Re: Build needs help!

Well first thig I will say is skip the raptor hard drive. Total waste of money. 170$ for only 150 gigs of storage, thats more then a dollar a gig. Plus you will never notice the speed difference between a 10000 and a 7200 rpm drive. Just a get a regular sata drive.

now as for the rest of your parts.

vga 190

power supply 110

Thats 479$

Now if you skip that western digital raptor wich you should , you will more money for a better case which a rig like this will need. I recommend the thermaltake armor or antec 900
