  1. I would have approached the build differently, working up from the cpu and video card, but any starting point is valid.

    You didn't give a budget. With unlimited funds, I'd get

    i7-930 processor

    SATA 6.0/USB 3.0 crossfire motherboard

    6GB DDR3 1600 MHz RAM

    2x Radeon HD 5870

    Solid State Disk (for system)

    2x 10krpm drives in RAID 0 for games & data

    Without running the numbers, you're looking at $2,000 or so


  2. We'll from that website my oppinion is this for a Awesome Gaming rig and middle class price:

    MB - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4444096&CatId=4296

    Sound Card - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3901279&Sku=C44-3390

    RAM - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4631346&Sku=C13-6084 (buy 2 of these packet for 8GB, remember for a 64-bit windows 7!

    GC - 2x http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5599121&Sku=P450-5772 (Crossfire them and they pwn 5850)

    CPU - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5692033&Sku=A79-1965 3,40GHz and really good for the price!, overclock it and comp will be a beast!


  3. Unless you plan to spend $2000 for the whole system, then the case and power supply you've selected are too expensive ($420), and unnecessary.

    Start thinking about what your budget is for the whole system, then you can focus on selecting parts that are an appropriate match for each other, and stay within that budget.
