First time building a computer like this and i'm kind of excited about it :) . I've done some research and have come up with something that I think should be ok (all prices are the ones given on the MSY price-list from above):

CPU: ($187) AMD X4 955


RAM: ($139) 4G DDR3 1333 G-Skill Ripjaws

GPU: ($464) nVidia GTX 470

HDD: ($85) Seagate SATA 1TB

PSU: ($170) Thermaltake EVO Blue 750w

CASE: ($154) Lian Li Lancool K62 (If I can't get this one, I also like the Thermaltake Armor+ MX for $145).

So what does everyone think? Will it work? Any suggestions on parts?

Thanks in advance for any advice. Like I said this is my first time building a computer so any help will be much appreciated.

  1. Nice choice of parts. But then I think you already know that.
    Lancool Dragon Lord K62 is a lot better case than the Armor+ MX IMO.
    Have fun.
