Default Building a Computer - Shopping List Help

I'm looking to build a new computer and was wondering where I could get the best deals. I only need about a 60 GB hard drive and 1G memory. It will be mostly to play poker. Any advice on everything I need to buy would be appreciated.

You can get better deals on prebuilt systems, but if you're building it yourself newegg can't be beat.

I got a great deal on a 160GB Maxtor HDD there, but everything else I bought from newegg.

Beavis is correct that their are better deals out there. Newegg has built their business on great customer service, anybody who has ever had to return defective electronics knows what a pita it can be.

Thanks for the help guys. Is there a good time to wait for deals or should I just go ahead and buy all the necessary parts?

Prices are always going down. If you need it now, get it. If not, wait.

BTW, memory is cheap. Get 2 Gigs.

And don't get hung up on only needing a 60gb (or whatever) size hard drive. You can frequently find higher capacity drives on sale or w/ rebates that make them cheaper or equal in price to much smaller capacity drives.
