You could refer to my 800-1000$ build that should fit just nicely. You should read my reasoning for each part, It'll shed some light on why I think you shouldn't get some things. IE the WD Black.

As for GPU, it's mentioned as well. At that resolution, you'll struggle to play with a 6850. Go for the 6950 1GB, 6870 1GB, or even the 560 Ti.

Haha thank you dalauder XD

Well I've read your budget builds and I know you keep them updated. There's no sense in anyone else wasting their time to configure another build that's no better.
February 10, 2011 2:08:37 AM

Haha well that is really nice of you. You sound like a defeated dalauder though. Heh.
February 10, 2011 2:35:29 AM

Defeated? No--just lazy. Between you and Why_Me, I don't waste my time posting builds much. Now if you guys aren't active in that thread, then I find a few parts.

The parts list looks good but after looking at the build site most of the parts are from Amazon. Which is all good but the OP may find some better prices at Newegg.
Just from the quick look your write up had the correct prices but the links for the Ti560 was $304 and they are really around $250.00.
Both sites have good prices on different things depends on what kind of deal you can get on shipping I guess.
Nice write up though.

Oh....... Haha yeah, the thing with Amazon that sucks, there prices fluctuate practically everyday. The Hyper 212+ is an example. At the time of the writeup, the 560 Ti was just 260$ on Amazon. Guess its been a while since I've checked.
