($600) First PC build. Help.

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.

    I followed some of the guides specs and changed somethings and i decided to go with a 6850.
    This is my new build which is $553 after rebate and promo code savings.

    185$ after rebate. That will take you to 580$ still under ur budget. Go with xfx for GPU coz they have lifetime warranty. Just my preference tho.
    Good Luck
  4. k1114's build is exactly what you want.
  5. Haha, Amazon is running out of stock. The average shipping rate is 2-3 weeks.
  6. 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.
