Hey everyone, I was wondering if I could get some advice about building my own PC. I am planning on using ibuypower.com because I've never built my own and I dont want to screw it up. My friend told me to post here and list the parts with links to the specs pages. So are these parts going to be compatible with each other to minimize bottle necks?:

Sorry my links were retarded earlier. Ok, the cost of everything listed (without other stuff like monitor, shipping, wiring, packaging, surge protector, and a neon light) it comes out to $757. after all the extra stuff it jumps up to $1013 plus about $100 for shipping. I want to be able to play games without any bs. I'm not a self-proclaimed gamer by any means, but I just want to play a game that isnt choppy and I can turn on the extra stuff like shadows and anti aliasing or whatever. Maybe like just cause 2, mercenaries 2, half life 2, starcraft 2, etc. Actually, I want to play crysis as close to full blast as possible without spending a gratuitous amount of extra cash, and I want directx 11 (should I upgrade video card?). I dont need a God among computers, but I dont want a pixelly image if I can help it. ibuypower customizer doesnt specify the brand of psu, so I guess its a generic one, but it does list some specs:

Type: ATX12V / EPS12V
Fans: 1 x 140mm fan
PFC: Passive
Crossfire: Ready
SLI: Ready
Modular: No
Efficiency: No
Dimension (LxWxH): 5.9"x5.9"x3.4"
Connectors:
1 x Main connector
1 x 12V(4+4Pin)
8 x peripheral
6 x SATA
1 x Floppy
2 x PCI-E(8Pin)

As far as the ram goes I'm not sure I put the right new egg link, but I'll write the specs from ibuypower:

It says corsair XMS3 dominator w/ DHX technology

Type: 240-pin DDR3 SDRAM
Capacity: 2GB (2 x 2GB)
Cas Latency: 9
Timing: 9-9-9-24
Recommended Voltage: 1.50
Heat Spreader: Yes

(and what ram should I switch to if i need to change it)

Thanks

Hmm $757 just tower with hardware in w/o OS/LCD right? Think *if* u hand pick your h/w you could get a better gaming rig...

Well it's not as hard to DIY if you could spare the time, etc For GPU choice: that would depend on what resolution you game on ^^

how about native widescreen. Im getting a 22" monitor. I just want to make sure i'm not buying a video card thats much better than the processor or vice versa, they should work well together right?

If that 22" is with native 1680 x 1050 resolution a GTS 250 - HD 5770 would suffice
