Well, since i have pretty much no knowledge on how to build one, i've come to u pbf nerds for some help :naughty. I pretty much clicked around on newegg for a good 2 hours and came up w/ this. My goal is to keep it under say $800 tops for all the main components, minus the monitor.

the case:http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProductDesc.asp?description=11-138-042&depa=0
an ASUS motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=13-131-513&depa=0
video, ATI, think this should be big enough and uptodate to get me high 30s in most games: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProductDesc.asp?description=14-102-331&depa=0
AMD 64bit: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProductDesc.asp?description=19-103-484&depa=0
tips for me?

I'm waiting for all the links to load, but I can tell ou one thing - if you need help with the build you can IM me pretty much anytime. I've done this more than 99% of the people on here.

Don't go with Asus.
3 Seperate Mainboards by Asus from 3 different customers have MELTED/Shorted out/Stopped working completely.
Also, you might want to go with a board with at least one PCI Express slot. In the future, the'll come in quite handy.

Isn't the installation gunna be hard? All those chips and wires everywhere? You know what your doing? If I could learn about it then i'd be buying parts and making my own and selling them.
It's not hard at all if you have half a brain. So for half of this forum it's impossible.

^ exactly proph3t. asus mobo's are fine, they just aren't one of my personal favorites, i'm an msi fan. you guys seen the fatality mobo? omfg its the pimpness!

the 939 is the socket that you want to go for, the older 754 i think it is is getting phased out in favor of the 939's. whats really pimp is intel's new setup where the cpu is pinless.

That Fatal1ty board is ****ING EXPENSIVE, though... True, it is pimp, but the price tag reflects that.
