Hey All, I was wondering if this rig I am building will match my needs. I mainly game, MMO's mostly. Probably will be doing some FPS too. Budget started at 800 but with win 7, monitor and other peripherals I'm currently sitting at around 1250... figured I may as well do this right, huh? I'm driving my wife nuts so I figured I would go to the experts! Let me know what you think!

Viewsonic 23" Monitor

Win 7 home 64 bit

Naga Razr mouse

logitech 110 keyboard

Haf 922 w/ 200 mm side fan

AMD phenom II x4 955 black

XTX 5770 GPU

ASUS m4a79x mobo

Samsung pinpoint f3 500gb hard drive

Cooler master silent pro 600w PSU

Scythe SCKTN-3000 92mm Sleeve "KATANA3" 3Heat Pipes CPU Cooler

4gb gskill ripjaws RAM

Well thats about it... I want a scalable future proof system (as much as that is possible). Already ordered case, cpu, monitor, hard drive, and mobo. Please give me some feed back and THANKS!!

Hi nwecomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

I would change the monitor for a samsung or an Asus, the mobo for an Asus Crosshair III or Asus M4A79T Deluxe and maybe the 5770 for a 5870 or 5850.
