    you'll probably get a better response if you post in the stupid technology tavern, but I'd say that you might want to consider a better PSU. There's nothing worse than getting a weak PSU that blows 6 months down the road and takes the video card with it. (well, other than taking the video card AND the CPU with it)

    Long time PA reader but this is my first post!!

    My roommate wants me to build him a computer for $750. He already has a 120gig hd, mouse and keyboard but I need to get everything else. Here is what I am thinking any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Dell 22" Widescreen: $199 (After Coupon)

    Thanks in advance & Happy Thanksgiving - Hanns G 21.6" monitor for $140 (or $116 as the link says if you buy a coupon off the linked site)

    Cut that CPU down to an E7200; you'll save forty bucks and it'll overclock just as high.

    Get a 4870 instead of that GTXwhatever, or a 4850 if you really need to save money.

    And what's with the RAM? Fatalonety? Seriously? Get 4GB of whatever's cheap; RAM is RAM.

    Thanks for the link to the monitor is down right now but that is a great deal.

    Wouldn't the step down from a E8400 to a E7200 be a pretty drastic speed loss for $40?
    And the Fatality ram is retarded I know but I never have to look at it and its OCZ which is a great brand and its 50% off.
