  1. If it's for gaming get a HD 6850/6870.

    Swap for your ram -$20
    Using the price from Microcenter for you - $40
    you have no dvd burner listed so i guess you dont need - $20
    total = $903 with a much better graphics card, psu, and its a 1TB HD.

    Too much spent on the case, get the NZXT Lexa S

    NZXT Lexa S - http://goo.gl/9P8AY

    For a GPU, get the 6870, here's a list of trusted manufacturers on Newegg

    ATI Radeon HD 6870 - http://goo.gl/yDPy6

    I'd get a 650W, not 600

    Corsair 650TX - http://goo.gl/eqmeW

    Get a Samsung Spinpoint F3 1 TB, not a WD

    Samsung Spinpoint F3 1 TB - http://goo.gl/VCpcK

    and I hate you for how cheap you can get that PSU, how does Micro Center make any money >_>
  4. Ok thanks
    I want with the Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
    The NZXT Lexa S. The only thing that i didn't like about the antec is that its gray inside.
    The XFX HD 6850
    I would like to get the power supply that is HX not TX so would it be ok if i want with

    you could check out this mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131400

    cooler master isn't known as a great power supply, if you want better quality without paying the $100+ for a corsair, look at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341018.

    you could cut some cost by going with a mid tower. you aren't running a hot card, sli or crossfire or OC'd i7 or anything. you can get a mid tower with 4 fans with plenty of air flow for half the price.

    you could either save that money or use it to upgrade your graphics card to a 5830, gtx 460 or 5850
