This is my first system build, and I am posting the core parts of what I have now. All of these parts will be purchased through Newegg. I am still trying to decided On I GPU. Right now I am leaning towards ATI 5850. Please let me know If I am heading in the right direction.

Thanks in advance.

1-Case
-AZZA Solano 1000 Black/Black Japanese SECC Steel/Metal mesh in front ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Cost- 109.99

2- Power supply
-AZZA Dynamo 850 850W ATX & EPS 12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply
Cost- 99.99
The reason why I have this is mostly due to the combo price that Newegg is offering and it has Average reviews


3- GPU
-SAPPHIRE 100282SR Radeon HD 5850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity
Price- 299.99
I am still at odds about this Card. It has dx11 support which will be nice once they make dx11 supported games.

4-Mobo
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
cost-289.99

5-CPU
-Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz
288.99

CPU Cooler
-Scythe MUGEN-2 SCMG-2000 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
Cost -35.00

6- RAM

cost-169.00

7- HD
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST31000528AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

I am planning on OCing in the future.

^ That is a good build...but not a good PSU I would say...
Change it to Corsair 750TX... It would have enough power for HD 5850 Crossfire, actually even more(Can handle HD 5870 Crossfire too)...

And as for the RAM,

And this one if you like to add some bling...

You can check the UD5/ UD4P mobos from Gigabyte...they also have equally good quality and are cheaper...

And As you are planning to overclock, buy an aftermarket CPU cooler...

Thanks for the input. I was abit uneasy about the PSU to begin with. I actually had this power supply on my build first, but changed it out with the Azza. I am thinking about switching back. As for the RAM I have swapped that for Corsair. The Tracer Ram was cool looking.

I Plan on going with the Mugen cooler.

Thanks alot for the help

I was wanting Some opinons on the RAM. I was reading some reviews and test about all the above RAM and trying to decided which would be the best buy is the hard part. I did notice that the Crucial Ballistix Tracer 6GB reach latency as low as 6-6-6 which is very good. What is your input on this?

Crucial RAMs are very good and overclock better...IF you get a good kit, then you might be able to get that low CAS but it not sure though...
Rest are fine...
