hey guys i need some clarification i am making a computer and decided to go with the intel core-i5 seeing the results of benchmark testing
i found that it is good with games. my budget is no higher than $800. i want the intel DP55K (kingsberg) mother board and maybe a Patriot sector 5 viper 2 memory DDR3 what i tend to use. will the PSU Tuniq miniplant 950w be a good powersupply with a cooling unit of a thermal right MUX 120 and, or Thermal right TR-FDB-12-1600 120mm fan 63.7cfm 1600rpm be good? should i use but m problem is what type of video card should i use? would the ATI radeon 4850 HD be good or do i need better. want to run stuff like doom3 or mmorpgs. and my hard drive would that be good if i used a western digital 320 GB or use a western digital 500GB SATA 2 HDD as my harddrive? what should i use for my harddrive and and video card? would that build be sustantial?

i wold appreciate immedtate responses and information i am making a decent gaming computer.

i5 750 will be over budget. If you get the i3/i5 32nm dualie, you still have to lower your gpu to HD 5770-ish. How about maximize return on your initial investment by going with AMD?
