I'm looking at building a new PC for gaming!
Here is what I am thinking for now:
AMD Bulldozer FX-8130 CPU. It's not out yet, but it should be within the next 2 months. It looks like this particular beast is going to be retailed around $200 to $300 US. If it gets delayed then I will go with the i5-2400 Sandy Bridge.
Ram and Motherboard are going to have to wait until we see just what works best with the Bulldozer CPU.
Got a couple power supplies lined up, a Corsair from John Wayne for $60. If it's not in good condition I'll beat him up and get a Cooler Master SPG.
And for the chassis, cyber linked me to this one. Looks good, good price, good size.
My graphics card is going to be the Radeon HD 5850.
So, most of what I have lined up has been what people have already sent me. I'm pretty comfortable with the actual building process, I just don't know much about the components themselves.
