    New Goal

    Running dual 21" Samsung LED LCD Monitors

    something that will run those good, good memory, GOOD quality, $750 or under

    that needs to include everything including the case (cable management on that possibly?)

    Thanks, that's my official budget, quality speed, memory, and dual monitor support for 750 :)

    Sorry for taking so long. I've tried doing my own wishlists/parts list, and I can't get under top brands, and spending top dollar :(

    Don't be sorry man, you've honestly helped alot!

    Just hoping to get a build before Friday

    Up to $750, has to run dual 21.5" LED LCD monitors with quality

    Needs to be cooled fine, have good memory, and good speed.

    Will mainly be playing poker on dual monitors while everyday computing. Lots of memory for lots of pictures which I'll be doing photography. Good graphics, speed and memory are my goals (must also include OS)

    I'll keep trying but appreciate anyones help :)

    What do you mean? I will not be building this myself, will have this genius kid who builds computers build it.

    But what do you mean, is this a high quality computer? I have around $50 to spare and upgrade...but I wanna buy this as soon as I know it's good

    also someone wanna recommend a power supply and video card that would go well (if this is a good build, and not too overly expensive)...thanks!

    edit: official list with everything

    Comes to $892.90

    Urgh! I have tried everything, looking at the deals, trying to get a case that will fit everything, keeping everything cooled correctly, keeping speed, good graphics, good memory (at least 4 gb with good timing) all while trying to keep it under $800 (and possibly adding an sdd) and I just can't do it :(

    You should be fine. You will want to upgrade the CPU cooler if you OC, Though.

    GTX 460 should be fine.

    I chose the CAS 9 Ripjaws because it is so cheap.

    But yeah, I think you are good to go.

    What do we think of the build (I'm hoping some of the prices come down on some stuff, but here's the build (I added an sdd cause I want one now)

    All in one reader http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820816001

    Build is $915.89...what do we think? Like I said hoping it goes down when I wake up. If not oh well

    Need this to hold thousands of pictures
    run dual monitors no problem (when I decide to)
    and just be fast in general, while staying cool and having the memory

    thoughts?

    Changed it to this case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146062

    and took off the sdd

    (can I add the sdd later, and if I do what do I need to do to get it to work)

    Also will my build without the sdd be fast and hold thousands of pictures etc?

    Build is now $800.90

    like I said needs to hold LOTS and LOTS of pictures

    is this build overkill? should I add ONE extra fan? will I have enough usbs?

    Thanks everyone
