  1. just trying to see how i did for my first build. thanks people
  2. Pretty decent. Personally I would have dropped down to 4 GB of RAM and put the extra $$ into a 460 GTX
  3. 6.5/10
    it would last you 3 years maximum before you go for a new upgrade.
  4. If you don't want criticism don't read this.
    1 Expensive motherboard on a dated chipset only reason to get it is for crossfire and you got a GPU that can't.
    2 Weak graphics card for gaming too good if your not
    3 Poor value cooler
    Its not the end of the world though it should still work well just you could have got more for less.
  5. Drop the *green* HDD for the Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB

    Drop 4GB of RAMs

    Put cash toward the MSI 890FXA-GD65 AM3 AMD 890FX

    That's a slick lookin' case - hopefully, when your PSU blows up it will put on quite a show, too :D

    Buy a $70 case and put some of the $$ saved toward a new PSU

    Drop the GTS 450 -- hopefully we've squeezed enough cash out to bump you to the $160-range and the HD 6850 1GB
  6. i would have dropped the gts 450 (which i bought too =P) for a ATI 5830, in the UK its cheaper than the gts 450 and 5770 (slightly better than gts 450) and get more FPS than them in benchmarks:

  8. I would say that this is a very good starting build. However I believe that you can add some things to make a more enthusiast build.
