    I don't want to moan at you here, I can understand you might not keep up with technology and stuff and know what's best for you to choose in your budget and that but... At least choose your own case. C'mon, that's easy.

    Hi, I am wanting a computer. $750. Please spend half an hour looking up links for parts that match my budget and the limited description I gave of what I want...

    That's how these threads sound.

    You pretty much have it all there,

    Case
    PSU
    CPU
    4gig of RAM
    P45
    Good video card
    500gig+ HDD

    Now, this is the tricky part,

    Go look up some reviews, some information, try to find out what you want, because, while we can spoonfeed you links, you'll be better equipped to build, troubleshoot and manage your hardware if you know why you picked certain hardware.

    Look at Toms Hardware, Guru3d, Anandtech, and any affiliates those sites recommend, and you should find all the information you need.

    Sorry, I didn't mean that I wanted you guys to do all the work. I have have done some research I was just hoping you guys could lead me to the right path. I'll do some more research, find some links and ask you guys about your opinions and suggestions. Thank you for the help

    It's all good. Once you get some exact parts in mind, post em up and we'll tell you what we think of them. XD

    First what you want to do is go to Home Depot, find a nice big area and go to sleep.
