This sound good?

Okay.. I've changed my mind about 10 times so far. Now, before I buy. Tell me if this is a good rig or not.

Sadly, they took down the 3700/ultra-d combo. But the 8 hour video card sale looks good. So, I'm probably gunna order the card anyway before the time runs out. Unless someone tells me otherwise within like 20 minutes. These pieces would go with the rest of my current rig in my sig, but I need a new PSU. What PSU should I get? I won't be using SLI or OCing for a while, not until this rig is outdated and I need some more ummph.

 

Does this look good? I just wanted a budget pc, but I keep end up wanting to spend more. :

Good deal on the gfx card. Solid processor if you don't want to go dual core. A 3800+ X2 will cost you about $60 more. And you won't find a better MB, assuming you don't want/need SLI out of the box. Overall good price/performance.

 

See the PSU sticky for a range of models to fit your budget. And assuming you're a gamer (given the choice of gfx card), you'll also want to try to get to 2GB RAM at some point.

 

Good luck, and enjoy!

For a PSU you could try the new OCZs.....OCZ 600w Gamerxstream 129.99 shipped from Zipzoomfly.com. It is brand new and there are no reviews out yet, but with OCZs reputation I'm thinking it will be tops....mine arrives tomorrow. For the price it can't be beat. Alternatively, the OCZ 520 Powerstreams can be had for $110 after rebate if you look around.

I ended up getting Antec TRUEPOWERII TPII-550 550W for a PSU. It got perfect reviews on newegg, cheap, and was on the recommendation list. Thanks for your input!
