The Big Build II

As some may recall it wasn't but a year or so ago I built my gaming PC. And while its still not complete yet (Waiting for the 8800GT to be in stock) that wont stop me from building another. But not for myself this time. No, the new waters of PC gaming has attracted my kid brother and he has worked all summer long to earn the money to build his own machine. So like last time the build project will be posted and recorded here.

GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS4 Rev


XTRAC Ripper Optical Mouse pad


OCZ GameXStream 700W Power Supply


Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 Conroe 3.0GHz


OCZ Platinum Revision 2 2GB


Western Digital 320GB 7200 RPM HardDrive


ASUS Black 20X DVD+R


20" Dell SP2008WFP LCD


EVGA 8800GT SuplerClocked 512MB

With the way things been going its been a good $1, 300. But thats figures consider he is building a system straight up. If he had a screen or something then you could take $300 off here and there. But he has nothing and since he saved up so much, he is buying some of the best parts around.

I really like the mouse pad, keyboard, video card, and monitor. That's basically the best system anyone could build right now. If you bought that from Dell it would cost $6,000.

@ Alucard.

Seriously tho I'd say watch out w/ Western Digital also. Listen to Con!
