I figured I might as well come to the experts here at GeeksToGo for some expert guidance and support on finding parts for my new PC build. I'm working with a budget of $500. I've looked at Newegg and Amazon, trying to find the best deals, but I'm pretty lost as to what grounds to start on. I'd like to be able to run Windows 7 64-bit and play recent games like Diablo III and DotA 2 at max or recommended settings with no issues. I am excluding monitor, sound system, keyboard, and mouse from this build because I already have each of those items.

So, can someone help me find parts at a good price? :-) So far I only know what case I want, which is this one here:
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811553009

I still need: Mother board, HDD, PSU, Graphics card, Processor, RAM... Am I missing anything else? I think that's it.

Gday intelguy77, welcome back.
So we can best help you, please supply some more information.

I still need: Mother board, HDD, PSU, Graphics card, Processor, RAM... Am I missing anything else? I think that's it.

You will need an OS. If you
already have a Windows retail disc
(64 bit ver.) and legit key code? you can use it. You will also need an Optical Drive.
What would be your budget?
What is your ZIP code?

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post an OTListIt log in THAT forum.
