    For RAM, the new Corsiar Vengeance is looking very good, also, I wouldn't do less then 8GB of RAM, it's more than enough for today, but who wants to replace that in 1-2 years.

    Any case that can support and ATX motherboard (which is the style of motherboard you chose.) I personally recommend the HAF 912

    The power supply is the one place you do NOT want to go cheap! Corsair is an excellent brand and the TX750 V2 is more than enough power

    For the video card, do you want ATI or nVidia?

    Any hard drive will do, but this one is pretty good.

    Lastly, I noticed you wanted to overclock, that means you will NEED an after market heatsink. This is one of the highest rated heatsink out there:
    But make sure it fits your motherboard style (sorry I'm not very familiar with AMD mobos)
  2. I'd probably want an nVidia graphics card. What would you recommend?
  3. Well in your budget, you could get either the GTX 560 ti or the GTX 570. The 570 is about $100 more expensive but it'll make a world of difference in your games/ gaming. The 570 will also be more difficult to fit into your budget.

    GTX 560 ti

    GTX 570

    Finally, EVGA seems to be one of the best nVidia manufacturers right now for GPUs
  4. okay! thanks alot. but the link to the heat sink is broken. can you relink for me?
  5. I think I forgot to copy the new link, sorry! Here's the Cooler Master Hyper 212+
