Hey, i am in need of help of building a budgeted gaming PC with advice and suggestions.
MOST LIKELY WILL NOT BE OVERCLOCKING
www.newegg.ca - main website i wish to attain to.
I want to get the best performance and bang for the buck!
I want to be able to run games with great fps with out lag.. I was thinking about the following so far:
I am not too sure if everything fits properly, I didnt give much look into it yet.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: (Hopefully within the next month) BUDGET RANGE: (600-800) Before / After Rebates

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: (gaming, watching movies/tv shows, researching/schooling)

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: (dont need keyboard, mouse or monitor)

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: www.newegg.ca

PARTS PREFERENCES: Was hoping to go with an AMD Phenom ii x4 955 build(heard great things about this cpu) and has an amazing price.

OVERCLOCKING: Probably not. SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Not atm

MONITOR RESOLUTION:
Im running 1280x1024 right now

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I want best performance & best bang for the buck. GAMING.

CASE - Antec 200/ Antec 300 would be good options...

Graphics card - I would suggest the HD 5770 rather than other cards...
Reason - 1. They are powerful enough for your resolution
2. They are next Gen DirectX 11

PSU - as you will be going with 1 card( Even the mobo supports only 1 card), these would suffice...
