More about will game well
  1. It would be very helpful for making suggestions if you posted the actual links to all of these products
  2. You don't seem to have a hard drive in that list, for $55 you can get a Seagate 7200.12 500 GB or a Samsung Spinpoint F3 500 GB.

    Your ram is mismatched, and getting 4 GB is highly recommended for gaming.
    This G.Skill CAS 9 4 GB kit is almost the same price as your 2 1 GB sticks, counting the free shipping ($85).
    CAS 7 1333 MHz RAM is recommended by most, this OCZ kit is $105.

    Do you need an OS? Windows 7 OEM is available for about $105.

    (All prices based on newegg.)

    ya i know im missing a hd and an os but i got it covered thanks though

    ya i think your right about the ram i should go with that ram you suggested i was a little iffy on my choice
  5. I agree with the g skill memory recommendation made above.

    I would suggest doing better than a 5770 GPU - that will really make the most difference when gaming. A 5850 is much better. You may find an nVidia card around 250$ for somewhere in between the 5770 and 5850, because at the moment ATI doesn't have one (should change with the 5830 card)

    I would also suggest the x2 550 or x3 720 CPUs. They are black edition, w/ unlocked multipliers. That CPU only has 2MB of L2 cache... the ones I mentioned have 6GB of L3 cache, and they're benchmarked here at tom's hardware:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/balanced-gaming-pc,2477.html
    And both listed as great buys for their prices here:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-gaming-cpu,2520.html

    Lastly, realize the mobo you chose only supports DDR2, which prices are now unbearable to buy. Go for a DDR3 board like this one:
    GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 (65$ after MIR @ newegg)
    and the RAM the guy before me mentioned:
    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) (85$ newegg)
  6. k i guess i should start rethinking my approach then cause now i need to redo my mobo, cpu, ram, gpu, lol i might as well jus erase what i have done lol. dont get me wrong im happy to hear some feed back.
  7. i know you said that the 5850 would be way bettter than the 5770 but its like $150 bucks more! i cant do that sorry dude any other suggestions? maybe going down to a 4870?
  8. Grab a 4890 off eBay then. Or just stick with the 5770. The 5770's fine. Yeah it's not a kill them all screaming demon card, but it'll perform very, very well and you'll have a great time. Then just throw a fiver in the jar every now and then and in 6 months-1 year you can buy another 5770 then you'll be "current", if that makes you happy. Just get your 5770 and realize that's it's more than enough.
  9. What resolution are you looking to game at? The 5770 will be fine for anything 1680 x 1050 or lower. If you want to play the latest games at resolutions like 1900 x 1200 then you're going to want a better GPU. The 5770 will give you about the same performance as a 4870, but will have directx 11 support and Eyefinity, plus draws less power and therefore runs cooler. Like Mirzai_m recommended you can always get a second 5770 later and get 5850 level performance.
  10. k ill jus stick with what i got setup now i guess im now doin this build instead :)

    please feel free to comment or suggest improvements :bounce:
  11. Looks good. One thing you may want to consider is your motherboard has only a single PCIe x16 slot. This means that if you want to crossfire later you'll need a new board. Other than that your build looks good.
