This is my first time building a computer and I am looking to build a gaming computer. These are the parts I picked out and was wondering if that's all I need besides the OS and DVD drive and are they compatible? Also will all of the parts fit in the case and are there any better parts for the prices I have? I will be playing on a 24 inch 1080p monitor, is this setup good for gaming? Should I get a less powerful CPU and more powerful GPU? If you could please answer these questions.

u could probably try to squeeze in a 6950 2GB around your budget.

getting an x3 instead saves a few bucks with out much gaming performance penalties

Haha, Amazon is running out of stock. The average shipping rate is 2-3 weeks.

Sapphire is making the smart move by liquidating those cards. if i had a stockpile of 5850s i would also slash the prices, because in 6 months NO ONE will buy them. The other manufacturers seem to have a different plan.
