Hi all i am new in this forum and i was wondering if you guys could see this system and tell me what you think about it,and well tell me if its gonna last...

first of all i wanna start saing that i´ve never build a system before and i actually have a P4 based system (i know it sucks :cry:  ) but after some time i´ve decided that it is time to upgrade!! but i was afraid that because of my lack of experience in building system i might have selected something wrong or just bad... sorry for my english....

well i selected this from amazon and well... tell me what you think if its good or if you would recomend me to change something... here it goes!+ :bounce: 

*CPU: amd phenom II x6 1055T 2.8GHz (i will like to overclock to 3.5)
*Motherboard: MSI fuzion 870a-g54
*GPU: Crossfired Asus 6850 (i will like to overclock the core to 900)
*Case: thermaltake V5
*HDD: WD 500gb Caviar blue
*Ram: 8gb DDR3 1333 MHz kingstom KVR1333D3N9K
*Extra Fans: 2x cooler master 120mm
*Psu: Coller Master 650w GX series
*Display: LG M2762D 27-Inch Widescreen 1080p LCD TV/Monitor
*CPU cooling: stock cooler with artic silver 5 thermal paste(not actually a CPU cooler :D )
*Game pad: Wired Xbox 360 controller (black)

Well... what do you think?? is really important for me that somebody check my system and tell me if anything is missing or if i need to change something... and most important how will games run?? like MW2, COD black ops and what about Crysis 2?? i know it is not out yet but you think i will be able to run it?

Well this build on amazon is 1326.76$... is that price good for this system?

Thank you all... and sorry for my english :)

Looks like a pretty solid build. I would change out :-
RAM - for Corsair 4 GB DDR3 240-pin Memory Kit CMV4GX3M2A1333C9 HERE AT Amazon for $61.
PSU - for Corsair CMPSU-550VX 550-Watt VX Series 80 Plus Certified Power Supply HERE AT Amazon for $60 after rebate.
HDD - Western Digital Caviar Blue WD10EALX 1 TB Internal Hard Drive for $80

I walked through your entire build at amazon and only came up with just under $1.100. Was there going to be 2 video cards to go in your build? Hope not cause it looks like you're only going to get 1 at X16 so the second one would be a waste.

Found -
CPU - AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8 GHz HERE for $180, free shipping
Mobo - MSI 870A-G54 AM3 HERE at Newegg for $100
V Card - ASUS AMD Radeon HD 6850 1 GB GDDR5 Here for $205
Case - Thermaltake V5 Black Edition Mid-Tower Gaming Chassis HERE for $45 after rebate
PSU - Corsair CMPSU-550VX 550-Watt VX Series HERE for $59 after rebate
RAM - Corsair 4 GB DDR3 HERE for $61
HDD - Western Digital Caviar Blue WD10EALX 1 TB Internal Hard Drive HERE at for $80
Monitor - LG M2762D 27-Inch Widescreen 1080p LCD TV Monitor (Black) HERE for $300
GamePad - Xbox 360 Wired Controller HERE for $35
And I figure fans at about $20
So that brings my/your total to $1,085 with some more for shipping on some of the items I didn't check to closely. Is that what you are looking at. Did I miss anything? I tried to keep as much as I could with Amazon like you did but a couple items I couldn't find so I substituted with places I buy from. So with a few changes added I think you'll enjoy your new system for a while.
