Aight, I'm the in house IT person for a company, and I need a new computer.

My current computer is a 1.8ghz Pentium 4 with a gig of RAM...
:pfff:  :pfff:  :pfff:  :pfff:  :pfff:  :pfff:  :pfff: 

Suffice to say, with the amount of stuff I do, I desire a faster machine. I'm trying not to go crazy and build a gaming machine, but I don't want to buy cheap and have to worry about stuff breaking, I spend enough time fixing everyone else's stuff. :non: 

So, this is what I've put together:


CPU: i5-750
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 4gb DDR3 1600
GPU: Radeon HD 4670 512mb
HD: WD Caviar Black 640gb SATA
PSU: Corsair 650TX

Case: Cooler Master RC-690
Optical: Dual Asus Burners

I'm not particularly keen on going with an AMD build. Money isn't so much the issue as is compatibility and stability.

All the components look balanced and well thouhgt out. However you didnt mention what the PC gets used for. If you do a look of heavy graphics work then I would suggest a more powerful graphics card... other than that I would try looking at the Samsung Spin Point F3 HDD (1tb) which are very quick and have a very good price at the moment
