Hey here's my first comp i am thinking of making..i already have a monitor, and can get my OS for free so here's the rest..

CASE-http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E16811208005

MB-http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E16813188026

Graphics-http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E16814130318

CPU-http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E16819115017

Memory-http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E16820231122

HD-http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E16822136074

Make the links clickable to make it more easy for us

EDIT: That case is so-so... I wouldn't trust the cheap power supply included in it. And if you're planning to SLI you'll definitely be short on power.

I'd spent a few extra bucks to get a cheap but quality case like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119077

and an inexpensive but dependable PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153052

If you don't plan on doing SLI, get a P35 or x38 board instead, they are more stable and overclock better usually. Something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131225

EDIT2: OMG what's going on with the prices in America? 8800GT are around $120 her in Canada!

Here's one that's already a bit cheaper (It's exactly the same card, just a different brand): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150252

You could swap the quad out for an e8400. It would save you around $20. Most games right now don't have a use for more than 2 cores, and the e8400 is ridiculously fast anyways.

Do you plan on going SLI in the future?

Since you are only using one vid card, i would recommend changing the mobo to a Gigabyte p35 DS3L. It can easily get a quad to 3.6ghz. A great budget board.

Yay! You linked to the EP35-DS3L. People keep linking to the P35-DS3L for $20 more!

It's the newer version of the board, but everyone searches for P35-DS3L & it doesn't come up.
