Alright, looking to get a good gaming machine going for under 1k with everything listed in the title.

Ive priced out one and have it sitting at exactly 1k with tax and shipping and all the promo codes. Let me know what you guys think of the build and if it could be improved in any way.

antec case

OCZ 550w PSU

AMD Phenom II X2 555 BE

ASUS AM3 AMD 785G (has ddr3, USB2, 2 PCIe)

Saphire HD5770 1gb

Samsung 1Tb SATA 3, 32mb cache

Liteon 24/16 cd/dvd

G Skill Ripjaw 2x2GB (4gb) ram 1333


Windows 7 64 Bit

Logitech G15 keyboard
Logitech MX 518 mouse

So its everything but a moniter, which I have a 22" samsung. A lot of the pieces choosen were because of promos (mobo, HDD) which help keep the costs down. the total before tax and shipping is 930.

^ The links are fine for me,...
As for the build, some suggestions -
Get this CPU + RAM combo
X3 445 + Mushkin 4GB DDR3 - The Tri-Core would be a good option for a gaming PC IMO...

Graphics card - I would suggest this one -
EVGA GTX 460 - Might cost just a bit more than the HD 5770, but offers performance comparable to the HD 5830...
