My first build -Gaming PC


So I want to give building a PC a shot. This is what I have thus far:

MSI 890fxa-GD70
Sapphire 5970
G Skill 3 x 4gb DDR3 2000
AMD 970

Thoughts? Suggestions? I'm looking to stay under $ 2000 and get some decent Black Friday deals.

  1. go back to the forum and go to the top stickied thing "read before posting" then go to "how to ask for help"
    copy and paste the questionnaire.
  2. Sorry, I'm working on my phone, as my PC died while I was researching this. Think its the power supply.

    Budget: Under $ 2000. Future proofing built in.
    System Usage: Gaming, surfing net with multiple windows with multiple tabs of firefox open while gaming, storage of high resolution photos
    Parts not required: Need everything. My 5 year old dell will be parted out
    Site preferred: New Egg
    Country: USA
    Parts Preferred: Best performance and quality for the price.
    Overclocking: I don't have experience doing this, so I should probably stay away for the moment
