I'm ready for a new rig! I will have a budget of up to $800...NO MORE!

I want to be able to play all COD titles and those silly flying games that Hogan has!

I will need everything except a tower, I should still be able to use the Antec. Unless the 8800GT and 500W power supply is re-useable. I would like the "cpu" guys to give me some options here as this will be my first "from scratch" build.

Any takers......

I currently have the Antec 900 case. Identical to the link below except I don't think I have the upgraded 3.0 USB though:

So...I think my MB took a crap. Now instead of just rebooting, I loose video 1st then I need to reboot. It also just randomly reboots. However, now when it reboots it doesn't perform the POST tests :( but the fans come on and I hear the HD spin up.

I don't have parts to swap out and there are no cpu parts stores here worth a damn. So I'll have to order online.

I will start with a new MB...with the specs above and utilizing the same parts what,is a comparable MB?

I haven't looked at computer parts in quite a while so I can't recommend anything in particular. You'll want to find a MB for your CPU, so it looks like you need a socket LGA 1155. Start with a search for that. Good luck!
