Okay so, this will be my first diy computer and I wanted something that could last me for a while and be upgradeable in the future.
So far I have:
Asus p5e3 premium
intel core 2 quad 6600
OCZ DDR3 1333mHz 4x1gb
thermaltake armor case
Looking for advice on graphics card. My budget leaves about $270. Thanks for the help and if you have any suggestions for different items that I have already chosen please let me know.
I believe DDR3 will be the new standard so that is why I went with the RAM and motherboard; however, I am having doubts about DDR3.
My budget is 1200-1300 if that helps any.
I also was looking into a 64bit system. not sure if I want to go to vista or stay with xp. I have 32bit xp now and it works great.
I dont believe that the asus motherboard has HDMI compatibility and I would really like that. If you have any other suggestions on a motherboard that I could use for top end gaming and as a media center let me know.
