Memebag builds a PC Goobertron, my 6 year old desktop, suffered a hard drive failure a few weeks ago. She will not boot. I've extracted the data I need from her and believe it is time to move on, building a newer, sweeter desktop inside her old body. I've been shopping around and I think I've found a sweet spot for price/performance with these: CPU: Intel Core i5 760 Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD4P RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) System drive: Intel 80 GB X25M Mainstream SATA II Solid-State Drive (SSD) Data drive: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Video: XFX HD-485X-ZDFC Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 DVD: ASUS DRW-24B1ST OS: Windows 7 Premium I've got a giant power supply and SATA DVD burner in Goobertron that I can re-use. Buying from Amazon and Newegg, the cost will be a little over $1,100. I've looked all over for pre-built systems that might be a better deal, but so far nothing comes close. Now I just need to think of a new name. Boogertron? Troobergon? Uranus?
