Although im not sure about the video card and i think i want a ssd drive. What do you think? im a beginner, not really sure what im doing!!! i want a system that i will be able to upgrade. any help would be appreciated.
Quote:You could save some money on the psu, you only need a good 500-600w. The V8 is also very expensive, there's cheaper heatsink fans out there that are better and cheaper. Try the coolermaster hyper 212+ for $30.
I would recommend using the psu and heatsink savings to with at least a 5770 video card.
cool . thanks for your help, let me ask you , why would you need a modulating psu? So all i need is 500-600w? Ok i wasnt sure, i guess 850w is overkill for my 1st build?

Yes, 850w will run 2 and even possibly 3 GPU's. Id suggest getting a good 650 watt with a 5770, then Crossfire down the road.
i would get this mobo. it is great, ocs well, and has good implementation of sata 6 and usb 3:
