  1. Do you plan on overclocking? If no, then you don't need that heatsink.
    Get this ram, its cheaper and faster http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231303&cm_re=ripjaws-_-20-231-303-_-Product
    That PSU is junk, plan on Crossfire? Ill tell you a PSU when you answer that.
    This hdd is faster for same price http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148395&Tpk=7200.12%20500gb
    This case is much nicer for $10 more http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3198497&CatId=1842

    use the stock one? and is that graphics card better then a xfx geforce 9800 gtx+
  4. Yes if you aren't overclocking use the stock one. The 9800 GTX + is just a bit better than the 4850.

    alright thanks a lot =) time to buy and build =)
  6. would this build be able to run crysis at max setting?
  7. No, your GPU limits that. That GPU is pretty low on the totem pole.
  8. Just because a config is cheap doesn't mean it can't generate monster fraames for the $$
    $600.93 AR
