    All that comes to $935.

    What games do you play and on what resolution.

    Hope that helps.

    [EDIT]
    "Reyesx" he has given all the information necessary, it is a gaming build with a budget of 800-1000. That is all you need to know. Only fanboyish losers limit there build to either AMD or Intel, they should let the community decide what is best, not their fanboyisim.
  3. I would go with 5770 and use extra $150 saved for some extended warranties on newegg for CPU mobo and gpu. Just my opinion.
  4. Please fill out the sticky with your build information before w proceed any further.

    Also I would rather see you get a 955 vs the 945 amd.
  5. "Extended warranties" you sound like a Dell sales person. He does not need to go to a 5770 to afford longer warranties.

    2 years extended warranty on Phenom II X4 945 $27
    2 years extended warranty on ASUS M4A785TD-V $19
    I didn't see the XFX 5850 to start with. XFX HD5850 Lifetime warranty $310 ($5 cheaper then the Shappire one above)

    That adds up to $41, which comes to $976 for the build. Who said it is worth dropping to a 5770 to get extended warranties. Oh no it still fits the budget, hmm what will we do.

    How and I didn't put the motherboard link in above:

  6. 945 is am2+ if i am correct. you are suggesting an old build. 955 is the newer generation. (965 is just overclocked 955) other than that its pretty good build. but i wouldn't go for warenties. I think they are a waste.
  7. "945 is am2+ if i am correct. you are suggesting an old build."

    How about you use Bing before posting degrading comments.
  8. Lol fanboyish losers, he didn't even have thread set up right at first "punk". My mistake on not seeing the gaming in title, I just woke up :)
