  4. If the computer is strictly for gaming then the tri core will be enough, but if you really want a quadcore then get a cheaper case.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147144&Tpk=rosewill%20destroyer

    $10 cheaper and free shipping that's $25 saved right there.

    Then get this quadcore

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103702&cm_re=athlon_x4-_-19-103-702-_-Product

    There isn't much left to shave other than the power supply and that is maybe $5 in saving after a rebate. Not really worth it IMO

  5. Yes, the case is really your choice as long as it fits into your budget.
    If you like the look of another case that's cheaper, go for it and get the x4 if you want it (are you playing games that use 4 cores or doing a lot of multitasking/editing?).
    You also could drop some money if you don't care about the quadcore by going to an x3 440 or an x3 435.
  6. The person i am trying to get this for , love playing Bad company 2.
    She never had a gaming computer before. i want her to play with me.
    so yeah Bad company is huge on CPU.
  7. I would change the CPU and graphics card to this:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.432368

    And change the case and cd/dvd drive to this:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.435577

    The total with those changes is $798.57

    Alternatively, if you prefer the sapphire 5850 for whatever reason, change the power supply and processor to this:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.432014

    And change the case and cd/dvd drive to this:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.435577

    The total for that is $783.92
