ok so im building a computer mainly for recording and gaming. I use Pro Tools and m-audio products. I play old and recent games. Right now im using a laptop and it's pretty lousy...i don't really want to buy more Ram for it. I would rather build a computer. So anyways, i will be using it for recording, gaming, audio, web browsing etc...

My Budget is 1000 or below...with a monitor. I already have mouse etc...

I just put some parts together and i would love to have some different opinions and suggestions if it's good or not and ways to make it better :) -------CD/DVD ------Hardrive WD 1TB ------Corsair Power Supply -----Sapphire Video Card ------Gigabyte MOBO -----AMD Phenom II X4 940 (quad core) -----G.SKILL 4GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 -----Asus 23.6 Monitor (recent price drop of $30ish)

Looks pretty good except you didnt link to the motherboard, you linked to the graphics card twice. Also if you are not dead set on a modular PSU then i would go for the Corsair 650
Comes out cheaper and gives you more room if you decide to crossfire in the future.

Also you may want to switch out the GPU for this one
It will exhaust the heat outside the case and gives you a lifetime warranty.

And do you already have a case? If not there are some pretty nice PSU/Case combos out there
