New Computer

New gaming computer I'm building that can handle Crysis at max settings 1920x1080. Got a $2000 budget but would prefer to not max it out. I'm buying from amazon to avoid tax and for super saver shipping. Any thoughts/recommendations?

    Your build list seems to be missing a CPU cooler. Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 120mm CPU Cooler,

    unless overclocking, stock heatsinks do just fine
  3. I don't think I'm going to overclock, as I want this build to last me as long as possible. So I won't need the extra fan, and I'm probably going to stick with the 965, as I don't want to spend so much on the processor when I already have a nice graphics card. Remember, this computer is mostly for gaming.

    Thanks for the replies though. Any other thoughts?
  4. For a non-overclocking, single GPU system a good 550W PSU will be plenty of power. Corsair Enthusiast Series 650-Watt 80+ Bronze Power Supply 650TX v2 $88 & $10 rebate

    For a non-overclocking single GPU build you don't need a Quad/Tri CrossfireX motherboard like the $$154 a/r MSI 790FX-GD70.
