Thoughts and Recommendations on New Build.Help!

I'm currently building A gaming system and need some serious help on my specs so far.I also need some help on my cpu on which to get for better gaming since I might purchase a 6850 later on.I need the best Cpu for the money.

My budget is $900 exactly including shipping.So far its 847.00 with shipping.

Should I go for a cheaper Psu or maybe go with a no name Case to save some cash and get a better CPU or something else better?

  2. Looks good although me personally I would have gone with the i5 420 basically an intel build.You should also provide links with your parts to make it a tad bit easier.

    Also you should get a better monitor atleast a 1600x900 res and way better keyboard and mouse.
  3. Heres a monitor at 1600x900 res for a bit more but well worth it. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009238
