welcome to the fourms

3200+ venice 939 $177
Dfi LanParty SLi motherboard $132
OCZ Gold BH5 memmory $84
XFX 6600GT PCIe $129
oh, and get you case from www.gearxs.com (free ship)

That should get you started, upgrades for the future should include, matching that stick of memory, and another 6600GT

Good choices except swap out the motherboard. He doesn't need SLI and he doesn't have the knowledge to work with a DFI. I brought this guy over from a video game forum because he wants to upgrade, but has no idea what to buy and isn't comfortable assembling his own. I'm thinking he can buy the parts and then have a local shop slap it together. I suggest this motherboard over the DFI. It's not only easier for a beginner, but it'll shave $50 bucks off the price.

Thanks, looks like good stuff for a good price. One quick question, iv installed cd drives, hard drives, and ram before. Is installing a motherboard and processor a difficult process?

No, but it can be frustrating if you expect to do it in 20 minutes. If you take your time and ask questions here, you'll find that it's not nearly as difficult as you think it is. Also, after you've done it once, you'll never buy a prebuilt again. However, tuning the BIOS on a DFI takes computer knowledge and that's why I suggested to swap it out. There are a lot of settings that must be adjusted and there is no clear cut answer as to the settings. It takes "tuning". That motherboard is geared towards overclockers and computer hobbyists and is not a good choice for a first build IMO.

yes, good thinking those DFI's can be a PITA expecially if it is your 1st, then he could probably dump the leftovers into the gfx card (6800GS) or save up for a 3700+ Sandy..
