Looks great though. m 0 l Best solution shubham1401 October 11, 2009 4:30:51 AM That build is good but can be improved... Change the processor to Core i5 750 And the case to Antec 900 or equivalent... You will save a lot which will enable you to buy a better card which is most important for a gaming PC. Buy a Radeon 5850 then... Share Related resources Suggestions for my build? - Forum little gaming build suggestions - Forum New Computer Build - Need help/suggestions - Forum My First Build!

Unless you do any other type of CPU intensive tasks, I'd stick to the I5. m 0 l JackNaylorPE October 11, 2009 1:33:00 PM Also suggest an Antec 902 Why Vista w/ Win 7 shipping from newegg in 8 days (for 10/22 delivery) The 2 TB WD Black is a top performer but the 1 TB model pales next to the competition http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/hard-drives,3.html Don't forget to check the sound and temperature charts Some better drives are $20 cheaper too. If I was gonna spend that much on a Mobo w/ that CPU, I think I'd rather have theRampage II Extreme w/ an 900 series CPU. With the extra $100, get a 5850. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
