More about comments build please
  1. ^ From where you will be buying the components from ? And what is the main intended use ?
  2. Was thinking to get it from Newegg and it will be for gaming and surfing.
    Have a ATX case with 650W and a monitor 1920x1200, also have keyboard, mouse, speakers and Windows.
  3. ^ Some changes to your build...
    Get this CPU + Mobo combo...
    X4 955 + ASUS 790X
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.315717

    RAM - This would be a better option...
    GSKillz
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277

    HDD - Definitely this one...It is faster than that 500GB...
    Samsung F3
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152181

    Graphics card - The 5750 for that resolution might be a little weak for graphic intensive games...go with the faster 5770
    XFX HD 5770

  4. Do you have 650W el-cheapo PSU?Change it if so.

    Consider the changes that gkay09 suggested.
  5. Thanks!
  6. I was actually gonna get a case and PSU from a friend but now he will keep them so I was looking at this PSU, is it any good?
    Raidmax Hybrid 2RX-630SS
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817152035
    Was thinking to have a blue theme on my new build.
    Still searching for a case.
  7. This is a better PSU from much better and reliable brand.
    Get this one instead.

  8. It's best completely avoid Raidmax and Rosewill PSU's. The OCZ PSU suggested above is a much better PSU.
  9. How big PSU do I need?
    Maybe will Crossfire in the future.
  10. Ok, how about this?

    How about cooling unit?
  11. That OCZ 500W will suffice for CF but Since you are crossfiring then I would recommend this one:
    Corsair 550VX
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139004&Tpk=550vx

    A very very good unit.Better quality than OCZ.
  12. ^ 550W would suffice for crossfire, but will be cutting close...A 600W PSU would be a better option...
    The OCZ mod 600W would be a good option...

    And dont miss this combo...
