This is the first time I'm gonna build a computer and I'm not sure if it will be good enough to play all the new games. I've always wanted gaming pc and now is my chance.
This is what I've come up with so far and it looks pretty good to me :
- Cooler Master HAF Mini 922 Black <- Case
- Silver Power SP-SS650 650W <- Power supply
- ASUS P5Q Deluxe, P45, Socket-775 <- Motherboad
- Intel Core™ 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz Socket <- Processor
- XFX Radeon HD 4890 1GB "xXx" GDDR5 <- Graphics card
- Corsair XMS2 Xtreme Performance 4 GB <- RAM
- Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB <- Hard drive
- Samsung DVD-burner SE-S224Q, 22x < Burner
- Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit Sv Single <- OS
Well, this is it. If you got anything to add or a tip or something.
And one thing: I live in Sweden and the prices can be a bit different to the other contrys, but if you know something that will work better in the system, please tell me

^ it is however biased, the GTX 285 beats the 4890 by a considerable margin in Crysis, and look at this bench by tweaktown, it's run with no AA and the 4890 still only gets 26fps average, while the 285 gets 37fps average.
now we could go back an forth here but 4890 owns 3dmark06 in every way yeah maybe nvidia maybe ati but we letting brand loyalty get in the way have you even owned a ati? guess not but i have 2 4890s wich work perfectly i been through 4850 4670 right back too 800x but i've also had nvidia quite a few 1 series but this is bout a card jus let it at that
