So I am looking to upgrade from my 17" Dell 9300i Laptop (which I never carry anyways). To a desktop that is going to handle most any games, photoshop, and load quickly.
Going to run XP on it, because I despise Vista.
So I was planning on just building one (havent in 2+ years, boy have things changed.. alot). Just curious to see what you all think and if anyone knows of alternatives that are being released soon.. I havent been around computers in a bit and am just getting back into it. I think I did a good job, since it was the first time I have shopped for this stuff since Jr year in HS.. With work and school, I need something fast, reliable and fun.
Most all of these parts had 400+ reviews and 5 starts on NewEggs customer reviews.
So here are the specs on what I am looking to build. Please let me know if you notice any compatability issues:
