Im planning on building a new gaming computer. Will be ordering withing the next week or 2

I prefer an Intel core 2 duo. And a mobo that will support sli, dual -core and quad-core cpu. IN case i decide to do more upgrades in the future.

Im going to have to get a new graphics card later, as with a new case, and power supply(which is pretty new an antec earthwatts 650w). And i will keep my dvd drives and harddrives, unless the new mobo only has sata.

Im trying to keep the cost as low as possible but still be a good machine.

So i basically need help finding a mobo, cpu, ram, and a hdd if mobo only has sata.

oh and i i 4got got something just add it in

thanks

what do you think, if you find something that is equally good or better at a lower price let me know. I want to keep it as low as possible.

RAM
500GB HDD
750GB HDD
DVD Burner

The RAM you picked is slow compared to what you can put in there. Also, I could find a faster DVD Burner, at the same price. Finally, both HDD I picked have twice as much Cache as the one you picked. Price wise, its up to you if you really need the extra storage space at the cost of $30 (It is technically more economical in pricing though). I left the other parts the same. So the two prices are... $532.95 with the 500GB HDD, or $562.95 with the 750GB HDD.
