AMD FX-8320 Vishera 3.5Ghz CPU, BIOSTAR AMD 970 MOBO, XFX Radeon 7850 1GB, Crucial 8GB MEM, Seagate 1TB HDD, 750W PSU, HEC ATX Mid Tower

Details: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?I...

Of course, I'd have to spend $100 more on an OS and $20 on a disk drive. But still, I think this looks like a pretty sweet offer.

What graphical settings do you think this system can play the newest games on?

Also, newegg does not promise compatibility of all parts, so if you could double check for me, that would be great.

It's actually a really good build for the money. I don't think you'd be able to do much better for the price.

I know. I'm scrambling here. Not sure If I'll be able to get it down to Ecuador. Supposed to have someone bringing in a container though.

It's not bad. I don't know much about Cougar PSU or BioSatr MoBo. Those are the only questions I'd have.

And if you OC, don't go crazy. The 8350 can do around 4.4-4.5 GHz on stock voltage without getting too hot or pulling really high current. I wouldn't go beyond that.

I don't really plan on overclocking. I'm not that technical. But if I decide to do it, I'll definitely do the research first.

Biostar make good budget motherboards. Cougar PSUs are generally okay.

Yeah, I've since checked out the reviews on the PSU that comes in the bundle. The reviews scare me. I might be better off building my own system with an 80 platinum certified PSU.

80+ platinum is a bit overkill unless you just want the extra efficiency. If you are looking for good PSUs, check this page out.

Don't let store review bother you. A good 95% of them are complete, utter BS. And study after study has shown that if you let anyone review products, you're ten times more likely to get a negative review than a positive review. Go to Jonny Guru and Hardware Secrets - if they say a product is good, it's good. If they say a product is crap, don't touch it with a ten foot pole.

Jonny Guru is pretty much THE authority on power supplies - they take 'em apart and analyze each unit piece by piece before deciding that it's good or not. That's something you don't get from a Newegg review.

Hardware Secrets reviews PSUs but also tons of other components and they go way more in depth than most other review sites go.
