    I'm on a mini vacation from the cheating scene.

    Reason is because I'm in process of a new pc build.

    A few people are helping me find the right parts.
    But I want your opinion as to what I should/would get.
    As I see it, ( my first build mind you ) I can do this for under $600.

    Motherboard - Intel based
    CPU - Intel
    Heatsink/Heatsink Fan
    Power Supply
    Opitical Drive
    Hard Drive
    LCD monitor

    What would be a good choice for these?

    What purpose is the PC for? Can you buy from newegg?

    Purpose is to play games first, and multimedia..
    Yes, I can buy from newegg. People keep posting newegg links to me about certain PC components, is newegg like the super warehouse on the internets?

    All I need is a good pc, scratch LCD from that list, I can't afford it.
    So if you all can post nice lists of parts you are familiar with, and that you know work, I appreciate it.

    OK Gentlemen.. Here it is.. my list.
    Anything with a ++++ means, I'm dead set on getting it.

    NOW.. this leaves a video card ( have a 7900GT currently, RAM
    may upgrade to :
    , and other smaller accessories for me to think over later.
    I'm really leaning to the 1TB My Book Home Edition.
    IF.. I can't get it ( it's ebay'n for about $120), then my next choice is the 500GB internal. Or a 500GB external next.

    So, how's this look? Its under $500, I basically used different lists people offered and did my own price

    /me *spreads my arms out wide in glee*

    I'm typing to you from the new pc setup. I have OS problems atm, so till I get that fixed, I'm laying low. I had to format my old HDD, so I have nothing, was smart enough to backup my Firefox and smaller apps ( VLC, Pidgin, etc ) and Steam !!!

    Literally guys.. I'm dieing here from the love of this card. THANKS DIRTYD!

    Ill check in over time, but I got to find drivers, apps and make a backup now while this install is still fresh.

    To everyone who posted.. Thanks for all your help. I can't express right now what all this means to me.
