Building a computer... need help.

by Waddlegam / July 26, 2009 6:47 PM PDT

Okay so I am putting together a computer that I hope will be a very powerful gaming computer. I threw together some stuff on and I was wondering to see if anyone could check to see if they would all work together and if it would actually be a good gaming computer. Here are the items I was thinking...

Cd Drive:


Graphics Card:
Would it be worth it to get the more expensive card? I plan on playing very many high end video games on this computer.

Memory: I was thinking but I am not sure if it would be needed, what do you guys think. If not how does look?


Hard Drive:


Your help is appreciated in advance.
