Hi, i want to build a computer, so i wanted to first ask the experts on the field, i want a budget computer that i can run good Games,also for simple standar jobs (word processor,internet navigation, etc etc)... i'll also be using Vmware and use multiple virtual machines(i'm a developer) also programs like Oracle,SqlServer,Weblogic etc.

so i choose something simple, my budget it is low for this about $500 and i would like some one to tell me the pros and cons of what i have chosen, for example i'm not sure what type of powersupply will be fine with the following or if all this will fit, so thank you all for the help and this is what i will be looking to buy:

-AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 2.8gHz price $150
-MB Gigabyte
GA-880GA-UD3H or GA-870A-USB3 price $95 and $88
-Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 price $120
-Corsair XMS3 8 GB (2 x 4GB) 1333 price $55
MHz PC3-10666 240-Pin DDR3
Memory Kit CMX8GX3M2A1333C9

please let me know if this is ok and what powersupply you think it will be good, any other suggestion about any part i have listed will be apreciated :)

First of all wait for a couple of weeks so that bulldozer chips come out, they should be much better than the previous generation.

You can get many memory kits from gskill for example that have: 2x4GB 1.5V CAS9 1600Mhz specs.
Which you should have. Gskill ripjawsX 2x4GB 1.5V CAS9 1600Mhz $49.99

Mobo you want to make sure it has an AM3+ socket.
Asrock 870 Extreme 3 R2.0 for example fits the bill $92

XFX has a good set of PSU's. You should be fine with about 550-650W PSU.
XFX Core Pro650W $89.99 ( before $30 MIR )

GPU: If you can fit it into your budget a 6850 can be had for $135 after rebates. Nice amount of additional performance over 6770 or 5770.

There are already sites listing BD . They must be here very soon .

Buy a mb with a 970 or 990 series chipset for full compatibility , and buy 1.5 volt RAM
