ok so i trashed my old build and decided to wait a lil longer so i can get better parts so i opted for a vishera- 6300 over a 6100 and i got a msi 990fxa-GD80 and as well i already have a 700 watt thermaltake tr2 and a case from a long time ago i will be playing games like battlefield far cry metro 2033 crysis 3 at 720 p and im trying to keep the cost down as much as possible here is my build so far.

already have:

cpu:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

psu:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

case: full tower case from long ago forget the name of it

what im planning to get:

gpu:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

ram:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

hdd:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I may consider opting for a ssd now and get a 1tb drive at frys later for only 30$

Probably the hybrid, depending on how long after you get the HDD from buying the SSD- you won't be able to survive very long on 128gb ;)

I'd recommend to get the SSD now and a larger drive later, because getting a SSD later is annoying to transfer over data.

I do not like to recommend the Thermaltake TR2 power supply, they are not that reliable.

The video card can be found cheaper:
