First build, What do you think?

Hey guys this is my first time building a computer and would like to know what you think.

The computer is going to be for botting multiply runescape accounts along with playing some high resolution games so I would like to be able to do both.

Video Card : XFX HD-685X-ZNDC Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Ram : Patriot Signature 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model PSD34G13332 x 2 (8gb)

Any feed back would be great.

From what I know, I THINK everything is compatible?

And im confused about the bare drives? Would I have to buy anything else if I buy a bare drive?

Thanks guys.

More about first build think
  1. Looks alright, for the case something like this would great:

    Baredrives is just the hard-drive in a anti-static bag, but since the Mobo comes with SATA cables, all you'll be missing is documentation and a box.
  2. Yeah i was actually interested in that tower. So I would be good to go with a bare drive? And Thanks for the input
  3. Consider this drive? 500GB more for $5

    Bare-drives are fine, technically you're saving the environment too. :>
  4. Wow nice Ill have to get that :) and good haha thanks
  5. I plan on ordering all these parts tonight. Would like to just get assurance that everything is compatible? Thanks.
  6. If you're going all-out cost saving, this cooler is $5 less than the 212+ and not much worse:

    Just wait for the $15 promo card to come and pay $5.

    Also, if you ever plan to upgrade, an AM3+ board would be nice. Though You will be paying a bit more.

    Other than that, everything should work together fine,
  7. Haha yeah I was just thinking about my cpu cooler. Not to sure about the one I have. Do u recommend that one over the one I have?
  8. It has pretty nice reviews. XL size, Do u think it would fit good in the GAMMA?
  9. The Gammas a pretty big case with no side fan so it should fit.

    You're getting a Promo card anyways and the 955 does come with a cooler. So Id say just hold off and wait until you can use the $15. Unless you have something planned already.
  10. Okay everything is compatible. And I'm not going all cheap but if its worth the extra few bucks ill buy it. Yeah I plan on getting the 955 and using the gift card on maybe on the Tuniq Tower 120. And what do you mean by getting the am3+ board? Is it worth the money? And I want a pretty good CPU cooler just because this computer will be on 24/7 with some off time.
  11. AM3+ is the boards with black socket that supports drop-in BDs. If you're not interested, disregard and move on.
  12. Anyonne see any bottlenecking with the components listed above?
