So my computer recently contracted a virus, and without the ability to use it, I decided it was time to put together a new one. I wanted to put together my own for the experience and cheaper cost, but It'll be my first time and I'm honestly about as new as you can get to it.

After reading numerous articles and looking through many different sites, I believe I've found the parts I'm looking for. Before they're purchased however, I'd love some feedback and/or constructive criticism. I'm going for a computer that can play modern games, but my budget is $800.

Coolmaster make good cases, is there a power supply included? If not I'd go for at least 800 watt unit to give yourself some headroom for future power requirements.
What about a monitor? I'm assuming you've already got one.

Have you considered a blu-ray player/dvd burner combo they are probably not a lot more expensive. Assuming of course your monitor is HD capable.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention I have the moniter, keyboard and mouse covered.

I was thinking of a 500 watt power, but 800 does sounds smarter. As for the blue Ray/DVD burner, that's a good idea. I didn't really consider since I already have a blueray player, but if it's not too much extra I'll go for one :)

thanks for the feedback!
