Here's my Newegg Wishlist:


I'm going to start buying on 7.10.11, and I am just looking for input/suggestions for my system. I might want to overclock a bit, but not too much. This computer is primarily going to be used for gaming, such as CoD, Portal, Crysis, BF, etc...

Thank you!

That's not really high-res enough to make out the parts. I think I see a 955 and a 6970, which sounds ok (though the CPU will max out first on CPU-intense games).
A 600W will do you fine. However, Rosewill doesn't really have a good reputation in PSUs. You'd probably be fine, but it would be safer to drop another $10 on something like this Corsair:

Can you list the parts in text for clarity?

Thats way too much to pay for a hyper 212+, they are only charging so much due to the increased popularity. look into one of these instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And bumb for a different case I have that very one you listed and it is complete junk (when the price they sell it for is considered). And you will never recieve the rebate mine was approved about four months ago but still nothing in the mail

If I were you I would be buying an AM3+ M/B just for an easy future upgrade option.

The F3 is usually cheaper on amazon but I'm being lasy and don't want to check.

I would buy these ram sticks:

saves a couple bucks if you buy them now, plus you get G skill quality, should be able to easily match cas8 timings with the extra voltage headroom on these sticks.
