Now i need some one to check that everything will work with the respective components, and that they will all work within the power supply. I'm a new builder, never built my own pc but i need a decent pc that will work for the next 2 years for mmos coming out. I'm not looking to make a beast, just a mid-range gaming pc that can work for at-least 1-2 years before a major overhaul.

Important Questions
Will it work?
enough power?
is this a decent gaming pc, with future updatability?
am i missing anything that is need?

Thank You in advance, needhelp1989

$130 for that case ? You'd be spending $20 more on the case then you are on your monitor. Get a SATA drive, not an IDE one. I'd go with a cheaper case, cheaper motherboard and upgrade your monitor and GPU.

Do you recommend a case, and mother board, I'm kinda new to building computers.

I don't see why you think it is a crappy cpu. Most of those benches are comparable to each other. Not to mention the fact that intel invests allot of money to have programs optimized for their CPU. Plus I bet that most of the test are not suited for 6 core CPUs.

First off the OP stated in his first post on here that his build is entirely for gaming. That cpu like all AMD's suck the big one when compared to the SB cpu's. And for 6 cores...that cpu is a dog imo unless you narrow it down to a few proggy's out there that benefit from it. All in all the SB cpu's mop the floor with any AMD cpu out there at atm including those 6 core cpu's.

Go to any major site on the net and look at the benchmarks. They all pretty much say the same thing.
