    I play Counter-Strike: Source.
    Alright, it's finally been confirmed that I can get a new computer. This is what I have so far:


    Case:
    Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

    Motherboard:
    ASUS P5B Deluxe LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

    Video Card:
    BFG Tech BFGR88320GTSOCE GeForce 8800GTS 320MB

    Processor:
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe 2.66GHz

    Memory:
    Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2

    Hard Drive: 2x
    Western Digital Raptor WD360ADFD 36GB 10,000 RPM 16MB


    I have a Sound Card, Headphones, Mousepad, Mouse, Monitor. Anything I am missing? Anything you think needs to be upgraded? And I'm pretty sure I can just install my current CD/DVD drives into the new pc.

    I know a need a power supply.

    I have never built a computer before, take that in mind in terms of supplies. Cords / Wires?

    Total: $1,256.92

    Hi rfzbaker
    Get the best PSU you can afford.read your asus Mobo book a few times before you start.
    and follow it word for word and double check everything you do .
    And when you finaly switch on and hear the beep (dont forget to buy a little speaker to fit to the mobo,I dont think asus builds them in.)and the asus logo comes up on your monitor You will wonder why you have not built one before.
    Good luck with your new PC
