Get caviar black instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as px?Item=N82E16822136283

Video Card - MSI N9600GT-MD1G GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

I'd say a 9600gt is pretty weak, and a card such as a 9600gt does not need 1gb of memory.

So get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as px?Item=N82E16814102850

Power Supply - Antec TruePower Quattro TPQ-1000 1000W Continuous Power ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Woah woah woah, you do not need 1000w. Even if you want to be futureproof 1000 w is still overkill.

This baby should last you long: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as px?Item=N82E16817139010

Keyboard - RAZER Lycosa Black 104 Normal Keys USB Wired Standard Gaming Keyboard

RAM - Patriot Viper 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model PVT36G1600ELK

Motherboard - ASUS P6T WS PRO LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Core i7 / Xeon Intel Motherboard

Processor - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz LGA 775 Quad-Core Processor Model BX80562Q6600

Now the problem here is, a Q6600 won't work with the i7 motherboard. So do you want a Q6600 or something in the same catagory or do you wanna go 17?

Heatsink/Fan - ZEROtherm ZEN FZ120 120mm CPU Cooler

Get a mugen 2 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as px?Item=N82E16835185093&Tpk=mugen%202

Computer Case - Thermaltake M9 VI1000BWS Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

It's an okay case... But it will do

Dvd/Cd Drives - Sony Optiarc 24X DVD/CD Rewritable Drive Black SATA Model AD-7240S-0B, LG 22X DVD±R DVD Burner Black IDE Model GH22LP20 LightScribe Support

I realy need the feedback.

Sorry, Im just new to this stuff.
List-
I've updated it with the parts TSF and Matt recommended. I know I'm missing stuff, like fans, and such, but Im clueless.
CPU
Motherboard
Video Card- TSF, I'll take you up on that 4770 deal, if it's cheaper than NewEgg
Power Supply
Hardrive
Memory
There are 2 cases I'm now considering since Matt said the case I picked was unnecessary-
1.
2.

Any amount of money? Okay let's go.

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as px?Item=N82E16819103649

Alternatively you can get

a. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as px?Item=N82E16819103674&Tpk=955

b. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as px?Item=N82E16819103680

The first CPU I linked is a great one. It overclocks great, has 3 cores, etc.

The 2nd cpu has 4 cores, but it is more expensive by a decent amount, and runs hotter. Unless you want to shell out uneeded money don't get this.

The 3rd cpu has 2 cores, but it overclocks better than the first CPU.

I suggest the 720 BE.

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as px?Item=N82E16813128387

Does it all.

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as px?Item=N82E16811119197

Great case, great price

CPU cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as px?Item=N82E16835185093&Tpk=mugen%202

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as px?Item=N82E16820220314

Video card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as px?Item=N82E16814102848

If you ever want to upgrade in the future, just buy another one.

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as px?Item=N82E16817139010

It's modular. Modular PSU = you don't have a shitstorm of cables

HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as px?Item=N82E16822136284

Think thats it

Well there are a few factors do this:

Your budget

What you do on your computer

If you only game and do internet browsing and all that jazz, you should get the dual core or the tri core.

Alright I chose the tri-core and my total is $1,104.75 and this is including windows vista, CD Drives, HDMI Cables, and, some thermal compound. Thanks for the help hope when I get the parts I dont have to return anything lol.

One last question, what is overclocking and what does it do for my computer?

You gotta pirate your OS' like a man. Besides, Windows 7 is weeks away from being released and you want to pay for Vista? Wrong move and what's the HDMI cable for, if you're getting a monitor, it includes a cable for it 99% of the time. Which thermal paste did you take?

Thanks for the help hope when I get the parts I dont have to return anything lol.

If you're not sure, you shouldn't be pressing the checkout button, triple or even quadruple check everything. Your parents Visa is on the line.

This is a google question. Please refrain from asking questions that google can handle. It cuts down on the traffic.

The hard drive I wanted is out of stock, so I chose this.

What am I missing in all of this? So far my cost comes to $663.96($623.96 with rebates), that seems a bit low, so I know I'm missing something.

Drop the 8GB ram. I use 2GB and it's enough for what I do and 4GB should be more than enough for you. YOU DO NOT NEED 8GB. Besides if you are getting 8GB ram you need a 64 bit OS. Also using 4 sticks of ram causes more stress on the northbridge making overclocking a bit harder.

Also, GET THE MUGEN 2.
