I'm looking for a good gaming PC for around $800-$1000
Ok so the things I already have picked out are:
HD 5770: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Corsair 650w PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Total: $724

Things I need: (I don't need a keyboard or mouse or case)
8-9 gigs RAM
Motherboard
Dual Layer DVD Burner
Maybe a case fan (i'm just using a pretty old Dell case and I don't know if I can put a fan in)

Also, if you could tell me if the parts are compatible, the PSU could handle them, and if theres something better than what I have if you could suggest it but remember my budget is $800-$1000. And if theres anything else I need that i forgot you can tell me that too.

You dun need more than 4GB RAM and your current config is way too cpu/board heavy and GPU lite for a serious gaming rig for the $$ so

Tower @ $684AR


23" LCD $150
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

$834AR in Total

Suggest u go with a new case as old Dells aren't known to offer half decent airflow even hehe
