Alright I think this is what I'm going to go with. Let me know if compatability is messed up or anything else you might see. All of your suggestions have been great. I appreciated the info guys. The only thing I'm concerned with is the PSU. Is it going to be able to run everything? Should I stray from that combo and pick up a better one?


My buddy is somewhat on a budget so I can't go crazy with anything. Let me know if there are any huge mistakes on anything I picked out.

One more thing. I am going to go with that SSD, but its kinda small, and I know they can fill up fast especially with the sizes of games today. I was thinking about going with a slower 1TB drive just for back up or less used games anyone have a good suggestion for one?

All your links are bad. You can fix them by just pasting the URL there without the fancy stuff.

Couple questions, what are you going to use this for Gaming?

Is there a reason you went with a Intel over AMD?
That i5 intel is running you a about $200 i'm guessing for a dual core?

If your on a budget, goto a AMD board and CPU and get a quad core for about 30% off the price. If your worried about the CPU then a quad core wont let you down. A high good Phenom 2 3.0ghz quad only runs about $110.

Drop the Radeon thats what $370? and get a $200 nvidia gtx 460 by EVGA.

Many changes could be made.

My setup is a Phenom 2 Quadcore Deneb edition, with a GTX 275 nvidia card by EVGA, 4gb fo OCZ ram, and a OCQ PSU 750w.

I multibox wow accounts and can maintain 1 medium setting and 4 low settings accounts at one time with this rig. I am running SC2 and Deadspace on max graphics.

Remeber not to skimp on your Mobo or Processor. Keep in mind that Radeon video card will be about $275 in 4 or 5 months too. try to get a good return on your investment.

Whats the budget your looking for? because you have some expensive parts here.
