Nice picks. I always liked building my own to my specs as well. For abt $1000 you got a first rate rig to be proud of (just have to build it)

Good luck with the build

Look threw it, it looks like a very nice build and with those prices you cant complain. I love building my own rigs but now that I travel a lot I cant build my own laptop only customize it a bit here and there . Oh well the down falls of trying to make money to spend LOL.

I wish you luck and fun on building your first rig let us know how it goes.

Hi DarkNovaGundam......


i'd shuffle a few parts around....

CPU..... E8400

MOBO....MSI P45

PSU...... PCP&C 610W & then buy a separate case

i think this may cost a little more, but its a better build...... IMO

I'll take a look at those parts, I need to choose a different Motherboard anyways as the one I chose doesn't support the GFX card O.O

Thanks for helping!
