More overclocking again...

To the OP I recommend you do not try overclocking especially if you are always short of cash. Overclocked items have a tendency to die at unfortunate times.

As for the guys price of $1499. Something aint right, the CPU alone is a 1/3 that price.


Anyways, probably you want to look at this

Quad core CPU @ 3.0 Ghz per core. Intel CPU's will cost you more.

A motherboard for your CPU. Make sure it is the same socket type.

You don't need 8GB Ram if you don't want something extravagant, 4GB will do fine. But make sure its branded ram and also make sure it is a Speed that is acceptable by the motherboard without overclocking the motherboard for faster speeds.

Buy a 60 or 80GB SSD (Solid State Drive) for your Windows installation and subsequent program files.

Get a separate SATA II HDD with whatever amount you feel is best, 500GB upwards. Use this for installing your games.

At least a Geforce 460 1GB GPU.

If you can find one reasonably prices get a BD-ROM/RW drive that can burn Blu-ray discs, it may come in handy later for big backups. Plus the drive also reads other media types.

I am guessing you will need a monitor also, unless your TV if you have one has a HDMI slot then you can use your PC on it through that slot to get either 1080i/p or the max resolution your TV allows.

Alienware is part of your built PC? Alienware is part of pre-built PC and it means you don't build on your own, except for upgrades unless you got other PC desktop.

I prefer to build a PC that I order the parts and case from newegg and they are super cheap. You can build a decent PC desktop for $1,000.
