I'm have a bit of a dilemma, I have about two grand waiting to be spend on a custom machine. My first choice was to build a machine from a sites like Cyberpower etc etc and noticed it would be much cheaper to but my own supplies.I rather spend the money now on a real powerful machine now then just building a "decent" rig and saving the rest of the cash for future upgrades, and wont mind spending the whole budget.
Here is a list of the things i put together on Newegg of what im looking for.
Vista Home Premium
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz or E8400
Cool Master Stacker 830 Evolution RC-830--- Comes with 1000W PSU by CM
ASUS Striker II Formula LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i MOBO
ASUS 20X DVD
