Hello everyone, I put a lot of time and research into getting the parts to build the best gaming PC possible for my budget. I now have my credit card out and I am ready to make the purchase for the parts but before I do I want to run it through you guys. Please respond In a timely fashion because I am prepared to make my purchase after I have a few responses.

I need all parts except monitor and keyboard/mouse, I want to use it for gaming mainly.

The only thing I would recommend is switching the GPU to the XFX HD-485X-ZNFC Radeon HD 4850 1GB, which is cheaper and will out perform the 9800 GTX +. Everything else looks pretty good to me overall.

Thanks a lot, I really appreciate your input I'll make the change. joined this site just yesterday and I am really impressed by the quality responses and high experience of people on the site, I don't know that much about computer hardware and greatly appreciate your guidance.

I guess if you're going with the i3 and that geforce 9800 vid then the build is fine.

You might want to consider a different HD. the 7200.12 is getting very bad reviews, all across the boards it's a very short life HD.

I would recommend you the samsung F3 but newegg only carries the 1tb or 250 gb versions.

Although zipzoomfly does carry the 500 gb size
