The parts found are on this site, found on newegg.com.. here's the website http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=12672789
So if anyone whose more experienced, please comment. THANKS!
Looks like my spare rig ha. Except I have a better gfx card in it.
But I'm pretty sure you can find better than that. If you are going to go AMD wait until next week when the FX processors come out. Are you going to OC? If you do then you will need the cooler. If you don't then I wouldn't bother with it.
My recommendations (All my prices are from Newegg):
PSU: Corsair TX650 - $65 after rebate
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1066 240-Pin $45
CPU: Wait for FX (next week maybe) $200
GPU: PowerColor 2GB Radeon HD 6950 $255 after rebate
MOBO: ASRock 880G PRO3 AM3+ $90
HDD: Yours is fine $65
CD/DVD: Yours is fine $21
Monitor: I see the price for yours as $119
?Cooler?: Hyper 212+ $26
Case: LIAN LI Lancool PC-K58 $70
Total: Right around $1k after shipping.
