I'm looking to finally upgrade from my single core old pentium.

Looking to spend around 750$ give or take a little. Only part I don't need is a monitor, mouse, and keyboard.

Looking to buy within the next week or two.
Primary usage = Gaming in MMO's
Current monitor is LED 1080p 1920 x 1080
Was also looking at two different CPU types the Phenom II x6 or the i-5 2500k from Intel.

any input would be much appreciated.

Hi,

The X6 series is not ideal for gaming. You can get an i5 2400 + H67 mobo for the same price and get better results.

Power supply is overkill. You will be fine with a 500W.

You can probably get a HD6870 fro that price and get better performance.

Anyway, take a look at this $800 build.

If you don't like the case, yours is fine.
