Well i have the funding and the permission now i am going to build my first custom computer specifically meant for gaming tell me what you guys think and if there is anything i can improve for cost and proformance-
CASE---NZXT Apollo Black SECC Steel Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
HARD DRIVE---SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
OS---Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders
RAM---G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL
If this is just gaming, you could change to an AMD build with an x4 955 or an 1156 build with an i5-750 for performance that is basically identical to the i7-930.
This would give you the money to upgrade to a 5850/470.
What is the budget?
Also, change to this set of ripjaws: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
