System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming. Going to playing mostly Rift, WoW, SC2, and EVE. Just RTS and MMORPG games. No FPS. Thats what the ps3 is for.
Parts Not Required: Mouse, Keyboard, speakers, monitor. Going to be using my 23in LED tv as a monitor.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.com, and probly amazon.com
Parts Preferences: AMD processor, ATI GPU, at least 4 gigs DDR3
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
Monitor Resolution: Its a 23in LED tv 1080p
Additional Comments: Looks dont matter. My biggest thing is the video card, processor, and MOBO. Everything else can be as cheap as possible. If I do get a decent graphics card, I guess I can settle for a single card MOBO but if not then a SLI/crossfire capable MOBO is ideal. I will also be putting windows 7 64bit in.
Would like the Radeon 6850 but I think it may be a bit overkill and its also 50dollars more. Not sure about a case and Power supply either. Probly going to need a heatsink and fans too right?

Too mobo/RAM heavy and compromising on GPU for 1080p gaming so
Wow you blew my overpriced system out of the water lol. Im new to building computers and i've always used a laptop to game on but the one I have is horrible now with all these new games coming and having integrated intel card was the worst thing I could have did when I bought this laptop 2 years ago.
I knew the MOBO was pretty overkill but I googled everything and did research and that was the best bang for the buck with lots of room to play with. I guess if I'm not going to use the room now its not worth it just yet? The Ram was a decent price too. 75 Dollars for 6 gigs? but your getting me 2/3 that for half the price so i guess yours is better. The stock fans in the case should be suffice without it overheating and what not too?
Yes but you could always get after market case fans when u have more funds and even u looking for a CFable mobo you'd be better off with the Asrock 870Extreme3 as one is paying a premium for 890GXes with its HD 4290 IGP which is over ruled when slotting in a discrete GPU For tight price points best to hit as big frames/$$ ratio rather than CF/SLI for best results ^^ Lastly AM3 is dual channel so 2 x 2 or 2 x 4 for RAM
I didnt see the card in there is the 6870 1 gig card so I guess I'd be alright playing on a 1080p screen so I dont really need a CF able mobo. I guess I'll run the computer first and see how hot it gets and see if I need to get something more.
Ya - personally i have used Yate Loon D12SL-12 for my cases and loved em ^^
well you pretty much sold me on this build so I will go to newegg right now and order. Thanx so much for your help batuchka.
P.S. I love this site.
quick question. Is the XFX 6850 card better then the HIS one? I also read the AMD Phenom II x4 955 is the best CPU for the money. The 970 is not worth it. I see a combo
Pretty much your build batuchka. I get 30$ MIR so Im down to 570$ in the end. Unless someone says otherwise, this is the build I'm ordering tomorrow. well today as its 3am and I've been reading about computers for like 18hrs straight.
