Hey guys, I posted here a few days ago about my $700-$800 gaming PC that I was going to build.

I ended up going with these parts.

Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-MA790GPT-UD3H AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
CPU: AMD Phenom II X2 545 Callisto 3.0GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 80W Dual-Core
Ram: A-DATA Gaming Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal
GPU: XFX HD-585A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready
PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ700MXSP 700W ATX12V V2.2 / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS

DVD: Sony Optiarc Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X

I'd just like to say I unlocked the Dual core to a quad successfully and ran prime95 over night with no problems.

This build cost me $751 total (including shipping)

Thanks for your guys help!

Congrats on the build, very nice. How do you like the CM Storm Scout case? I will be finishing a similar build tonight, and am just kicking myself for not getting the 690 II or the Storm Scout. I went with the Thermaltake V9 Black in a moment of impulsive cheapness.

Oh sorry about the late reply. The CM-storm is very nice. Couple things I should mention though.

The molex connector for the top fan was stuck on the left side of the case (The side that doesn't open) and I had to re-wire it so it would reach my PSU molex.

The LED molex connector was stuck under the motherboard tray and it took me about 20 minutes to get it out.

After that though all was fine.
