  1. I am still not sure about psu and case
  2. For your budget you won't be able to get a good Intel processor, good intel processors are just from the i5 ($200) because all of the core 2 duo, quad, or whatever are in a dead platform, LGA 775, so from that you should get a Amd build.

    (I'm not sure about monitors, but I think the one I'm putting down is nice.)

    It's a kind of overpriced but I think it's going to be a really nice build. If you want something cheaper just tell me, I'm going to try to make another one,XD, but I think is the best you are going to get for the price, the only thing I see now that would be possible to lower the price would be get a cheaper motherboard

    Monitor
    Hanns·G Hi-221DPB Black 22"
    OS
    Windows 7 Home Premium 64bits
    Motherboard+CPU
    AMD Athlon II 620 x4 + ASUS M4A79XTD EVO
    DDR3 4GB Memory
    HD 500GB
    Case
    CM 690
    PSU
    OCZ 500W
    Optical Drive
    Video Card
    ATI 4850

    Total- $850, after shipping, and after rebates
  3. The build you put down is better than what I have up there, but it's more expensive, and doesn't have a monitor, if you can afford it, you should say go for it, but the case that I put up there is also good and the PSU that I wrote down is better and together with the case it's cheaper then this combo, and the video card I would just say buy a xfx or a sapphire video card, would just change the brand. The memory that I have is better and it's just $5 more, so I think you should get the one I wrote. Other then that it's a solid build

  5. still need help
  6. what about video card
  7. Its up there^

    GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131327

    But I changed it to this one now... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150448&cm_re=5750-_-14-150-448-_-Product

    But if you think you may do more gaming then pay the $20 and get a 5770

    B/C you wont be doing any serious gaming and it will save you about $20
  8. go with 5series, might as well for Dx11, not just for gaming but for video viewing as well.

    5770 is pretty much a 4850, but has Dx11 support as well as true bit-streaming for blu-ray audio
