Okay, well I am going to be building my first computer and I am a bit stuck with the parts, ive got a few parts but not 100% sure if there any good or compatible with each other.

I would also like if anyone could put some recommendations for these parts :

Computer case, power supply, MOBO, and Hard drive, and disk drives ( think that's what it's calleD)

And any suggestions on the parts Ive already gotten picked out.

Thanks in advance!




Also note this will be used for gaming, and surfing of the web.

Hi kannibleklown,
If you provide us with a budget we can provide you with the appropriate hardware info but for what its worth heres a list (based on what you have budgeted for your gfx card);
Case=$104.99 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811133183 $79.99 after mail in rebate
MB = $99.99 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813130235
CPU= $99.99 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819103871
Ram =$84.99 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231276
GFX= $384.99 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814131352
HDD= $159.98 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822136697 X2 500GB
BRay=$99.99 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16827136181
DVD =$19.99 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16827135204
PSU= $129.99 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817139009 $109.99 after mail in rebate.
TOT =$1184.90
I have chosen 2 500GBs HDDs as opposed to a single 1TB so you could have the OS on one on a partition and data only on the other, this way you can always back up important data to the second HDD.
I have put another couple of HDD options below for you, hope you find the information helpful.

1TB = $89.99 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822136533
1.5TB=$84.99 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822136513
