Hi,

That build looks fine for a mediocre gaming rig. I'm just wondering what games your expecting to play and what your budget is for this build that way we may have better suggestions for you.

well, honestly i'm going to be working this summer for the rig ^_^ since i will be able to work as many days as i want and i'm a bit lazy.... :) erm anyway i would be able to go higher i guess... but now i'm thinking about a new motherboard to hold this entire setup because i read some reviews on newegg about this motherboard and well... seems like about 2 out of 7 of these motherboards have something wrong with them... for example, lan card does not work, one of the ram slots is malfunctioning, the entire mobo breaks down in 2 days and stuff like that :/
any suggestions? :)

and sorry for my poor english ^_^

Hi there,

Do not get SODIMM RAM sticks, they are for notebook computers.

I strongly suggest you work hard and save as much as you can, then return when you have the money. We will help you configure your choices then. This is because the technology market moves so quickly, and what we suggest today may very well be different next week.

Cheers

Troy
