Hey guys I'm trying to put this bad boy together for $1000 including monitor. Its gonna be a gaming PC so could you guys tell me if I have all the parts and if they are all compatible? I'm kind of worried about the quality of the monitor though...Thanks:

no problem,but you can't delete the other one so if you want to continue here write there that if anyone wants to comment to post here and consider the other closed and give a link to this thread,also sorry if i was rude
Thanks I really appreciate the suggestions, but what exactly is crossfire? How does the non-built in PSU work exactly? It looks pretty bulky. Do i just plug them into each other or something? ive never built a pc before hehe
Crossfire is ATI's name for using 2 graphics cards to run a single monitor so you get better performance, nVidia's equivilent is SLI.
As for non built in PSUs its really easy, you just slide them into the slot inside the case, put in the 4 screws that connect it to the case, and then plug it into the other components.
You may want to find some tutorials or videos online just to see what it will be like when you guild it. It doesnt take long if it goes smoothly, but if you have an unexpected snag it can take a while so its best to anticipate and avoid the most common issues.
Cool, thanks for letting me know. I have done some revising of my system and here is what ive got now. Let me know how this sounds to everyone. My main concern is the graphics card. itll stack up to the geforce GTX 275 right? Everything in this setup is compatible?
