I am a gamer, but with my current setup i cannot do much other that CS1.6 at 40fps and source crashes my computer. I am looking to build a computer that i can possibly expand to other games, and play those that i have. I don't LAN so the weight of the computer, i know its gonna be heavy, is not much of an issue. I may overclock in the future but not for at least a few months. I currently have a 500GB Western Digital External drive that i am going to keep that is why there is no second (slave) hard drive and I already have a mouse. Any other suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.

get a samsung with a 2ms response time, like the 2253bw, spend ~$5 more for a G15, and dont get a raptor, get a WD 750GB.

You can find the PSU cheaper here:

Also don't get a 790i mobo if you won't be doing SLI in the future.

Ya i plan on buying my PSU from buy.com; my case and processor from Microcenter; and SLI in the future when price drops a little bit on the GPU. The 620 should be enough power right? even if i SLI later.

I am trying to stay around (preferably under) $2000. right now my newegg list is at $1900 so im actually expecting to be a little under that right now. like i said before, i am looking to save a little to upgrade in the next 6 months to a year when prices drop a little.

I would recommend getting the 750TX, or a 750 watt power supply from PC P&C, if you are going to be SLI'ing.
