Hello I need advice for good gaming computer. I don't need price suggestions and stuff I just wanna know If build is good and if you would, with what would you replace it?

Power supply: Mushkin XP-800AP "Extreme Performance" 800W
Casing: Cooler Master RC-690-KKN1-GP
Graphic Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 4890 "Vapor-X" 1024MB GDDR 5 PCI-Express™ 16x

I also have in plan to overclock Intel Core i7 920 to at least 3,2 ghz. Since I'm a noob in overclocking, is there any step by step guide that shows how to safely overclock it to that number or more with better cooling(Cooler Master V8).


Another question:
Should I rather go with Phenom II X4 955 build?

Unless you are planning to upgrade your monitor in the near future you don't need such a high end graphics card. Try a 4770 or a 4830 or even a 4850. You could also save some money on ram. A 1600 kit from Gskill or OCZ is probably a better choice. As for the PSU I am not too familiar with the Mushkin line of PSUs what about Corsair, PcPower or Antec (TruePower New, Earthwatts or Signature Series)?
