  1. For starters, your HDD is way to small for downloading "TONS" of files. Also Bulldozer is supposed to be out between the 12th and the 17th, so you'll want to redo your CPU/motherboard pick at that time. (And either way for gaming go with the x4, not the x6)

    Thats not a brand of wireless NIC I've used, so I can't comment there besides the general statement of go wired. :P
  2. ^ As said, wait for Bulldozer.

    That wireless adapter virtually makes no difference. Go with either Ethernet cable or just a cheaper wireless adapter.
  3. Ok thanks! But I think i will expand my budget to $1000 (MAX)
  4. The graphics card is a bad deal. I saw on Tiger Direct yesterday the same card for $250 with Dirt 3, Total War, and DuEX: human revolution all included. Take your time looking for just the right parts. You have plenty of time to do so.
  5. ^ I don't really like Tiger, but if that's the case good deal.

    Alright with the $1000 budget, you could check out my $850 build here:

    When Bulldozer comes, I'll probably add that into the guide. But as for now, that'd be the $850 build I suggest.
