  1. Looks good, though I think the memory is a bit overkill, a DDR3 1333 (like this) would do as well. The PSU has lots of room, I would probably go lower and pick a more premium brand, the Corsair 650TX is available at the same price at Newegg right now. For processor, you might want to look at the Sandy Bridge i3's. Similar price with better peformance but the motherboard will cost you a bit more.

  2. Actually, you might want to look at todays $500 gaming build for ideas as well.

  3. Could try out my 600$ build
  4. Spend the extra and sandy bridge. It'll be worth it in the long run.
  5. hey guys, not sure if its strong enough to run the system but i just bought parts for a gaming system

    amd 840 phenom 2 quad core 3.2 ghz processor
    Asus M4A78LT-M
    Corsair TW3X4G1333C9 2x2G PC3-10666
    Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 1GB video card
    samsung dvd-rw sata drive
    seagate 500Gb sata drive
    win7 64-bit

    however I now wonder if my case's (Coolermaster RC-P100 ATX BLK/RED w/550W) PSU is enough to run the video card and the whole system or not...

    if its not, what would be good for power?
