I'm building a new system. I'm fairly into gaming my only problem is at the moment my computer can't run any good games very well. Or any newer games,

I've already ordered my cpu its a Phenom II x4 940 Black Edition 3ghz.

I was wondering if people would suggest different parts for the rest, Preferably the same price range...

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-M85M-US2H mATX Motherboard
Memory: Team Dark 4GB PC8500 DDR2 1066 RAM Kit (2x2GB)
Gfx Card: Sapphire HD4850 1G DDR3 PCIe
Case: Thermaltake V9 Midi Tower
PSU: Corsair TX-650 Modular Power Supply

I currently run my screens at 1152x864 but am looking to get a widescreen later down the track.

first question what is your budget?

as for the parts you have listed

i would go with a standard ATX motherboard not a micro they are just better boards.

look at the Gigabyte 790X or 790FX both are good boards

i would go with corsair for the RAM just a personal favorite

4850s are great cards and sapphire is a good company excellent choice

cases as long as they fit your gear are just a personal thing. find one you like and stick with it. just know the pros and cons of a full Vs. a mid tower.

PSU: perfect choice.

overall a good a build just change the motherboard unless you are building a micro system don't get a micro board it will only limit what you can do with the computer
