Ok so I have never actually built a computer, but I've learned how to build one. I wanted to see if these parts would work all together and if its good for playing Left 4 dead on 1900 by 1200 with everything MAXED. Here are the parts.

Mobo:http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

CPU:http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

HDD:http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

GPUx2 (SLI):http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

Case: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

Please tell me if anything is incompatible or if there is something that could be better for the same price, i'd like this to be my first build.

Yeah those would all work together fine. I'm not sure about Apevia psu's, I would go with a Corsairs one but you probably wouldnt have any trouble with it. Also, you should really buy from newegg.com, they're generally cheaper on alot of things. If you tell me your whole budget I could suggest another build for you.

1. DO NOT get tha Apavia PSU. It's low quality. Get a good PSU from Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, Antec.

2. Swap board to : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
P45-UD3R

and get: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
4850 in CrossFire (Over kill for L4D). $90 after MIR. Even less with promo code "VGA61915X"

3. Also, you don't need a SLI/CrossFire set up to play Left 4 Dead maxed out. A single GTX280/4870 can do the job easily. See: http://www.pcgameshardware.com/aid,667611/Left-4-Dead-G...

edit: Took off direct link to bench marks as it would not allow direct linking.

Note: I assume you have a 1900*1200 LCD?

What was wrong with t he prvious motherboard and also what about this one

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... EGA790i FTW edition ?

^Nothing wrong with the EVGA board listed, but with the current market, the ATI prices are dropping fast, and you should be able to put in a second 4850 with the UD3R.

Like I said above, you probably don't need a SLI/CrossFire set up for L4D at 1900*1200. Eitherway, game with a single GPU first and then if needed, just add in a 2nd GPU in SLI/CrossFire, which ever one floats your boar.

actually if u saw the HDD link it is internalized inside of it already

The build that I put together would have much better gaming performance than the other suggestions. The Q9650 is a little better than the X4 955 but the 4890s are far superior than the 4850's or 9800gt's. If you wanted to save some money though u could go with a single 4890. Whichever u prefer.

Yeah everything looks great. Do you really need vista ultimate? Vista home premium would work just fine and its a good amount cheaper. Just sayin'. Other than that, nice build.
June 22, 2009 9:22:40 PM

Thanks huys but just wanna clarify, everything works together right. also how long would the build last like say i didnt get these parts until december would it still be a decnt gaming system like for max settings regular FPS games like L4D COD4 n such u thnk itd still b good for L4D2 and CODMW2?
June 22, 2009 10:00:32 PM

Yeah everything is compatible. If you didnt buy the parts until December, you could probably get something much better.
June 23, 2009 12:13:10 AM

If waiting till December you could probably go with an i5 which comes close to an i7 in performance.

hmmm if i bought the lexa case u thnk itd still be good 4 december nonono ill wait price 4 case will prolly drop hmmmm hey guys i got one last question if i have the desktop that uses DDR2 800megahertz of one gig could i use 2 sticks of ram of 2 gigs in each and 1333 MHTz also i hav 32 bit so i kno itll only read 3 gigs
June 23, 2009 2:01:27 PM

^ You CAN'T use DDR2 on a DDR3 board (I'm assuming you meant DDR3 1333?) or are you talking about FSB 1333?
June 23, 2009 2:26:35 PM

i5 will be ddr3 so no ddr2 if you wait until December, also I think AMD is discontinuing the am2+ compatibility around then so no DDR2 either way.
