Need system suggestions/barebones

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I need some suggestions on a barebones system (or I can build).

Don't care what case looks like budget around $500-$600
Need CPU/GPU/MB/RAM/HDD/PSU-CASE

Like to have fastest processor I can get in my price range. I was looking at barebones on newegg, but don't really know what's a good deal. Help.

Nope, mostly just internet and some video editing using Pinnacle Studio.

Need dual monitor support w/ Nvidia chipset...

If it's not out of the budget, would be nice to be quad core capable.

Sounds good to me. I will order all the stuff tomorrow, most likely.

One final question. Do you think the E6600 is worth the extra money, or will I really notice a difference?

if you plan on even light gaming substitute the hd to 160 and the 7300 to a 7600
