  1. Try? Didn't the first one go so well?

    Your components are OK for a entry level gamer if that is what you are striving for. If you don't need wireless internet, you can do without the adapter. The MB comes with a LAN adapter for Ethernet. But if you need wireless, you might want to consider an adapter that has an antenna extension in case you need to position the antenna in a stronger signal path. EX:
  2. Ok, and yes, I was trying to keep it close to 500, and I felt I did a decent job, I will redo the wireless adapter later, what suggestions do you have for it?
  3. Just to pay heed to the issues/compatibilities that PCPARTPICKER list below. i.e. the memory.

    Other than that, I don't know what else you could improve on for $500.
    ...Unless you plan on upgrading your graphic card in the future, you sure don't need a 700W PSU. You could drop to a 400W for that card, or a 500W for a bit bigger card, and then up your processor choice a bit.
  4. Ok, thank you

  6. ok, thank you, I like that one, but according to the benchmarks on that website, the intel pentium is stronger than that processor and cheaper? but is taht one actually better, or would the 965 black be better?
  7. 965 would not be any better than piledriver core
    The phenom cores were 15-20% behind the bulldozer cpus and
    bulldozer cores are 15-20% behind piledrivers

    So a total of 30-40% better performance than phenom

    750k has 30-40% more perfrmance than phenom
  8. so stick with the phenom, that is the best?
