New to building. Seeking advice on parts/components?
Ok, so I'm looking for a cheap build. I've searched some threads around here and most of the ones that relate to what I'm looking for have either stopped, or the parts/tech isn't available anymore or is outdated.
One of the most recent cheap builds I've seen is here: http://www.hackint0sh.org/f133/214222.htm
But I'd like to change a couple things about it...that's where you come in =)
First, I'm wondering if there's a Case/Power Supply combo out there that would be cheaper than buying them separately?
Second, I need a Video Card that is equal to or better than: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 or ATI Radeon HD 3850 and I'm not sure if that guy's is.
Lastly, I'll need a CD/DVD drive.
So any suggestions for those 3 items in combination with the rest of the stuff from that post?
P.S. I have a friend who will help me actually build the computer, I just have to buy the parts first.
