I have been putting together a list at newegg.com and am wondering if people could look over it and make sure everything is compatible. Also I don't know what size power supply I would need or what type of cpu cooling system. This would be my first build so if I left out any components please let me know. So I would appreciate any help on that. Also could you please rate how this system is for gaming use.
Note: I know I have not added the DVD/CD/BR Rom Drives yet. Still deciding on that.
The i5-2400 would be pretty much the same (maybe max 5% difference) for gaming. It would also save you a lot of money. Also 8GB RAM isnt necessary for games yet so you could also save money there if you want. As for a PSU i would get a 550-600W modular PSU.
