  1. Woah, lots of feedback! Well, everyone, I already ordered everything (lol). There were some deals this weekend and I figured I'd get it over with. What changed: I went with the new Sandy Bridge Core i5 3.3ghz just to be up to date with the latest technology. Honsetly, I was not really aware of the lower price point for AMD CPUs, but I was recommended to go Intel by a friend who has a lot of building experience. I did opt to buy Windows, as the whole point of this machine is to game. I eventually decided to knock my budget up to $1000, going for the Geforce GTX 560 Ti. And yes, I am definitely buying a monitor soon, although there is no rush for me to do so. Strongly considering this one at the moment: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236117&cm_re=asus_23-_-24-236-117-_-Product And thank you for all the tips on building a computer. I've been in the case of this one a few times, so I know about static electricity and such. I think the biggest things I'll have to remember are cable management and just to take it slow and triple check things. EDIT: Some things I forgot. I decided to not go for the 1TB Caviar Black drive and save the $20. I justified this pretty easily, as I have two external hard drives in the house that are perfect for long time storage of movies, games, TV, etc. Buying the new burner was not a big deal for me either as it was only $20 this weekend. I have a reader and burner in this computer, but they are both pretty old. I'm pretty confident in the brands I chose as well. I mean, my PSU comes in a carrying pouch. How could it not be quality? I've heard the case from Cooler Master is very nice too, the only con being the instructions were obviously written by someone in China.
  2. http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=12614074 That's a tentative list of all the parts I'm looking at. Will probably fork over the $20 to get the 1TB Caviar Black. I'm open to suggestions about most anything as I have never attempted to build a computer before. Oh, and my budget is ~$900 after rebates. Omega.

    I had a family member using this computer over the holiday, and I opened up task manager and saw the process "iexplorer.exe" running. After realizing that this wasn't IE (took me a few minutes, lol), I downloaded the Anti-Malware Toolkit and followed the wiki. Avast picked iexplorer up right away and had me move it to the chest. Did a boot time scan by its recommendation, but I couldn't find any logs pertaining to what it found (?). Deleted iexplorer and noticed that it moved four system files from the system32 folder to the chest (?). I still haven't touched them. Anyway, did the rest of the stuff, nothing big found.
