Ok so it's time for me to make a new desktop and i need ideas on parts to buy including case, processor, mb, vid card, and pwr supply. If anyone could throw some stuff out there for me that would be awesome and oh yea i dont know everything about comps. Price isnt really an issue but larger the price more time i would have to wait to have it.

we need to move this to the support section, then we'll get right on it.

we will need some iformation from you first:

-budget
- what games are you going to be playing
-what is the airspeed velocity of an unlaiden swallow?

Adding on to y0y0,

Do you have any parts which you have already which can be used in this build?

What exactly do you want it for? Gaming, work etc.

First... is it an African, or European swallow?

Secondly, [MENTION=440]Matchaos[/MENTION] if you give us a specific amount of money, say how much time you want to actually take to build it and how much money you would have at that time, it would help us get you parts. As things like VC's can run about $100 or $400 depending on how new they are. Also, if you are going to be playing the more intensive games like BF3, Skyrim, etc. If it's just like LoL and the like, then we won't need to get as powerful of products for you, and that will save you some money.

Anyway, let us know these things, and we'll get on your build! Also, what kind of case do you want? Micro, mid-tower, or full case? options options options. That's what we do here. Take what YOU want and try and make the perfect setup for you. All for a small fee :D ok not really any fee, but it's fun to say.

Wait what? I was always under the impression we charged 10% of the cost of the final build...

I know you said that money wasn't an issue, but it's a lot easier to spec out a system when you know what you have to spend. If you are going into this without anything carrying over from your current system, and want this to mainly be a gaming machine with graphical capabilities in the medium+ range, then $1200-$1500 is an easy target. This would cover:

case -- $70-120 (lot of great cases in this range)
CPU -- $100-150 (AMD quad core) / $150-200 (Intel quad core) -- both are great for gaming, with the Intel procs being faster overall)
motherboard -- $80-130 (don't need to spend more than $100 if you aren't an aspiring overclocker)
video card -- $200-300 (this is where you should spend the big money = most bang for your buck)
power supply -- $80-200 (beefier PSU means you can add another graphics card later, after the prices drop)
memory -- $50 (that gets you 2x 4GB = 8GB of RAM)
hard drive -- $100 (that gets you about 1TB of storage)
SSD -- $100 (this gets you a 120GB solid state drive for your operating system + a few apps/games -- makes everything much faster)
LCD -- $150 (this gets you a nice 23"@1080p resolution)
keyboard -- $15-80 (depends on how fancy you want to get)
mouse -- $15-80 (depends on how fancy you want to get)
operating system -- $100 (gets you an OEM copy of Win7 Home Premium 64bit)

That's $1460 at the extreme upper-end. You can usually find free shipping on all of that (if you look hard enough), and there is plenty of money to be saved if you go the AMD route, and don't need a fancy mouse/keyboard. Even more if you have your own copy of Windows.

Should be getting it in his email box (thread subscription is default in the forum) -- but a good idea, regardless. We'll just see if he responds back, and go from there ;)
