    I have no idea what resolution my tv is sorry.
  4. oh, and I forgot to add windows 7 to the list, (so used to having a million copies....) so another 100$ sorry I wentso far over budget! You can also check out the Tom's hardware system building things, they have one for around 700, I think.
  5. for res, if you have a computer hooked up to it you can go Control panel<appearance and personalise (or something liek that) and adjust screen res...

    Thanks this sound great! would it be easy to go cross fire and down the road could I upgrade to a new Cpu?
  8. Yeah, you will be able to crossfire two 5830's in this, and the AM3 socket shouldn't dissapear for a while, so future upgradeability is good too. Happy fragging :)
  9. Do you recommend the HAF over the storm scout
  10. I changed it up to an amd Phenom II X4 955 Deneb are there any other changes you would recommend to give me a knee up?

    And maybe different Mobo? I have never heard of ASRock. also will 650W be sufficient for a lot of stuff I plan to upgrade quite a bit down the line. maybe an upgraded GPuis radian better than nvidea? As you can tell its my first build sorry for all the questions.
  11. The X4 955 is a good choice, as it can overclock MUCH easier than the other Phenoms. The ASRock will be perfect, and the 460 1 Gb is the next obvious choice up. I wouldn't go for the GTX 460 768 mb, as the video memory won't be enough for some more graphics intensive games. Other than that, the HAF is amazing for airflow (best you can get) and it will be a better value over the Storm Scout.
  12. The XFX 650 is one of the best PSU's for the money out there, and XFX is an excellent manufacturer.
