  1. Best answer
    Couple of recommendations...

    1) Drop down to the Phenom II X4 955, as it will perform better in gaming than the X6 1055T.

    2) I would highly recommend getting the XFX Radeon HD 5850 over the 5830. The 5830 isn't in a good price point, specially with the release of the GTX 460 1GB, which out performs it a similar price.

    3) I would get the Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB instead... Better performance at a lower price.

    The rest of the build look acceptable and don't forget to get / look for Newegg combo deals for additional savings.

  3. +1 Tecmo.

    I don't see why people go with the Corsair TX 750 when you can get the Antec TruePower New TP750 for only $5 more before rebate.
