I would have done that build but they ran out of the graphics card and they raised the price on the motherboard. I changed the build a little bit and this is what I came up with:

AMD Athlon II X4 640 Propus 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor ADX640WFGMBOX

Case + HDD

Graphics card + motherboard

PSU + RAM

Its actually a little bit more expensive than yesterday, so I would appreciate if you guys could revise on this build to make it even better. I will order everything today.

Is there also any difference between the 700MB version of the GTX 460 and the 1GB version? I was thinking maybe downgrade to the lower version and upgrade the processor to the phenom quad core.

yea.. more nvram on the gpu lol.
if your gaming your gpu dependent as long as your proc. isn't holding you back.
I'd stay with the gtx 460 1GB the extra memory there will come into play.

^ Not only extra vRAM, but also the memory interface is wider at 256-bit compared to the 192-bit of the 768MB version...And at higher resolutions say 1680x1050 and above, the extra vRAM would come into play...

So is everything in my build compatible with each other and is there any changes to it that would serve me better?
