    I have spent 2 months trying to find the right computer to replace my old one. I have posted other old threads, but that didn't help much. So heres the list:
    CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819103194
    Power Supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817182030
    Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16822136012
    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820134046
    CD/DVD Burner: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16827151154
    Graphics Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814130312
    Computer Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16811146025

    Sound Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16829102002
    Operating System: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...6837116193#spec
    Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813131011
    Speakers: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16836121126

    As you can see, im going with AMD, not Intel. And i have a question, can the CD/DVD Burner read CD's and DVD's? And if you have a better computer case, please tell me. Im not that satisfied with the case i choose. Not even sure il go with that.

    Throw away the AMD CPU and mobo, AMD won't do you anything good these days since games and other applications runs faster with Intel Core Duo 2.

    I've got that case. [​IMG]

    Not too bad, the screwless stuff work pretty well.

    Thanks guys. And the reason why i choose the case is cause its "screw less". Im not going into MAJOR gaming, like Crysis or anything like that. Just simple games like CS or something. And can someone recommend me a CPU and a Mobo that goes with it?(like if its a Intel CPU, give me a Intel Mobo.)

    The Phenom 9500 isn't bad for $180, if you want AMD.

    Funny enough, I had never really seen a case with a screwless rear panel, so I broke two of them off! Once I figured out how it worked, I was just kicking myself! Of course, that was for my graphics card so I just put a screw in. That baby won't be moving for a long ass time so I'm not bothered in the least.

    What can I say? I always bought cheap cases in the past.

    IMO you should ditch the raptor drive and go with this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16822148288
    ive read that they perform just as well as the raptors and are cheaper and more memory
    try this for ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820146565 since it is good ram
    and ditch the rosewill psu and go with this corsair one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817139004
    sure it might cost you a bit more but the performance will make up for it and you have a better chance of the psu lasting a whole lot longer [​IMG] [​IMG]
