It'd be easier for us to help you knowing unspecified things, like your budget, what parts you already have, and what resolution you play at. MadAdmiral May 3, 2010 8:34:34 PM Yuck. Really not a great build. Here's what I'd build for under $2,000: CPU/Mobo: i7-930 and Asus P6X58D Premium $585 RAM: G.Skill Pi 3x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $190 GPU: HD 5970 $700 HDD: Seagate 7200.12 1 TB $80 PSU: OCZ Z Series 850W 80+ Gold $220 Case: HAF 922 $90 Optical: Cheap SATA DVD burner $22 HSF (if OC): Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus $30 Total: $1,917 A SSD isn't worth it at their high price, nor is putting drives in RAID. Just get a fast HDD (which you have) and leave it alone until you get a SSD at a reasonable price. The 932 is a good case, but doesn't give you much over the much cheaper 922. The 5850 is a joke with your budget. Step it up to actually make the expensive worth it. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
