Gaming PC Final Build Comments/Advice

This build is for gaming and I had a budget of $570. I did not need a hard drive, DVD drive, or OS. This is also a first time build. I will be hooking this up to a 24 inch 1080p monitor. What do you guys think. Should I use the $20 left over and put it towards something else. ONLY if its worth it because I don't feel like spending the extra cash. Maybe knock $50 or $40 off the case and go for a i5 quad. Should I go with an AMD instead? Please answer all of the questions. I am probably not going to crossfire or overclock.

  1. that ram is less w/rebate and no taxes from amazon. taxes from newegg though
  2. No taxes only if he's in california. Rebates are not worth the effort with PNY.
  3. sorry im in CA :( too much taxes
  4. Allied makes the psu and they are a low end company. It says 500w but can't actually sustain it, probably only does 432w. It would be better to get a better quality psu also with at least 80 plus efficiency. $5 more for the increased efficiency will save you more money on the electric bill.

    Its one of the best. Go for it.
  7. With the changes made you will have a good solid system with the ability to upgrade within the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors like the Intel Core I5-2500K. Also with the H67 you will have a PCI-e x16 slot for you to a good video card in if you choice to upgrade to that.
