http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... EVGA 560 GTX

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 4 gigs of DDR3 @ 1600

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 650W Rosewill PSU

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 750GB Caviar HDD

I'm pretty sure these will work great together, I'm just looking for opinions ^.^

All this together (didnt include the DVD drive) is just 620 dollars

Tell me what you think :) 

Thanks, Uber

You definitely need at least 8 gb of RAM to keep up with that processor and video card.

Agree with roblaw42. Especially considering how cheap the extra 4GB of RAM will cost you.

4gb is fine.

650w is overkill. 500w is recommended

Get this 1tb Samsung spinpoint

Get an AM3+ motherboard so you have upgrade options

Get a 955 $105

There is no difference that justifies the $10 increase over the 965.

Get 8gb of ram with money saved or stretch your budget and get a 560ti.
