  1. The link for the gpu is a 5850 not a 5870, which is way way way too over priced imo. Also consider a better monitor resolution for the gpu that your intending on buying, like 1920x1080.

    Whats your budget for the project and what do you intend to use it for?

    Id also advise against that combo you choose as you can get much better for your money.

    For the budget i would prefer between 1200 and 1300$can. I'm a gamer, but not a hardcore one... so I need a system that can run the new games and that won't be obsolete in a year.

    So far cost $5 more then Newegg system after rebates with the XFX psu,dvd, and a $100 case.
    Better mobo,ram, and psu.
    You could buy any case you like.

    Lots of good 5850 deals out there but i would still wait for the 6000's to come out and see what gives.

    Dell has very good deals on monitors all the time and have a 3yr warranty/free shipping.
    You might have to spend a few more bucks but i bought a 23" 1920x1080 fully adjustable monitor with DisplayPort for $179 Can.
  4. If u have needs outside gaming such as

    a. Encoding
    b. Rendering
    c. Compiling
    d. Linux based workstation functions
    e. Video/Image editing

    then yes an X6 would make perfect sense else

    If u insist on a 1680 x 1050 display

    Rana 445 - Deneb 955BE
    870 chipset (if SATA/UBS 3.0 is desired) else 770/785G
    4GB DDR3
    HD 5770/192bit GTX 460
    500-600W 80+ PSU

    good to go ^^

    Thanks for your answer btw. I'm really new to all this stuff so i had a few more questions :

    1-can you explain to me what are those parts... if I understand the "OCZ FATAL1TY 550W" is a fan, the "OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W" is a power supply, but then what is the "XFX 650W XXX Edition Single Rail Modular"?

    2-is there any "5850 deal" that you can suggest to me?
  6. 1) Those are all three power supply. Just different versions of them with different power. Anything with a number and then a "W" Usually is a power supply.

    2) $260 after MIR

    Makes me wanna cry! i paid over $300 for my 5850 in January and it came with a crappy game.
    now i'm thinking xfire at that price !

    btw Ncix pricematches any instock item in Canada.
    Your best bet would be to get a case at Newegg since shipping cases can be very pricey(weight).
    The 902 is a very good deal .Solid gaming case,good cable management,exceptional cooling and airflow.Quiet.
    Cons - lacks mobo cut-out,psu filtered cut-out,readily accessible intake filters.
    Was going to buy a HAF 922 but saw it in person.It's BIG.Also a very good gaming case.Preferred the aesthetics of the 902 up close.
    The CM 690II is also a good deal,very nice to build in,good cable management,accessible intake filters.Well built and designed,nice airflow.
    Btw i own a 902 and a CM 690II Basic both have exceptional airflow.
    Cases are a personal choice though.
    All i can say is the Antec and CM cases i own are well built and no cheap outs anywhere quality wise.
