SO what I've been wondering is if the cpu is fast enough or should I go for something like a 955 or (even go with intell)? Does the motherboard come with extra cables because would I hate to have to buy any. My main question is if the 5850 is overkill considering my monitor is only 1050p if it is what should i move to, considering i want to play games on all high settings for a while.
since I'm also new to building what precautions should i take while building?
well, the 925 is fast enough even the x3 720, though if you can i think it's worth going with the 955. The 5850 is not really an overkill for some games like 2033 and crysis, but for most of the games it's, I have one my self and I think it's the best bang for the buck right now because it can play any game at those resolutions and will probably last a while playing all the games with very high details. so go for the 5850!=)
Gaming on a 1000$ budget at a resolution of 1680x1050...
CPU: Intel Core i5 750
MB: ASUS P7P55D-E LX
RAM: OCZ Platinum 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTX465
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB
CASE: Cooler Master HAF 932
PSU: Corsair 650TX
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 x64 Home Premium
^This will add up to 1,123$ approximately. If you want to shave off money, get a cheaper mid-tower case like an Antec 300 or CM haf 922, then downgrade the ram from the cas 7 to cas 9. If you still want cheaper, get DX11 card from ATI, maybe a 5850.
