ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: i'll mainly use it for playing games and watching anime,i play wow, cs:s and l4d so i would like it to run those games at the highest settings with at least 30fps , i would like the graphics card to have an hdmi port on it so i can plug it into my hdtv, but other than that the rest doesnt matter to me, just want to get the best i can for my price range, i dont multi-task much i usually have a game or photoshop running along side the internet thats about it.
just found this build, http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/overclock-e5200-rad... will that work for what i need it cause that is a really good price, again i wont be playing games like crysis, left 4 dead would probably be the best graphic game i run on this other than that i will be using my ps3,
That will do what you want but you're probably going to want to overclock the E5200.
Additionally, prices on some of those parts have gone down since the article was written (most notably the 4870) so you might be able to invest in maybe an E8400 depending on how far you want to stretch your budget.
Given your budet, at the resolution your monitor supports this will be a very fast system. You'll have no problem playing Crysis or any other game on high. If you want a faster GPU though, the 1GB Sapphire 4870 is $190, but other than that, I don't think anything in between would really be worth it.
