I have never built anything before and need help. I'm mostly happy with what i picked, but i'm not really one for this and probably have missed something that doesn't work with everything else. About 750/800 is good, but of course, less is better for me.

This HDD is faster and cheaper per gb. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you do not plan on x-fire get this PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
If you plan on x-fire get a 600w OCZ or 650w Antec/Corsair.
DO NOT get that BFG PSU. it is junk.

Heres 4gb or ram, and faster for just $80 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Excellent Ram, good psus, hdd is ok but the op should make sure he updates the firmware, you could also get a 1 TB drive from newegg for $65 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I'm pretty sure this is as fast as the seagate but I'm no hdd expert. I'd expect it to be though, as it is 7200 rpm and has 16mb of cache.

The .11 seagates are the bad ones. The .12 ones are great.
