Hi All,

I'm almost finished with my build I just need some suggestions on a tower and power supply. Here is what I have so far...

- $165.00 AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor
- $184.99 GIGABYTE GA-790FXTA-UD5 AM3 AMD 790FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
- $314.99 HIS H585F1GDG Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card
- $99.99 G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
- $99.99 Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
- $29.99 LITE-ON 24x DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model DH-24AAS - OEM


BUDGET RANGE: Approx 1-1.2K

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, watching movies, web development, surfing the internet

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: mouse, keyboard, monitor, speakers

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: but am open to suggestions


OVERCLOCKING: Never had before but I would like to learn.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: Not sure...sorry, not home right now to look. It's a Dell 19" lcd from 2007 so I'm not too worried.

Best solution
