I am building a computer with a budget of $1000 or less. These are the parts. Would you recommend changing anything? I'm unsure if the PSU wattage is correct and that the cables would be long enough to connect to everything inside the full tower case. I already have a keyboard, mouse, and a monitor.

PSU wattage is way more than this computer needs. I don't see any problems and it looks like a pretty decent build. Also just to let you know OEM versions of Windows are motherboard bound btw, which means that you would have to either call Microsoft to see if you can get the OEM version of Windows to work on another motherboard or have to buy another copy of Windows 7.

If it's more than the computer needs then that means I can add stuff on in the future :D

Hello ? I'm going to guess you started this thread on here in the hopes of getting the best for your money. This is a gaming build correct?

First off that 1100T is a dud. Second that 6850 is a mediocre card at best not to mention that Earthwatt psu is mediocre also. $1,000 budget...

It gets even worse for that 1100T when it comes to over clocking.

Thanks Why_Me, I ordered the parts for the build you recommended for me. Is it future proof though?
