I know i included a game and a keyboard, i plan on running games like Skyrim, Deus Ex and other future games such as Modern Warfare 3 and BF3 at 1440x900 19" Resolution. I like the parts i picked and the brands so please don't say "Get a Zotac GPU" and then leave. Please tell me what you think of the build and if you recommend a part please link it. There is not much give on the price 800 was about all i could afford but im spending 930 so as of now im OVER broke haha so please don't say spend more i cant XD.

All i really want to know is.
1. What kind of gaming performance could i expect from this build on a 1440x900 resolution. Be tight i want to know for sure if this GPU will work on my smallish resolution, i have been waiting for this for a long time so please reply in detail on how you think it will preform.
2. Are there any better deals on some parts? Please link me.
3. About how much overclocking could i do with that aftermarket cooler?
4. Thank you very much for your time, it means a lot to help a noob like me! haha!

MOST IMPORTANT ARE ALL THE PIECES COMPATIBLE?

Check benchmarks at 1280 x 1024 and expect very slighly better performance at 1440 x 900.

I don't know much about AMD's these days, but you might want to check if you should use 1.5v RAM instead of that old school 1.65v Kingston you have up there.

Well i would like some more info on how well you think it would preform.
But the main thing is i need an answer to this question

ARE ALL THESE PARTS COMPATIBLE and can i add a crossfire later with these parts?

Im not a genius or anything (In fact, I am a rookie on hardware). But it should perform exceptionally. The 6850 GPU and 965 CPU are between mid and high range grade. (From what I know. But I don't know much.) One of my builds has them in it. :p

Is there a specific part you are worried about? Since you wrote "I like the parts i picked and the brands so please don't say "Get a Zotac GPU" and then leave. Please tell me what you think of the build and if you recommend a part please link it.", we presume that you are satisfied with your parts selection which all are compatible. Have you considered the Kingston memory kit (same kit without the X for Intel XMP profile) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... That one is on the QVL for 4 modules. It also is the kit Tom's used for their test: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/llano-apu-memory-pe...

nice choice on the mobo, its future proof, theres a rumor that bulldozer releasing date is 19 of this month so maybe you can wait, and again... i know its bad that i say it but, i got a new build and i used a windows 7 that came with my laptop and its running all good, if u get one you will be saving yourself 100 dlls that can be invested to a better gpu you can get a 6950... just saying....

I need my laptop AND my desktop so... care to elaborate on how i could use it on both.


And also i would love a direct link to some new ram, everyone agrees that i need new ram so please suggest an 8 gb at around the same price as the one i have, i can go 10 bucks higher, that is still compatible with the other parts

switch out the RAM for 1.5 volt
RAM slots on that board are rated at 1.5 volt

Buy a Phenom 955 instead . Same part clocked a little lower and you can do that yourself in under 2 minutes

At that resolution adding a second graphics card in crossfire would be foolish since a single 6850 will max out games you want to play . That means the power supply is serious overkill too
A 500 watt unit will be more than enough

If your budget is that tight, then buy the kit that you selected. However I'd buy the kit on the QVL. Get a 955 instead of a 965 and you'll be able to buy the correct memory kit without busting your budget.

Thank you! You took the time to make a response that answered my questions and did not sound retarded!
Ok i don't plan to be at this resolution forever so that's why im thinking of cross firing later and getting that PSU now
Do you recommend the ram that GhislainG posted because after looking i can defiantly increase my budget, im only at 933 and that's with a pre copy of Skyrim, which i don't need yet. If the Ram GhislainG is 1.5v and you recommend it i will add it, everything would still be compatible right?
