Thanks for the reply.
The monitor I'd like to use is the Sony 24"3D monitor. I've read it will not work with 3D on the PC but that's ok.
If you think the psu is overkill can you suggest something that would be a better fit? I got it for $90 in BB credit but I can return it for Amazon credit if there's something better for my needs and would free up funds.
For OS ill probably get Windows 7 64 bit, if I already have a registered version on my laptop can I just transfer my license or do I need to plan on repurchasing?
I've never built or had any experience with gaming computers so I can't say for sure if ill try to OC. If its pretty simple and seems worth it I would be interested in trying.
yes, this is going to used just about exclusively for gaming. I may put a Blu ray drive instead of a DVD drive to use to watch movies on as well, but that would be the only other use.
Again, thanks for your time and help
