    Building a new system and need advice

    Hello Everyone,

    I am building a computer for the first time and need some advice. I have been upgrading my old computer but it is pretty much at it's max. I only have a limited budget of around 600 dollars. I will be using my corsair 750 watt power supply as well as my geforce 550i video card for now.

    Here is what i was going to go with, but if you know of better stuff for the price, I would really appreciate the advice.

    Sorry that I can't post links yet. I would appreciate any advice/help.

    Thanks in advance!
