My totally tubular new computer (that I might purchase, specs for review))
 
Well, I was supposed to have bought this months ago, but have only now gotten around to it. I have put together a set of specs for the core components of the machine I am going to put together. This is actually the first computer I will have built.

I would appreciate feedback on the core components. How did I do?

<ul>[*]http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...M-965PS3-E6600Gigabyte 965P-S3 Intel Socket 775 ATX Motherboard and an Intel Pentium Core 2 Duo E6600 2.40GHz OEM Processor</a> $485.99[*]http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&sku=P450-7870XFX GeForce 7600 GT XXX Edition / 256MB GDDR3 / SLI / PCI Express / Dual DVI / HDTV / Video Card</a> $149.99
[*]http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&sku=O261-8032OCZ Dual Channel XTC 2048MB PC5400 DDR2 667MHz Gamer Memory (2 x 1024MB)</a> $194.99[/list]
Total damage: $830.97

I don't really follow hardware too much, so I really wouldn't be able to tell if I was being ripped off or not. What do you think?

That'll be a really nice rig, and the prices seem pretty good. Double check all components on newegg before you buy, tho'. You might be able to save even more.

i don't feel like paying a premium for gamer memory is really worth it
but the rest looks good
especially the 7600GT XXX Edition
i heard you get a free pass to milfhunter with that <img src=smilies/laff.gif><img src=smilies/laff.gif><img src=smilies/laff.gif><img src=smilies/laff.gif><img src=smilies/laff.gif><img src=smilies/laff.gif><img src=smilies/laff.gif><img src=smilies/laff.gif><img src=smilies/laff.gif>

2. Overclock that bitch to 4GHz
3. ????

Don't buy anything from TigerDirect. They have poor customer service, and their rebates are bad as well. Check directcanada.com (free shipping on orders over $150), ncix.com (chance to get an open box item, but DirectCanada is usually cheaper anyway) and pricenetwork.ca (you can check for prices on hardware to help with price matching). My vote goes to directcanada.com
