It's my first build and I would love some input I already have the corsair case and am waiting on buying every thing else I have 400$ to blow so go ahead and help I'm going to be using this for casual games like cod 4 and terraria not games like crysis and I will be using it alOt for movies and music so that's a big issue

If that doesn't work then here

Spend $100 less on the case .......send that one back

use a 970 series chip set motherboard

and get a Phenom X4 955

use a cheaper non modular psu if you have a tight budget

Well , in that case why not use one of the fusion APU's

GIGABYTE GA-A75M-S2V FM1 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard $214

Kingston HyperX 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 $60

Total is $274
You get a quad core processor , graphics built in to the processor that can play games OK . All round its stronger than the 880g and Phenom X2

You can add a graphics card later if you wish

Aight yea thx oh and do u say it's better then the phenom because it's 4 cores cause I personally intended on unlocking extra cores jw and if that was the prob I could get a black edition 955 also ( quad core) Oh and just saying I can go up to 400$ so I was try to get tge most out of it idc if I spend it all or a lil more just saying THXZ A TON FOR UR HELP

I would be surprised if you can unlock cores on the Phenom

The Llano cores are essentially the same with a few small refinements anyway , and you get much more powerful graphics than the 880g chipset

You still need a hard drive , psu and dvd drive to complete it too, but that can be done pretty easily

Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-520 520W ATX12V $69

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB $60

and a dvd drive for $20

Heres a review with some performance figures for the APU
