My older brother convinced me into building a gaming PC, but i have little knowledge of computers, after doing some research and choosing parts i came up with this list of components.

CPU-AMD 1055T 2.8Ghz hexacore
Motherboard-Gigabyte 890 GPA
Graphics Card-Sapphire HD5770
Case-SKY 219 W/550watt PSU
RAM-6GB(3x2GB) Kingston 1333Mhz
Disc Drive-Samsung 8x Blu-Ray
HDD-WD 1TB 7200Rpm
Monitor-BenQ G2222 LED 22In
Cooling-Cooler Master Hyper 212

I really have no idea if these will work and if they are any good performance wise, im planning to run windows 7 on this system and need to be able to play games on atleast medium settings, any advice or help would be super appreciated!!!

Fill out form in sticky. Link in my sig.

Don't need hexacore for gaming. Phenom II x4 is fine.

You'll want a better GPU.

Blue ray drive is pretty useless ATM.
Don't buy a cheap PSU.
AMD doesn't use tri channel RAM, you'll need a dual channel kit.

Link to actual components. There are lots of 1TB WD drives and Benq monitors, which one do you want?

thats the model benq monitor (g2222)
whats a good case and PSU then (im 14 so money is pretty tight)
also would a quadcore 965 or 955 be better than a 1055T?
5770 is just cheap so it appealed to me. a 5970 or 5850 is a bit out of my reach
i have 1500 (Aus) bucks to play with, so any suggestions or alternatives would be nice because i really have no idea.

Um there isn't any link to computer parts on that gamedude website.

Exchange rate is 1.2 Aus to 1 US ATM, and I know stuff over there is a bit more expensive so I'll give you $1,100 US build.

Win is OEM edition is fine and is $100 over here in the states.

Case wise, it's worth it to get a good case for superior airflow and space. I've got no idea what companies sell cases in Aus actually so I couldn't really make a suggestion there. So I just left $60 open in the build for it.

Cheap and ok ones are the Antec 300 Illusion (Illusion version has extra fans) and Centurion 5

Good ones I recommend for US builders are CM HAF 922
and antec 902.

I personally love the Element G, but it a price premium over the other 2, but has certain features I like, (massive sidefan included, fan controller and SSD mounts).

It's a good idea to get a large case like the HAF 922 for your first build as more space, makes it easier to do your first build (more places to run and hide cables).
