I just have to make sure it is a reputable and trusted seller. So feel free to use ebay in your buiild as long as the seller has over 250 feedback. I really want to build this so yeah. THANK YOU! By the way here is how I built it so far. Any suggestions would be great!

  1. bad bad bad!! eak!

    AMD is the best bang for the buck at $1k budget.

    The GT 240 is a terrible video card, the combo you selected is not good either.

    The below PC is far better.

    The PSU you selected absolutely sucks, thermaltake is a horrible PSU brand.

  2. I agree with whitefang +1
