thanks for the advice. I agree, I could get a better graphics card, and yea the mouse and keyboard is alittle pricey. But why is that vista any better than the ultimate that I was going to get? why home basic? Well thanks for the post.:)

I had the same problem at one time with my old comp. It was so bad that the ground was rainbow colored. I upgraded my graphics card and it was fixed.

hello all. So I'm building my own computer for my first time. Some friends have helped me get the gist of how to build it. With like matching the sockets and stuff. I play fps games like CS:S and some other games, and I am getting vista because even though I heard some bad stories I know games will be requiring it later and I just want a new OS. Ok so here's my parts I am using in my comp. I am semi-confident that I've picked good components, i'd just like to hear from others. I am also planning on over-clocking some of these, and will be buying them all from newegg...

1)Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s ($69.99)

2)Graphics Card: GeForce 8600GTS 256MB PCI Express x16 OC HDCP ($219.99)

3)Motherboard: GIGABYTE (rev. 1.3) LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard ($99.99)

4)Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 Allendale 1.8GHz LGA 775 ($114.50)

5)RAM: G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 ($119.99)

6)Monitor: SAMSUNG 22" 2 ms (GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1(DC 3000:1)($294.99)

7)Power Supply: Rosewill 550W SLI Ready-ATX 12V V2.01 ($69.99)

8)Logitech G11 keyboard ($55.99)

9)Logitech G7 Wireless Laser Mouse ($69.99)

10)Microsoft Windows Vista 32-Bit Ultimate ($189.99)

...and a computer case

Any obvious flaws that I should know about, and please rate 1-10. thanks
