Ram -

G.SKILL 4GB kit (2GB x 2) DDR2-800 (PC-6400) CL4-4-4-12 MEMORY RETAIL F2-6400CL4D-4GBPK - $209

here again paying too much

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231148

Hard Drive -

Seagate 150gb 10000RPM - $300

is this going to be enough for all your needs.

if it is then i would go with this.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136220

if it is not then go with this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148295

personally i would go with the 10000 rpm as the operating drive then have a 1 terabyte drive as the drive where you save all your games,etc

Video Card -id get this card it is nice and will handle pretty much every game out there on very good settings. however it is pretty big so make sure you have a big case.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127337

however if you plan on running sli in your rig then i would personally go for these two.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150267

however if you do plan on running any of these cards i have picked out for you i would recommend that you use a 1000watt power supply or 800,850 at the minimum.


:wink:good luck:wave:

Thanks for any help xD

The reason he thinks you're paying too much is that he didn't read the little disclaimer stating that the prices are in NZ dollars/

I am not aware of any online stores that ship internationally. Besides, you would be paying soooo much for shipping. You'd be better off going to a local electronics store and getting the best things your money can buy with the help and experience of a gamer friend/salesperson.

Good luck
