I'm trying to throw a new system together that will allow me to run most games coming out in the next couple years on medium to medium-high settings. I don't expect it to handle Microsoft Flight Simulator X on high but I would hope it would be able to manage MMOs like WoW at end-game demand. I don't intend to overclock. The parts I've compiled are as follows:

CD Bay: Sony Optiarc DVD/CD Rewritable Drive Black SATA Model AD-7240S-0B

GFX: HIS Radeon HD 4850 H485FM1GH Video Card

RAM: CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory

HD: Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Mobo: ASUS P7P55D LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard

Case & Power Supply: Thermaltake Element G VL18501W2Z Black Computer Case

Proc: Intel Core i5-750 2.66GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor

Any advice/feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I'd go for the ASUS P7P55D-E Pro motherboard (ASUS P7P55D-E LX if you do not want CrossFireX or SLI/not going to use more than one card, a SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB HDD for $5 more (360 GB & faster speed),and this memory kit which has a faster speed and lower latencies for $2 less.

Non taken : i agree if TS was looking for a compiling, rendering or encoding machine ^^ Though i would go 8GB DDR3 non OCZ and if apps dun take advantage of GPU a 880G chipset instead of a HD 5750?


+1^ for you! :D 

Quick edit he did say he wanted to run Microsoft Flight Simulator X on the machine which is more so RAM and CPU Usage which the system I placed together would be perfect at along with the CPU being future proof and the 8GB of Low Voltage memory being future proof as well.

...except for the PSU; the HEC is an old, inefficient design (at best).
I'd take Batuchka's build and maybe bump the CPU to a 955BE.

I run a HEC 1080Watt I just bought from newegg and runs my 2 GTX260 OC Edition, AMD II x 2 @ 3.0Ghz, 4GB Ram, 1TB HDD, Gigabyte gaming motherboard very well and no problems, as well as my old HEC 585Watt. :??: 

I think its a matter of opinion. :)
