[First Build] $600 Please Help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
As the title says. I already have a hard drive and optical drive. This computer will be used for gaming at 1680x1050. If you could go even lower that'd be great.

Thanks everybody.

If you are gaming, go with a 8800GT 512 for ~ $200 on the egg; now you got $400 for the rest

For gaming at 16x10, you need that 8800GT. I would cut some from the processor (E2200 FTW!) and use it on the GPU.

Not really according to the benchmarks I've seen the 9600gt is only about 5-10% slower and plays all the popular games out there above 60fps at 1600x1200.
