APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This week hopefully BUDGET RANGE: around $1000 Before / After Rebates

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: computer case, mouse, keyboard, monitor, speakers
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg, TigerDirect COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA

PARTS PREFERENCES: Most Bang for my buck please
OVERCLOCKING: most likely SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Yes

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1440 x 900, 720p HD-Ready

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: please give link to parts I should look at and thank you for your input! I have the Antec 900 Two case just in case if that helps in determining what parts to pick.



So here is what I have come up with:

CPU & MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Optical drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


How does this build look? Are the parts compatible with each other? Are there better parts I should get for the price? Your thoughts? Any other similar builds?

Thanks a lot and again, I apologize for the numerous threads about this. I am redoing it because it was in the wrong format. :pt1cable:

Since this thread has the template, I'll post on this one. be patient and dont create so many new threads. People will respond. This looks like a decent build, keep looking for additional combos. Just a few things however:

If you plan on overclocking your CPU, then you'll need an aftermarket cooler. Here's one- Hyper 212+
And if you are planning to overclock and crossfire, look into a 750W PSU- Antec TP-750


The HD 5850 is overkill for a resolution of 1440x900. Even with one, you can play most games on high to max. Hopefully this helps you out.
