Time for you to spend that extra bonus money on a really good pair of headphones! Or a sound system so you can use it on pc and your consoles both.

I own these speakers I bought them last year when they where $80. With a small adaptor I can use them on my video game systems for some nice sound.

With the extra money I think Ill get the better video card.

Woot another daring development happened today, my dad let me keep $250 of my graduation money along with paying for the psu, ram, and the HD. That means I have $500 on hand and need $300 more.

980-$750= $220 (Im adding in a sound card)

Ill be back guys, I just creamed my pants.

Something to hold me over till quad cores are reasonable and definitely a step up for my g/f's from her 533 mhz machine.

NoticeD there was no heatsink.... add this.

I dunno amish, but are you trying to just buy low end budget stuff or something? That whole setup would be a waste unless you plan to play every game from now on at low detail. Upgrading from that would be a price nightmare.

I gotta agree that setup is pretty weak. You can do alot better with over $500. Seriously though, don't buy that graphics card. I'd just pick up a used one on craigslist.

Tell you guys what.... you buy my new car and pay my bills and then we'll talk. I don't see how a 3.0 ghz with a dual core 2 GB of RAM and PCI-E 7300 GT is that bad of a deal.

Oh noes I won't be able to run soft shadows, or dynamic lighting on high pffffffffffft.

Spaz. We all pay bills, you're not the only one. But if you cant afford something which will let you play games on at least medium detail for the next 3-4 years then its not worth buying. Save up longer. A 7300GT wont be more awesome if youhave a 3gig or 4gig cpu. Each video card pretty much locks off and bottle necks itself so it doesnt matter if you have the greatest cpu in the entire world.

For example $800 can get you a pc that will be suped. If you dont have the money then wait till the end of the year or whenever. If you're gonna do something, do it right. Otherwise buy a 360.
