Hey everyone,
This is the first time I am building my own computer and some advice would be great.

Approximate Purchase Date: Sometime this week.

Budget Range: $500-600 Max

System Usage from Most to Least Important: First and foremost is gaming. That is mostly the only reason why I am going to build this.

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Any credible site will do

Country of Origin: United States

Parts Preferences: None whatsoever

Overclocking: Maybe in the future

SLI or Crossfire: Probably not but maybe

Monitor Resolution: 1280x1024 (Might plug it into my 32" with a HDMI cable which is 720p 1366x768)

I have been researching online and this it what I have come up with for my price range.

MSI 870A-G54 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Your build is kind of like my build: http://www.squidoo.com/electronicandmore

But my guide also doesn't exactly fit your requirements either. You shouldn't get the 5770, drop it and pick up a 450 GTS.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The 450 GTS performs better than the 5770 for a lower price. As for your PSU the Antec NeoEco (as in the guide) would be a cheaper option if you factor in shipping. And getting a Samsung F3 1TB would be a better option than a WD 500gb option. The F3 is in fact cheaper same speed and larger in size.

All in all just check out my guide :)  Please :D

I agree to get the Spinpoint. They have excellent reviews and are great performing drives.

I checked out your guide and it is really helpful. I think I might be going with your build because it seems pretty good. Thanks!
