so here is my Build http://yfrog.com/jb78400814p i think its pretty neat. the mobo isnt that bad. but it isnt very good it will be good for casual gaming. so what yea think about the build? the GPu is factory OC so thats good.

^ Nice build...If it is mainly for gaming, then you can easily get away with X3 440...

^ The F3 are currently one of the fastest 7200RPM drives out there...Also they have a single platter design(a single 500GB platter), hence less moving parts - low noise and heat...

^ Yes the GTX 460 768 would be faster, but also is costlier...

That might put you slightly over budget but if you can afford it, yeah.

There is no guarantee that it will be stable(mine wasn't). But it's still a very nice cpu

^ HD 5830 performs similar, but I wouldnt suggest that over this card though...
But if you are able to take advantage of this coupon code, then for $170, the HD 5830 is a good buy...
$30 off w/ promo code VGA161327, ends 8/27
