Specs: Windows XP
Hell everyone I need help. Iol I have $1600 to
spend on a New PC (preferably a Gaming
one), I just need you all opinion on what to
buy. All I want is a Gaming PC that's going to
play everything without the graphics skipping. I
want a Blue Ray player also. What I have done
so far.... I checked out IBUYPOWER.COM
and customized a PC That fits my Budget, the
problem is I'm a novice and I bet I added things
to the list that isn't needed. If I could cut cost
to about $1200 it will be much needed
assistance. I'm looking @:

NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT 1 GB 16x PCI-
Express Video

Completely overpaid.

I could've built that same system for $300 less.

And you REALLY don't need a 800w PSU.
