Ok so this is my first time that im gonna try and build a computer. My budget is $600-$800 Before I start anything I want to inform that I have a computer and recently upgraded stuff and im wondering if its worth it to do this for crhistmas. I have a AMD Radeon HD 6770 Vapor-X Graphics Card From Sapphire. I also Have bought (G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL) Ram and a amd phenom 955 black edition proccesor , CW 500 WATT power supply from corsair. I wanted some help on figuring out what to get and i have some ideas I need help on some components of the pc and how to put them in.

My Current Computer:

Computer: Lenovo H215
OS: Windows 7
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ955FBGMBOX
Graphics: SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100328VXL Radeon HD 6770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
Power Supply: CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Memory/Ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

My New Computer Idea:

Case: Unknown
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V LE LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
OS: Windows 7
CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I72600K
Graphics: (Crossfire X2) SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100328VXL Radeon HD 6770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
Power Supply: Unknown
Memory/Ram: (X2) G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
Hard Drive: Unknown
DvD Rom: Unkown

Is there any way I can get something like this for $800 The intel i7 I saw some that were like in the $250s so I dont know the difference but please tell me if theres a lower priced one and the unknown means I need some information on what to get and make it fit my budget area please.

You can save $100 straight away by using the 2500K which games just as well

Since you are sticking with AMD you should only buy a motherboard that supports the AM3+ bulldozer processors that should be released in the next couple of weeks . Fortunately your Phenom will also run in the new mb's .

Ideally a mb with a 970 or 990 series chipset

What is your budget?

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advic... <--- you could copy and paste this on here and fill it out so we nobody here is trying to guess. That way this thread doesn't end up being three pages long when we can all just cut to the chase.
