us your budget and what you're going to use this computer for? Like are you using it for heavy gaming or video editing or just plain surfing the web.

For the hard drive, I'd recommend either the Seagate 7200.11 (I couldn't find a 320GB on that site) or the Western Digital SATA drives like this 500GB or this 320GB.
I also recommend this LG CD/DVD drive than the Samsung.

Well. i dont think Cod4 is considered "light" gaming. but anyways..

Your gonna need a pretty good card.

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814150229

Is pretty good. Its got great reviews and it comes with company of heroes.

You could wait till the 21st for the 9600gt but that could put you a little over budget (it's $170ish)

What OS do you plan on installing?


PS: nice case XD I like green

Hi there,

To play games well, you should be looking at an 8800 series card, the 8800GT still cuts it pretty nice, but might put you over budget.

If you are going to get an 8600 series, I would not bother with the 8600GT, go at least for the 8600GTS. Of course, for this price, you should look at the HD 3850.

What PSU do you have for this build?

I don't see a video card listed, so maybe the OP already has one?

If you are going to get an 8600 series, I would not bother with the 8600GT, go at least for the 8600GTS. Of course, for this price, you should look at the HD 3850.

I wouldn't even bother with the 8600GTS, as the 9600GT 512MB will be about the same price as the 512MB version of the 8600GTS, but outperform it by around 90%. The same goes for the HD3850, as the 9600GT 512MB should be a good deal cheaper than the 512MB version of the HD3850, but still outperform it.
