I should know Monday if I can finally get around to building my new computer. Bouncing around NewEgg, since even if you don't buy from them it still makes a great site to scout out your parts, I've come up with this first (and hopefully) final draft for my new computer. Going to have a standard DVD burning drive, eventually get a blu-ray burner. Screens are already taken care of, and I use a normal keyboard and a trackball mouse.... and any serious computer gamer knows a trackball mouse is the only choice. I've decided to post the new link along with the part name so you can look up specific tech details. Oh, I wouldn't even bother trying to convince me to go AMD over Intel because I will not be overclocking and need faster stock speed. 64-bit Windows 7 of course. Since the CPU is of a new series, I'd appreciate double checking to make sure I got compatibility right. Also any hints of equal quality but cheaper would help.
Oh... piece of advice that most people don't realize even after building computers for years. The listed wattage on a Power Supply is NEVER the actual Wattage of the power supply. You should always subtract 50-75 watts to get the actual wattage of the power supply, sometimes as much as 100watts!!! ALWAYS buy at least 100 watts over what you need, or you may find your video card or HD not working....
