    Hello TechGuy! I'd first like to say you raised my computer back from the dead from an evil virus, so thank you.

    Now I have some cash ($900-1200, the lower the better), I want to upgrade to a gaming computer but I wanted to build it myself. Here's what I want, and the question marks are, well, question marks. Yes, I will be overclocking, so please take that into account.)

    Please feel free to tell me if I should be using something different.

    CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 (Socket 775)

    Motherboard: ?

    Case: ?

    Power Supply: ?

    Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX 260 or Dual Visiontek ATI 4850

    RAM: 4 GB (What brand?)

    Hard Drive: 64GB Solid State (brand?)


    Thanks so much guys, I'd appreciate you answering my question marks, and any suggestions you might have for a first timer. I'm excited so hurry!
