Im building a new computer and the budget is theoritically 2000$ .. 2250 is pushing it but I'll consider it..

Heres the build ive contemplated thus far.. Estimated order time.. a month

Cpu - i7 930 OR 950 if the 300$ price range is still in effect in a month..

Gpu - Radeon 5970 Asus 2gb .. or suggestions about any other good distributor?...

HDD - I was thinking the samsung spinpoint f3 1tb .. any other suggestions? Ive heard reliability issues with the f3

Case- Haf 932 full tower

RAM- STRONGLY open to suggestions but im inticed by the Mushkin enhanced ridgeback 1600 ddr3

F&HS - whatever will adequately cool my processor.. thinking about either zalman or cooler master.. not sure

Motherboard - ASUS P6X58D-E

PSU - Corsair 850tx

I also need a wireless network card? .. so can anyone give me an internal/external (preferably internal) slot card or something that will connect easily to my router... Im only 14 and have never built a computer before so im just getting clearance knowing my build will work before I cajol my dad into spending 2000$ on something that wont work..

What will this be used for? Do you need the monitor/keyboard? What resolution will you be playing at? How long do you keep/plan to keep your computers?
