  1. just get this lol

    AMD PHENOM II X4 955

    XFX ATI RAEDEON HD5870

    ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3

    XFX BLACK EDITION 750W

    G.SKILL 4GB DDR3 1600MHZ PC-12800 CL7 DUAL CHANNEL 7-7-7-24

    SAMSUNG SPINPOINT F3 1TB
  2. On a scale from 1 to 10, 0. You've got a crappy case and PSU, very low quality cards, an overly pricey CPU, a SSD that won't help in game (and is WAY too small), a slow HDD, a worthless BluRay drive, and worthless extras.

    For the money being spent, you're getting an absoultely horrendous build. Here's one that's much, much, much better (making sure the combos and prices are right):

    CPU/Mobo: i5-750 and Asus P7P55D-E Pro $360
    RAM: G.Skill Eco 2x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $105
    GPU/PSU: HD 5870 and XFX 750W $460 after rebate (with free game)
    HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1 TB $75
    Case/Optical: Coolermaster 690 and cheap SATA DVD burner $73
    OS: Windows 7 Home 64-bit OEM $100

    Total: $1,173

  4. I was in the middle of fixing the links and looking for deals. Heck, even in the quote you didn't catch the two PSUs.
  5. +1 @MadAdmiral.
    Even if you toss and replace the fecal Apevia PSU, the X-QPACK2 is a wonderful design, hampered by shoddy materials and workmanship, the latter worsened by poor to non-existent QA.
