Well my Bro is gonna upgrade soon and he asked me to choose parts for him. He already has a case, optix, and sound. Here's what I've chosen for him:
PSU
HDDx2
CPU
MOBO
RAM
VGA
Yea that's what I've got, what are your opinions? Anything to change?
His Budget is $910, the PC is basically a media center. No gaming going on so the graphics are basic.
Construction going on down here. Something new coming soon, I hope.

Get a 7600GT, the 7300GT is just a weak piece of shit. Other than that, looks good to me.

And Komet is right. A 7300GT cannot decode 1080p fast enough, a 7600 can. It's even a little sluggish at 720p.

Just for the future should he decide to get an HD monitor.

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Every time someone goes against Weiman's sig I feel like they should be bludgeoned for a few minutes in the head to feel the headache I feel when I realize someone really IS that dense.
