Hi, I need a gaming build around $1,000 (Max $1200)

Processor: AMD

Graphics Card: HD Radeon 5850 or 5870

Motherboard: Undecided

Power Supply: 700+ watt

Case: Coolermaster 922

Memory: DDR3 (undecided)

Samsung 22' referbished 1680:1050 (2 if possible)

Crossfire/SLI: Eventually yes

Overclocking:Maybe (if its worth it)

Games:Shooter RPG (Cod:4, Modernwarfare 2, Fallout 3, ect.)

So, I originally wanted to get an alienware,but there so overpriced its unbelievable how they even make money...So i decided to try my hand at building one but im at a loss at what my components should be I've probably switched designs 20 times already so any help would be useful

Monitor is totally not worth it. A new 1920x1080 is only $15 more. Fill out form in sticky, link in sig.

Optical $20

Spinpoint F3 $55

LG 21.5" 1920x1080 $180

Element G case and XFX 5850 $375 w/ $25 MIR

G Skill Ripjaw DDR3 1600 Cas 7 and 850TX $210 w/ $20 MIR.

A 750TX is more than enough, but the 850TX is actually cheaper thanks to combo.

Phenom II x4 955 and Ga 790 ud4 $280 w/ $15 MIR

Promo codes: EMCYVYZ35

Total: $1083.50 before shipping and $60 MIR

OS is another $95 if you need it.
Element G is also a great case, smaller than 922, but has a 200mm side fan and buncha other stuff. Also cheaper ATM thanks to combo.
