$800-$1000 Gaming computer

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Black friday, Ciber Monday and if I don't buy everything on those dates I will buy it until the end of the year =D

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: gaming

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Monitor, speakers, OS

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com, tigerdirect.com, amazon.com

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: United States

PARTS PREFERENCES: I don't really have a preference, but for the case I want one that have the inside painted, and that have a good cable management

OVERCLOCKING: Later, probably, but not for now

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe a couple of years from now

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1440x900 (19" lcd tv), but after I build it, I will buy a 1920 x 1080 or 1920 x 1200(24-26"monitor)

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I don't really care about the computer noise as long as it does not look like if there was a airplane taking off next to me :P

That time that's my final budget range, and I'm really going to buy when I find really good deals,:P

That's what I have so far:

-Antec 902 case
-Western Digital Caviar Black 640 GB
-RAM 4GB
-Intel Core i5 750
-MSI GD65 Motherboard
-Corsair PSU 750W
-Optical Drive
-ATI 5850 (When available)

    Here's a build, I've done for someone else. Take a look at it, and use it as a reference.

    I only used newegg, but you can use other sites if you can find the same parts for cheaper.
    Or if you can find better combos at newegg

    Here's an i5 750 build with new monitor, without O.S

    Total: $1,288.88 Before Rebate

    This build gives you the ability to crossfire/sli in the future if new games are more demanding. You could add in another graphics card, the power supply is decent and could handle 2 graphics card.
  2. Which one should I get as motherboard?
    GIGABYTE GA-P55-UD4P
    or
    MSI P55-GD65
    ??
    And about the ram that you posted isn't it like slower then the one that i selected?
  3. Heard good things about both motherboards so I can't really say.

    The ram he picked is lower speed, but better latency. The one you picked is probably fine, but to be honest, whatever you can get that's cheap in that range should do fine, as long as it's from a reputable company like G.Skill. Spending money on better ram really won't do much for your gaming performance, although it seems to me like lower latencies might make for steadier framerates? See this link

    Also, I'm pretty sure that the Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB is both cheaper and faster than the WD Caviar Black (although granted it's slightly smaller). Someone correct me on this if I'm wrong.
  4. The gigabyte, asus and gigabyte over all others.

    the gigabyte board is better for overclocking...more pci slots too i think..
    overall better board..

    the ram you picked have high latencies vs my 1333mhz 7-7-7-21 ram..plus the mobo+ram combo saves you 30 bucks. the real world performance is about the same..even the slower run performs better at times because of the lower latencies...
  6. just wondering i selected the gd65 so i can overclock on the future, or when i buy a better heatsink,xD(the gd65 have a noob press button, that just pressing it overlocks the cpu,xD, yeah,i'm a noob on overclocking)

    Look at this video at 6: 42 how it works, it's simple, and the results are no that bad the clock speed went up by almost 1.0ghz

    I know, the motherboard used there is a GD80 but the GD65 have this same feature=D,xD
