^ the i7 9xx is a socket 1366 and wont fit that board - socket 1156...
You would need i5 7xx or i7 8xx CPUs...

And HDD - 2TB Green ? No boot drive ?

^ Hmm maybe the i7 870 for just $5 more ?
Also you should know that this build is kinda overkill, but if you are fine with it, then its ok...

And budget?
September 20, 2010 1:14:19 PM

If you want to bring down the price, then you would have to do these changes
CPU - i5 760 - This is also very good for gaming and performs better than the AMD X4 965...

SSD- You would have to drop the plan for now...You wont notice any in-game performance increase too, though would reduce boot time and load time...

HDD - Get the Samsung F3 1TB for now...

Graphcis card - HD 5870.

Drop the SSD for now and get this HDD

Video card, based on the money left, get the HD 5870/ 5850 or maybe even the GTX 470...

http://www.amentio.no/Avdelinger/datautstyr/Skjermkort/... As you can see it only cost 2500 Norwegian Kroner, i am willing to pay about 3500 for the GPU so any other suggestion?

Ok, so all the specs i wrote are fine, but i get the Gigabyte n470SO-13I instead of the eVGA 470 GTX? is the gigabyte better than the eVGA? just wanna be 100% sure

September 21, 2010 8:32:27 AM

^ Generally EVGA cards are better, but this one is you can say an exception. Also in US EVGA is preferred because of the Lifetime warranty...
