I'm considering it might be time to build my first computer from scratch since I've got my Windows 7 copy pre-ordered and it might nice to have a new system to use it with.

Anyway, you can see how much I might have to spend in the title, but thankfully I can re-use quite a bit of stuff from my current system.

Things I can salvage are my new Corsair TX650 PSU, XFX4870 1Gb, Blue-Ray and DVD-RW drives, and I have a 750Gb Hitachi Deskstar 7200rpm 32Mb cache which I would probably still use unless you guys think there's something worth the upgrade. I'm good for mouse, keyboard and have a Dell 24" HD monitor.

Basically I'll be needing a case and cooling, motherboard, processor and RAM. I like to be able to play most modern games, but no need for all settings maxed.

Thanks in advance
