spboyd1, do you have a microcenter store in your area?

edit: also does you budget include a monitor?

i have a acer 24" that is running fine eric93se and to dizzy you gave me info on a zotzg 460 and a seasonic 650w that i just purchased so what i am thinking is to use them in the new build the xp410 i have was running fine until about i month ago only when playing games did i see a problem now i tried the new vid card and power supply in my xp410 and it really didn’t change the problem i am thinking that it may be the memory ram which is old and one or more of the sticks my be going up so thats why i thought it might be good two build a new system the dell warrenty on the dell is good till 2012 but i got the memory from newegg so i don’t need a psu og vid card since i can use the new ones you guys just told me about

So you have healthy budget. For the case here are a few choices all should do nicely.

COOLER MASTER Storm Scout
Rosewill ARMOR Gaming ATX Mid Tower
COOLER MASTER HAF 922

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-P55-USB3 LGA 1156 Intel P55 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
CPU: Intel Core i5-760 Lynnfield 2.8GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core
RAM: A-DATA 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
DVD burner: LITE-ON 24X DVD Writer Black SATA Model iHAS424-98
Card reader: Rosewill RCR-IC002 74-in-1 USB 2.0 3.5" Internal Card Reader

That brings you to just about $500. Now if you want we can pick faster memory and a better cpu cooler if you plan to tweak and OC you system.

So the cases I posted above are all very cool. Do you intend to run two video cards? What do you mean by double audio?


#9

Just exclude PSU and video card in the posts above then…
You might want to consider MSI’s GD65 motherboard if you want to overclock

the virtual dj that i have said something about having two audios to mix with i haven’t tried it yet because it said sometnig about two audio cards i used to be one of the best around when it came to mixing in the DC and surrounding states and i just thought the way computers change it might be good to have a slot for the future with the xtra video card


#11

also forgot to say that i only have a windows xp op disc so i guess i will need all the drivers and probably a new os i don’t know so i guess i need info on that too

Don’t know if you have a preference on CPU’s if you want the most bang for your buck you could get the best AMD CPU:

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition

ASUS M4N98TD EVO AM3 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI ATX AMD Motherboard

ASUS Xonar DS 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Audio Card

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ x 2 gives you 8 gigs

COOLER MASTER HAF 932 RC-932-KKN1-GP Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case.

Total price of $650.63 all from Newegg.

You get a great case that will help to keep anything cool you want to put in it, a motherboard that can handle another graphics card if you want to later go SLI, a great sound card that will work with your BR drive or whatever you want, fast and great AMD compatible ram.

Buy from Newegg and buy warranties through Squaretrade anything breaks you get $$ back or replacement.

You can use XP if you want, a lot of people are switching over to windows 7. You should check the DJ software and see if the latest version is windows 7 compatible.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

You probably want 32-bit (since I highly doubt its a native 64-bit app) and ASIO supported sound card. Don’t touch nForce-chipsets…
