So I've been looking to build my own desktop for a while now (this is not the first time I've posted on these forums about this). I would be using this for gaming, so I'm trying to make it budget awesome. I won't be overclocking it since I'm new to this and don't want to fry anything, but I was thinking of trying SLI sometime in the future. And by budget I mean around $1,000. Still a good chunk o'cash, but I only get a new computer in direst circumstances, so when I do I treat myself a bit. Anyway.
Below is what I've got right now. I'm not married to any of them (except I want to use a GeForce card; doesn't have to be a 460 though, but I thought the 460 would work well for SLI), so recommendations are more than welcome especially in regards to the motherboard. I haven't decided on a sound card, hard drive, or an optical drive, but i threw in a few that I was looking at. I didn't include a case at all because I have no idea what would be good. So again, if anyone has anything to say on the matter please please please give me a recommendation.
So anything anyone has to say about any of this would be excellent. And if there are compatibility issues that I overlooked deffinitely say something, please. I've never built my own computer before, so I'm truly a newb.
