PowerColor Ax7850
Team Dark Series 8GB DDR3-1600

    take a look at this, it is a good build, besides that your build will work
  5. I already have a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate.
  6. So is that build better then my build?
  7. they will perform similar but its your decision on amd or intel
  8. So the 650 ti will preform like the 7850?

    the amd will do better in some, the nvidia will do better in some they are pretty much the same
  10. This is an all-gaming rig.

    i understand like one has higher graphics but lower clock rate and textures, i would go with the 7850 since its 2gb now that i look at it.
  12. I think I would rather stick with the Phenom seeing that it is a quad core and most games in the future will be utilizing the extra power of the quad core. Is there anything else I should add to my build?

  14. So if I ordered all these parts, and I had them all in front of me right now, I could build a computer and start running games?
