I CURRENTLY have this for a list but I dunno if I should go for the Intel or the AMD build... and ya... heres my AMD one I currently don't have an Intel one.. so.. could sum1 look at it and give me suggestions or whatever edits you think I should do? it's currently under 850 I dont need to buy a monitor or keyboard and etc. And I'm trying to be able to play "Crysis"
someone please help me get an item number for a good cheap power supply for the case and everything. Also I can't tell whether or not I should get the case WITH the power Supply or... a case without powersupply so I could just buy my own 600Watt PS instead of the 500w
heres the two cases I'm looking at

Here's the list of supplies I'm going to try buying but could someone check it ll out and tell me if I should buy all this? I'm trying to get a good computer nd have good cooling with everything and save money so I'm not buying it from the stores and I'm going to build it on my own with the help of my computer teacher

Avoid cases with power supplies. They are generally cheap PSUs that fail within 6 months-ish under medium/heavy load. If you are a gamer or plan to OC your system you want a good quality PSU. Also, as of now, Intel is slightly better in the performance for the price area, so you may want to look into an Intel build for now.
ok so... once I look up the other recommendations I'll reply another list here so til then I'll just work on look up the products and also... could anyone post item numbers of whatever replacements? it would help me figure out what to buy and stuff A LOT FASTER! lol so ya... plz? and thank you for all ur responses I'm a n00b at this so... ya... my old computer just randomly stopped working one day and thne after 2 days it worked again... randomly.. so I took that as a sign, that I needed to get a new computer and my friends suggested that I build one cause it'd be cheaper. So thnk you all for your suggestions =D and could you still help
ALSO since I'm a n00b with computers still, I'm not gonig to be overcloaking or using SLI.
Stick with the AMD if you not planing to overclock. You won't regreat it. For case go with Antec 900 and PSU CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX 550W ATX12V. For mobo go with one of the AM2+ as it supports Phenom. Good luck
Forget any type of Fancy Cooling.
It's really not necessary.
Just get yourself a nice Aftermarket Cooler.
Overclocking Intel CPUs is so simple currently, that I don't even consider it Overlocking to a certain point. At least not like it was a few years ago.
Now it's really a matter of nowing a few basic proper BIOS settings.
