Hello everyone! Happy Halloween!

Alright, let's get to it. I'm going to be using this computer for school work, gaming, and for talking to hot Babes online. haha. yeah, I'm just kidding about that last part.... :::awkward face::

OK. I need it to run SolidWorks 2010 and for playing games like fallout 3, Oblivion, Dragon Age, Sims 3, and Mass Effect 2 (Doesn't have to be on max settings or anything). Oh, and I won't be overclocking it and only using 1 graphics card. The total price all this comes out to be is $1,293.89 before tax.

Am I missing anything? What kinda thermal compound should I get? Are the heatsink and fan that come with the processor OK to use? I just ate why am I still hungry?

Looks good to me as if you want to run school work the processor choice looks gurd to me.

But the RAM is no good 4 Gb would be plenty, the cas latency on the ram u picked is bad too high go for this the cas latency is 7 (the lower the better):
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM - $89.99

HDD: Better if you get SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive - $69.99
(highly recomended)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Monitor: For extra $10 you can get this one:
ASUS VH236HL-P Black 23" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen Full HD 1080P LCD Monitor - $199.99 (faster Response Time: 2ms, yours was 5ms, also has a hdmi conector <your babes are gona look better> :D  )
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


GPU: Nicely picked GPU if you want you can spend a bit more and get the 6870 but you dont have to if you dont want the games to be maxed out.

Everything else is looking good :)

Looks good, get this PSU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HDD

Don't get wireless mouse/keyboard because you have to have batteries.. they aren't precise.. yada yada.. if you listen to this you won't regret it.

1) You do not need any thermal compound..
2) The heatsink that comes with the processor is loud but it will work..
3) Let your food digest for 20 minutes.. you won't feel hungry anymore.

+1 +1 +1.
Although I would get a AMD Phenom II X4 965. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727&cm_re=phenom_II_X4-_-19-103-727-_-Product $160
X4 performs better with gaming than X6 does :x.

Thank you, you guys rock!

For school work I would definitely get a raid set up.

You're also buying way too much motherboard. WAY. Sure the ASrock is a good value but it won't run apps or games any faster than a 770.

You don't need crossfire with that monitor resolution. That card will play everything well or great.

You do need an OS but I'm guessing you know to buy the OEM version from Newegg.

All in all a solid choice though I really think you could build that box for $700 without the monitor. The BE CPU, for instance, is not needed if you're not going to overclock. The X6 is just a complete waste of money.
