APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This week-tomorrow

BUDGET RANGE: 900-1100

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: gaming, Internet and watching movies online, homework, ect...

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse...But it would be nice to get some in combo deals.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg or cheaper

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA
PARTS PREFERENCES: HD 5850 (maybe the 5770 if I cant tell a difference while gaming)...Quad Core 3.2/3.4....Corsair PSU....

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe down the road if I can...?

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Whats this?!

MONITOR RESOLUTION: Well, anything large...1900x ???



I'm not sure if I pieced this together properly (thinking I might have missed some combo deals-would be nice to get keyboard/mouse included). I would like to cut costs if it won't be a big performance change. I would like this to be expandable as this will be my PC for a while. Otherwise, Please rate it for me!

Thank you for any advice!

Just beware when buying items from www.newegg.com,i heard of rumors that they were selling fake i7 cpu's,i cant remember exactly the website where i heard about it so im just warning you if you do read this thread.I may be wrong though.But thats just a rumor.Also too,if money is your concern,i'd go with 5770 instead of 5850 because 5850 uses more power consumption compare to 5770 which uses less and stay away from nvidia if electricity bill is the problem,because they use alot more power.Off course you will get huge performance from 5850.Graphics Cards Thermal Design Power (TDP) Database,the website is www.geeks3d.com and look under that TDP section for power usage.Minimum power to run the 5770 is 550W from corsair thats if you are planning to overclock the cpu by more than 30% and overclock video card such as xfx 5770 xxx.Also too if you notice the AMD cpu's uses alot more power consumption than the ,i3 500,i5 600,i5 700,i7 800.But not the i7 900 which uses 130 tdp,but has alot better in performance.So if power wise,i recommend the i5 700 and i7 800 quad.There better in terms of power usage and performance.
Any way correct me if i'm wrong.Thank you.

You're corrected. Not a rumor, and old news. NewEgg sells 300 counterfeit Core i7-920 CPUs
NewEgg is about the best online option there is out there. They quickly made things right with everyone involved. Counterfeit items are a big problem everywhere, not just in the PC parts business.

damn the fake i7-920,they must be ashamed of them self.thank you.
yes,get the windows oem version,there cheaper than the retail ones.and secondly,oem stands for original equipment manufacturer,which i think they are better than retail version because there real and cheaper.at least i think it is.
but make sure you get the 64 bit so you can get the full memory ram usage other wise the 32 bit,you will only about 3 point some thing of memory ram if you get the 4gb memory ram,so get the 64 bit instead.about the psu,well go by others,because simply me id say for the 5850 xfire which requires 2x 5850's and the psu minimum requirement is well,only you will know what processor and number of video cards you want to put in etcetra.so here's the website for the psu requirement http://www.corsair.com/retailer/psu_finder_default.aspx... luck.
if any one want to add comments about it,feel free.thank you.
